Monday Morning Stir

By Patrick Coffee 

-The answer to “Are you gonna bingo?” is always yes in The&Partnership’s new extended spot for Sun Bingo.

-The latest brands to end their partnerships with the NRA are Avis and MetLife.

-Our favorite thing about the NRA’s own statement calling such moves “a shameful display of political and civic cowardice” is that they picked a shot of midtown Manhattan for the post. We wonder what message they were trying to send…

-In news from across the pond, what is GDPR and why should we care? Glad you asked!

-Michelob Light goes organic, because that’s definitely the way to win the beer wars.

-In his latest column for The Drum, Andrew Boulton argues that sitting at your desk all day every day makes for stale copywriting. (Big fan of the open office, we take it.)

-More About Advertising argues that Droga5’s biggest wave of layoffs last week came as a “shock” to the New York agency world. Perhaps in a “join the club” sort of way?

-Goshen, NY-based Focus Media won media AOR duties for Camelback Resorts and The Kartrite Hotel & Indoor Waterpark.
