Friday Stir

By Doug Zanger 

-Some more weird and wacky from Old Spice and Wieden + Kennedy. This time, a video-game-meets-auto-racing motif starring Keiynan Lonsdale (Love, Simon, The Flash, The Divergent Series). He gets a whiff of the brand’s Dynasty deodorant, and away he goes.

-Home Depot, formerly of The Richards Group, has a new media AOR in OMD. And it looks like BBDO and Leo Burnett are the last two standing for creative for the retailer.

Dentsu believes that ad spend is on the rise, with 50% coming from digital.

-The GameStop stuff may only be the beginning. And Google robin-hooded Robinhood by deleting 100,000 negative reviews about the app.

AOC smartly gets on Twitch to talk about GameStop and Robinhood.

The Drum amps up its eyewear diversity with some new hires.

-People did not like Anchor Brewing’s new label design.

Another Gary Vee sighting!
