Friday Odds and Ends

By Patrick Coffee 

-Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a (regional) Super Bowl ad promoting labor unions via Olson Engage and Elevate Minnesota.

-Allen & Gerritsen, with offices in Boston and Philadelphia, is perfectly divided over Superb Owl LII. Now watch them try to imitate one another’s funny accents!

-Leo Burnett global president and CEO Rich Stoddart is leaving the agency, with Mark Tutssel moving into a global chairman role while continuing to serve as global CCO.

-AdAge took a look into the anonymous, now-famous Instagram account Diet Madison Avenue. You will NOT be shocked to learn that agency executives have very mixed feelings.

-Exclusively in The Drum: Seattle’s eclectic agency Wexley School for Girls will close this spring after 15 years in business.

-Agencies think Instagram Stories’ new carousel ads are going to be “huge.” Their words.

-For something totally unrelated to the Super Bowl, Lyft and Pennsylvania agency Deep Local got some cars to play the year’s top Grammy hits last week in a bumpin’ activation.
