Watch the newest ads on TV from Sling, Samsung, Geico and more

Published on .

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 yesterday.

A few highlights: An arm-wrestling champ and basketball-dunk whiz—the same multitasking woman—has some nice things to say about Geico in the insurer's latest comedic commercial. Sling serves up another in a series of faux-risqué ads starring Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally as enthusiastic "Slingers." And in Samsung's latest, a young Fortnite player enjoys an elaborate fantasy, complete with cameo appearances by Travis Scott and Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, about becoming a pro gamer.
