Thursday Morning Stir

By Erik Oster 

-Arthur London launched this animated “Together Again” spot thanking nurses caring for those with dementia for Dementia U.K. (video above).

-Havas London won an unspecified portion of the Kraft Heinz account without a review.

-Meanwhile, adam&eveDDB lost the Harvey Nichols account despite years of great work. Karma is not a real thing.


-After reading this account of OMD and Accenture execs’ experiences at SXSW, we are sooooooo sorry we didn’t go again this year.

-Now watch Adweek’s video account of all those super awesome activations for some shameless self-promotion. (We don’t really get why Viceland loves baby goats.)

-Or, if you want to get REALLY mad this morning, read Kendall Jenner’s poor little rich girl story about the infamous Pepsi ad: “You can never really prepare for something like that.”

-Speaking of rich folks: you already heard about Sir Martin’s pay cut, didn’t you?

-More About Advertising wonders whether Unilever’s move to Rotterdam from London is an ominous sign of… something.

-Amazon is finally returning media agencies’ calls while Bezos plays it cool.
