Watch the newest ads on TV from Mountain Dew, Sonic Drive-In, WE.org and more

By 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 over the weekend.

A few highlights: Mountain Dew showcases the skills of Chase Elliott in its new spot, with the NASCAR driver launching his car off a ramp to grab a bottle mid-air from a racing fan's slingshot. Sonic Drive-In announces that its corn dogs (which Sonic spokesmen T.J. and Peter dub "the greatest invention of all time") will be 50 cents only on Aug. 23. And We.org promotes a competition with a special prize: the chance to sing karaoke with Kermit the Frog, who's shown preparing for the challenge by lifting weights, picking an outfit (see him in an Elvis costume) and more in a "Rocky"-esque montage.
