Watch the Newest Ads on TV From Grubhub, Apple, Google 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: Apple's new HomePod gets a wonderfully surreal soft-sell thanks to a collaboration between two artists (Creativity's Alexandra Jardine has the backstory: "FKA Twigs Dances Her Way Out of Depression in Spike Jonze's Film for Apple"). Grubhub promotes its RestaurantHER initiative in suport of women restauranteurs. And Google serves up a fresh variation on its ongoing "Make Google do it" campaign that humorously hypes Google Assistant's wide range of skills.
