Watch Last Night's New TV Ads From BMW, Samsung, Kmart and More

Plus, a Nissan Pathfinder Serves as a Sort of Noah's Ark

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 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, the Kool-Aid Man tries not to freak a woman out in a spot that Creativity recently previewed and made an Editor's Pick, a Nissan Pathfinder doubles as a sort of Noah's Ark, Kmart serves up a striptease on a beach, and Samsung -- which Ad Age's Mark Bergen and Alexandra Bruell just reported is readying for a global review -- runs down all the ways the Galaxy S5 is superior to its competition.
