Thursday Odds and Ends

By Patrick Coffee 

-Hollywood agency Battery and client Skyrocket are trying to make drones great again with the SkyViper model.

-Boomerang videos are soooo lame. But Dallas agency The Shop has a whole account dedicated to Fake Boomerangs, which are more fun?

-Are you ready for 6 second ads? Whoops, they’re already over.


-Fashion-focused New York agency Laird + Partners hired Gustaf Törling as VP, executive creative director. This dude plays a mean guitar.

-Ogilvy Japan created a (desktop-only) experience for fans of client Sony’s metal band Crossfaith. As Quiet Riot put it, BANG YOUR HEAD.

-Prod co DECON hired Mike Lobikis of Tool as head of strategy and development.

-Retail may be dying, but Macy’s hopes its new marketing strategy can drive a comeback with the help of Figliulo & Partners and BBH New York.
