Tuesday Morning Stir

By Erik Oster 

-We don’t know what this M&C Saatchi work for the U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority is advertising, exactly. But Arnold doesn’t seem like his old self.

-P&G is not messing around this time, you guys.

-NFL stars Richard Sherman and Clay Matthews keep it deadpan in a new “Put a Smile on Your Snackface” Wonderful Pistachios campaign about chronic losers from in-house Wonderful Agency.


-Does anyone actually like procurement? Serious question.

-The New York Daily News was sold to Tronc for one dollar. RIP, print advertising.

-Digital is doing just fine, though. One Tom(my) Goodwin just scored himself a gig at The Drum, and here’s his first column about how it’s all the rage now.

-The Drum asks W+K CCO Susan Hoffman ten questions.

-Can you imagine a creative agency getting abandoned by investors and major trade groups for working on a campaign designed “to stir up racial tensions?” That’s what just happened to global PR firm Bell Pottinger.

-Agency Mr. Glasses and Showtime Marketing are creeping out Aussies with an OOH campaign promoting the September 7 release of IT.
