Watch the newest ads on TV from Target, Lexus, Spectrum 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: SoFi, the online finance company, says "Rest in peace, fees" in a spot that includes a little slow-motion flamethrower action to drive the point home. An announcer explains "the difference between excellence and mastery" in a commercial for the Lexus ES. And Target says that if you've "run out"—of diapers, cleaning supplies, dog food or whatever—you should use its Drive Up service ("Just order with the Target app & we'll bring it right out to your car").
