Thursday Odds and Ends

By Erik Oster 

-TGI Friday’s appointed The Richards Group as its agency of record for the second time. The agency’s first work for the brand centers around its Endless Apps, not a permanent menu fixture (video above).

-A spokesperson confirmed that CP+B Boulder “adjusted a small amount of staffing” this week while “continuing to add key creative, strategic and innovation positions.”

-If there’s one thing the world needs right now, it’s Zima. At least MillerCoors hopes so.

George Tanenbaum thinks these times are “the golden age of bullshit.” Wasn’t this always the case, though?

-Speaking of bullshit, Bob “Ad Contrarian” Hoffman doesn’t believe your numbers about how many consumers research products before buying them.

-Orvis, “the premier outfitter of outdoor adventures,” tapped New York-based creative agency Hyperbolous to join its roster alongside Washington DC-based digital shop Chong + Koster. 

-Are you under 30? Do you want to go to France for free? Then register for the Cannes Young Lions, dummy!

-There’s a reason Donald Trump‘s face keeps showing up in the Taboola trash links at the bottom of every webpage.
