Every weekday we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the always-on TV ad measurement and attribution company. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time on Sept. 9.
A few highlights: Bert, Ernie and other Muppets team up with J.K. Simmons in the latest from Farmers (I-Hsien Sherwood has the backstory on the campaign: “Grover and Cookie Monster prove coverage is necessary in a Farmers Insurance tie-up with ‘Sesame Street’”). JuJu Smith-Schuster helps EA Sports hype Madden NFL 20. And Nature Made serves up a fresh TV cut of a wry, selfie-centric commercial that it actually first debuted online last year.
