-Art director Max Cohen and copywriter Lorran Schoechet created an ad agency name generator fit to amuse you for at least 30 seconds.

-DDB creative technology officer Alexander Rea also created Dirty Ten Letter Word, a word-salad generator we just discovered, for a 2017 Tom Goodwin event. Exploit end-to-end networks!!

-ICYMI, former Droga5 CEO Andrew Essex is bringing even more lights and ads into Times Square via a project called TSX Broadway.

-Amtrak picked a WPP team made up of Y&R, Mediacom, Wunderman and Culture ONE World as its new AOR after a review.

-BrewDog promises to drop the shock marketing tricks and focus more on the beer. Likely story.
