-H&M launched a spot subverting Tom Jones‘ 1971 hit “She’s A Lady” to promote its 2016 autumn collection (video above).

-McKinney protests North Carolina House Bill 2 (you know, the bigoted bathroom one) with “Boycott Band — The Countdown.”

-Framingham, Massachusetts agency CommCreative moved into a new building. We assume it is a nice-looking building since the press release describes it as both “fully renovated” and “historic.”


-ContagiousLA added Daniele Anastasion to its directorial roster for exclusive representation on spots and branded content projects. 

-Moondog Edit added senior editor Cristina Rackoff.

Creative studio Carbon welcomed creative director John Price to its Los Angeles office

-Los Angeles commercial production company Nonfiction Unlimited added Jason Benjamin to its directorial roster

Haberman of Minneapolis hired Emalie Wichmann, formerly with Olson and UnitedHealthcare, as its newest associate creative director.
