Friday Stir

By Kyle O'Brien 

-Happy Holidays from AgencySpy! Today’s Stir is filled with holiday fun. Enjoy, and have a great holiday season. We’ll see you next year.

-Opendoor, an ecommerce platform for residential real estate, and its agency partner Venables Bell + Partners, are getting into the holiday spirit with an edible home sale sign. Instead of a traditional “For Sale” signpost, this sign is an elaborate light display made entirely out of gingerbread with meticulously crafted icing, making it both functional but also entirely edible. The company is also handing out miniature gingerbread signs and hot cocoa to all its visitors.


-This holiday season, Uber Eats is partnering with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products on an exclusive limited-edition holiday trunk perfect for all families and Wizarding World fans alike. The “Wizarding World Holiday Trunk” leans into Uber Eats’ reputation for delivering cultural surprises. It is built around one of the iconic elements of the Harry Potter series, the trunk Hogwarts students use to transport their valuables from Platform 9 ¾ to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

-Still having a difficult time finding that special gift for someone you really don’t like. Agency Unusual has launched, featuring 20 different gifts for that POS in your life. The marketplace has items like a baby bib that says “Call child protective services” and a shipping box with the word “Porn” on it. It even has an “Asshole Database” with crappy people and their addresses, like Vladimir Putin and the NRA.

-For its annual holiday greeting, agency Brunner tapped into artificial intelligence and came up with Brunner’s 12 Days of Christmas Movies We’d Love to Make. Brunner used Midjourney and Dall-E 2 to generate the images based on prompts and came up with gems including “The Cookie That Could” and “Pout and Find Out.”

-The “Gnome for the Holidays” campaign for the Vermont Lottery from Fuseideas follows the Lottery Gnome on a journey to be reunited with friends and family.

-Fuse Create helped design a charcuterie board game for Toronto luxury catering company Olive & Fig.
