Tuesday Odds and Ends

By Erik Oster 

-DNA Seattle were late to the holiday ad party with this “We Make It Easy” spot for Nordstrom (video above).

-Qdoba’s agency of record Mistress took queso-praising tweets and turned them into 5-10 second animated GIFs. A few posts bashing a certain competitor may have snuck in there, too. Mistress creative partner Scott Harris said “rather than bragging about Qdoba’s 3-Cheese Queso, we’re letting the people who love it most speak for themselves.”

-Four employees from Zambezi launched Rotten Apples, which lets users search movies and shows to find out if any cast or crew members have sexual misconduct allegations against them.


-Accenture Interactive took a break from buying agencies to win an assignment from the Vatican.

-Adweek rounds up the year’s agency holiday cards.

-Republica of Miami has been named global strategic agency for Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, the Azamara Pursuit.

-How will Cannes change next year? Take it away, Simon Cook.

-Campaign asks “Who has the best agency Christmas card this year?” while we wonder who has the worst.
