Watch the newest ads on TV from Absolut, IBM Watson, Chick-fil-A 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: Chick-fil-A presents "A true Chick-fil-A story" about how one of its store managers from Dumfries, Virginia found a special way to help a family fully enjoy Family Night. IBM serves up a fresh 30-second cut of one of its new IBM Watson ads; this one focuses entirely on how Watson's AI helps maximize the production of wind turbines. And Absolut serves up a short, dreamy animated spot that quietly promotes its new zero-sugar Absolut Grapefruit.
