Thursday Odds and Ends

By Erik Oster 

-Poo-Pourri launched the first spot from its new online film production studio, Number 2 Productions, entitled “How to Poop at a Party” (video above).

-Cramer-Krasselt and Carowinds explore 50 years of Charlie Brown’s Halloween special as told by a bunch of kids.

-New Trump ads target minority and female business owners. For some reason he’s been having trouble with those demographics.

-Why did McDonald’s U.K. YouTube channel fail? Because it couldn’t generate enough earned media.

-We don’t really know what a “VR web browser” is, but it probably will make a lot more¬†money for¬†Facebook some day.

-Advertising isn’t the only “boys’ club” around. Venture capital apparently has the same problem.

-IPG launched a new healthcare-focused media agency called Healix, which sounds like a character from the Matrix.
