Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Target, BMW, Apple Music and More

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than seven million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.

A few highlights: Noga Erez's "Dance While You Shoot" is the soundtrack of a visually riveting semi-animated spot for Apple Music. BMW serves up a touching montage of scenes from one family's life over time in a spot that considers the meaning of "the road home." And a lineup of TV and movie characters—including LEGO Batman, Wonder Woman and Darth Vader—team up with a couple of cute kids and Target's canine mascot Spot to create a "home for the holidays."
