By Patrick Coffee 

-L.A.’s Battery created this spot for Netflix’s new Chris Rock stand-up special Tambourine, which we are totally going to watch over the long weekend.

-The dudes from licensing company Musicbed claim Droga5 sent them a cease and desist order upon learning about plans to place an ad targeting him outside the agency’s officer. Gerry Graf “wrote an endearing message on his Facebook page.”

-Oh look, we were right: Eastport Holdings did indeed acquire Columbus, Ohio agency Fahlrgren Mortine for an undisclosed sum. Where will they go from here, given that Eastport also owns Columbus-based SBC Advertising?

-Figliulo&Partners made another “apples to apples” spot trolling the #fakenews crowd for CNN.

-More About Advertising wonders whether it’s restructuring time for Sir Martin.

-The Drum talked to some of the top female executives at New York shops about how one Don Draper might respond to today’s more gender-balanced agency C-suites. (But yes, we still have a long way to go.)

-iProspect appointed Belle Lenz as its U.S. chief marketing officer and Joel Grossman as its first-ever chief technology officer.
