Every weekday, we bring you the Ad Age/iSpot Hot Spots, new TV commercials tracked by iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company with attention and conversion analytics from more than seven million smart TVs. The ads here ran on national TV for the first time yesterday.
A few highlights: The New York Times calls attention to its reporting on women facing oppression around the world in an ad timed to International Women's Day (Creativity Editor Ann-Christine Diaz has the backstory on the campaign and a related project here.) Game maker King serves up two surreal spotsincluding one that features a cop riding a unicornthat hype Candy Crush.
