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, Corona encourages people to put away their business cards and make personal connections over its beer; Chevrolet canvasses customers for feedback on its Malibu model; and Tostitos shows how its Cantina Chipotle Thins can make a party memorable.

Muscle Milk unveils a campaign featuring Golden State Warriors MVP Stephen Curry, who has endorsed the brand since 2013, and a host of everyday athletes running, dancing and playing football.

Finally, Airbnb rolls out its largest campaign to date, urging travelers not go to Paris, L.A., New York, Tokyo and other destinations, but to "live there -- even if it's just for a night."
