Watch Last Night's Brand-New TV Ads from Budweiser, Oscar Mayer and More

Plus, MMA Champ Chuck Liddell Hard-Sells AutoZone's House-Brand Car Battery

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 commercials, McDonald's wants to make absolutely sure you're aware of its current breakfast promo (see McD's previous ad in this series in yesterday's batch of Hot Spots, and Ad Age's full report on the free-coffee blitz here), Chuck Liddell shows just how tough he and AutoZone's Duralast car batteries are, and Budweiser invokes Babe Ruth and baseball history to make you thirsty. Plus, here's some background on the grouchy grandpa in the "One Liners" spot: "Oscar Mayer Plugs New 'Bold' Flavors By Attacking Deli Case."
