Watch the Weekend's New TV Ads From Adidas, Burger King, ASICS and More

Plus, Pizza Hut Wants You to Try Its Eight-Slice Ultimate Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookie

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new and trending TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, a company that catalogs, tags and measures activity around TV ads in real time. The New Releases here ran on TV for the first time over the weekend. The Most Engaging ads are showing sustained social heat, ranked by SpotShare scores reflecting the percent of digital activity associated with each one over the past week. See the methodology here.

Among the new releases, Arby's serves up a new tagline, "We have the meats" (Maureen Morrison previewed the millennial-seeking spot and served up details on the new campaign on Friday), while Burger King promotes its 2-for-$5 menu by claiming that it wants to change the look of the $5 bill. And Pizza Hut hopes you'll try its Ultimate Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookie, a pizza-style indulgence that divides up into "eight large slices of freshly baked cookie goodness." It competes with Papa John's eight-slice chocolate chip cookie but follows a Domino's "Failure is an Option" commercial singling out a "Cookie Pizza" as a "failure." (It also follows, by a much longer time, Domino's hallowed Oreos pizza.)
