Watch the newest ads on TV from Samsung, Apple, Coca-Cola and more
Published on March 19, 2018.
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 eight million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time over the weekend.
A few highlights: Samsung hypes the versatility of the "reimagined" camera on the Galaxy S9/S9+. In a Coca-Cola ad, a game-day debate breaks out between basketball fans—eat wings during the game or subs?—but everyone agrees that "You've gotta have ice-cold Coke." And Apple finds an incredibly fun way to promote the Face ID feature on iPhone X (Creativity's Alexandra Jardine has the backstory on the campaign: "A Simple Glance Unlocks Everything (Including an iPhone) in Apple's Spirited Ad").
Attention Index: 75 (25% more interruptions than avg.)

TV Impressions - Total TV ad impressions delivered for the brand or spot.
Est. TV Spend - Amount spent on TV airings for the brand's spots.
Attention Score - Measures the propensity of consumers to interrupt an ad play on TV. The higher the score, the more complete views. Actions that interrupt an ad play include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV.
Attention Index - Represents the Attention of a specific creative or program placement vs the average. The average is represented by a score of 100, and the total index range is from 0 through 200. For example, an attention index of 125 means that there are 25% fewer interrupted ad plays compared to the average.
