Cow Street Musicians Want You to Eat Chick-fil-A, Not Burgers

Watch the Newest Ads on TV; Plus, the Five Most Engaging Commercials Right Now

Published on .

Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new and trending TV commercials tracked by, a company that catalogs, tags and measures activity around TV ads in real time. The New Releases here ran on TV for the first time yesterday. The Most Engaging ads are showing sustained social heat, ranked by SpotShare scores reflecting the percent of digital activity associated with each one over the past week. See the methodology here.

Among the new releases, longtime Wrangler endorser Brett Favre shows up in yet another variation of a continuing campaign; this time he praises the "toughest, most comfortable jeans you'll ever wear" in a spot that also plays up Wrangler's unique "u-shape construction." And Chick-fil-A, which held "Cow Appreciation Day" earlier this summer, shares the message that cows are "2 Talentid 2 B Burgerz" -- at least according to a hand-scrawled (or hoof-scrawled?) sign put out by a group of bovine street musicians.
