Are You Thinking About Switching to Samsung, Like Lance? (Watch the Newest Ads on TV)

Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots on TV 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, a bunch of kids frolic adorably in ultra-affordable clothing from H&M ("mix & match kids' t-shirts + pants = $9.95") while the humble potato is celebrated by Kraft Mayo (much like the radish and lettuce before it). And Best Buy introduces us to a guy named Lance who is thinking of switching to Samsung (from, presumably, an Apple iPhone); it's a plug for Best Buy's Samsung Experience store-within-a-store.
