Watch the Weekend's New TV Ads From Visa, KFC, Google and More
Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots Right Now
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, Google serves up another spot showing off the capabilities of the Google app -- this time it comes in handy for making a nature-loving road trip more fun -- while 2K Games promotes the Oct. 7 release of NBA 2K15 in a spot starring Kevin Durant. And KFC once again pushes the concept of couchgating -- which is just like tailgating, but a lot less work (you stay home and eat KFC on your couch while watching the game).
