Watch Last Night's New TV Ads From Nissan, Luvs and More

Plus, the Five Most Engaging Spots 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, Carl's Jr. offers up an interesting definition of the Mile High Club (Ad Age's ad critic Ken Wheaton previewed the spot and didn't exactly love it), while Starbucks celebrates coffeehouse culture in a charming new spot with the tagline "Meet Me at Starbucks" (Maureen Morrison has the backstory on the campaign). And Nissan invokes a child's imagination to show how its Safety Shield technologies can keep scary things at bay.
