Watch the newest ads on TV from Samsung, Taco Bell, the NFL 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: Taco Bell says that "love makes you do crazy things"—like risking "movie jail" when you sneak a Taco Bell Triple Double Crunchwrap into the theater. The NFL hypes the new season of football with a spot that subtly captures the thrill of the game and ends with the tagline "Ready, set, NFL." And Samsung thinks you'll be totally transfixed by the "captivating color" and "gripping 4K" of its 82-inch QLED TV.
