-Deutsch hired Jorge Calleja as executive vice president, executive creative director out of its Los Angeles office, tasked with handling the agency’s Uber account.

-Adidas sent a marketing email congratulating people for “surviving the Boston Marathon” and created some very bad PR for itself.

-Miami Ad School students Ben Brown and Jackie Moran found a pretty creepy way to appeal to Droga5’s creative coordinator Chloe Harlig in an attempt to land internships.

-Post-production company Edit 1 hired Ken Kresge as vice president, creative director/editor.

-TBWA\Dublin appointed Andrew Murray as director of social media and content.

-Toronto-based production company The Corner Store added Greg Popp to its directorial roster for Canadian commercial representation.

-A Spanish language site argues (convincingly) that Carhartt’s new anthem spot directly rips off Burberry’s 2016 short film.
