Friday Odds and Ends

By Erik Oster 

-Viral video agency Thinkmodo launched this “JerkyBot” spot for jerky brand Chef’s Cut starring Red Sox slugger David Ortiz (video above). The “autonomous, flying snack tray,” sadly, is not real.

-Digiday explains Facebook’s video metric screw-up for those who still don’t get it.

-Agency Carolyn London and Michael Vadino launched their new operation London in New York with a campaign for the Metropolitan Opera


-Clorox CMO Eric Reynolds says, “We are too slow, and we are trying very hard to move faster.”

-The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (CATS) has plans to replace ads with pictures of cats in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Barcelona and Cape Town.

-The transparency thing is a real deal that led JP Morgan Chase to “halt its ad spend,” as the British might say.

-Norwegian Air is certainly quick to the punch.

-Finally, K-Y has released something called “duration spray,” and we clicked on it, fuck everything forever.
