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, designing duo Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta find space to tune out the world and get creative with the help of some Bose headphones; Hulu offers families entertainment no matter the occasion; Walmart saves a lovestruck teen some major embarrassment; and there are levels to the newest rendition of Taco Bell's Crunchwrap.

Finally, a deep dish pizza from Little Caesars shows off its pure-bred goodness and wins best in show.
