Watch the Weekend's New TV Ads From Geico, Pizza Hut 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, Target serves up another festive ad to promote its Black Friday specials -- this one plugging the iPad Air 2 -- while Pizza Hut travels to Italy to give "experts" a taste of its unusual new menu, featuring 20 new ingredients. (Maureen Morrison has the backstory on Pizza Hut's big menu overhaul.) And Salt-N-Pepa urge people to push, whether on the football field or in birthing class, and to sign up for Geico.
