-What if you could win the lottery not just once but every year for life? That’s what happens when players win the Florida Lottery’s Year for Life game. To promote the game, a new campaign from longtime agency of record, PPK, gets humorous mileage from very literal use of the word “literally,” taking place in a bowling alley. The campaign will also feature a live-streamed game show called “Literally, The Game Show,” which will explore the fun world of idioms, colloquialisms and figures of speech.

-Cotton Incorporated has confirmed that it is conducting a closed review of its creative advertising account.
