From Conan O’Brien’s fun campaign that mocks an old iPod ad to the powerful women reigning on Netflix, Daily Brief ran a wide range of spots in September.

Out of many great examples of TV marketing, here are the top five Hot Spots that saw the most views last month.

1. Conan’s Not So Sure Apple AirPods Are the Best Idea

TBS’ Conan took a trip down memory lane after Apple announced its latest innovation: AirPods wireless earbuds. The spot goes back a decade to a fun campaign for the iPod that featured dancing silhouettes. AirPods, however, are making life a little hard for these characters.

2. Netflix ‘She Rules’

From its upcoming The Crown to Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and more, Netflix emphasizes the strong, female characters that populate its original series in this brand spot.

3. Oxygen ‘Struts’ Its Stuff

Executive produced by Whoopi Goldberg, this new series follows a group of transgender models hoping to make it big in the cut-throat world of high fashion.

4. Viasat History’s ‘Empire of the Tsars’

Three hundred years of Russian royal history in one epic family portrait.

5. Anthony Bourdain Enjoys Noodles in Vietnam with President Obama

Designed by Stun Creative and Buster, promotional messages pop up among city signage in this promo for the season opener of CNN’s Parts Unknown.
