Watch the Weekend's New TV Ads From Acura, Arby's and Foot Locker

Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots on TV Right Now

Published on . 0

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, Ving Rhames has more to say about "the meats" in Arby's continuing "We have the meats" campaign, while Kevin Durant delivers a pep talk for the unknown "kid out there putting in work" who might be "the baddest player alive" in a new Foot Locker spot. And Acura's new commercial for the 2015 TLX, which features a Sex Pistols soundtrack -- that's Sid Vicious crooning "My Way" -- has aired 44 times on national TV so far since its debut yesterday, according to iSpot's 24/7 tracking.
