By Patrick Coffee 

-Is Brunner’s immigration-themed 84 Lumber Super Bowl ad a legitimate controversy or a PR stunt?

-An R/GA creative is posting fliers for political discussions between liberals and conservatives in Brooklyn. Park Slope’s 11 registered Republicans have yet to respond.

-adam&eveDDB CMO and co-founder John Forsyth will be leaving the agency.

The Gunn Report named BBDO its most-awarded agency in the world for, like, the 500th time. W+K won for the U.S.

-Why is the Super Bowl the only time Americans actually want to watch ads?

-Mediavest | Spark president Brian Terkelsen resigned today, but it wasn’t because his agency lost the $600 million Honda account to RPA.

Gap’s new ad stars the children of its old-school models, makes us want to listen to some Sonic Youth.

-Some brands like Kinda Bar are reconsidering their plans to make fun of the POTUS.
