Watch the Weekend's New TV Ads From AT&T, Chevrolet, Taco Bell 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 over the weekend. 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, Volkswagen show off the new Jetta TDI Clean Diesel (asking, once again, "Isn't it time for German engineering?"), while Chevrolet continues to brag about being "the first and only car company to bring built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi to cars, trucks and crossovers." And Taco Bell plops one of its unsuspecting customers down into an apocalyptic battle zone; the poor guy is expected to save the day, but all he really wants to do is finish his Quesarito Big Box.
