Wednesday Odds and Ends

By Erik Oster 

-Energy BBDO launched “Made for this Moment” for Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter and Cheese (video above).

-Poor Ryan Lochte has been reduced to promoting a “child safety device” called ROBOCOPP. This is not a joke.

-Creatives Megan Rascal and Mario Licato created some shirts reading “Abort Trump,” and they plan to donate all proceeds to Planned Parenthood.

-Authorities in Korea raided Cheil Worldwide offices yet again in a government “influence scandal” investigation.

-Channel 4 will launch the first ever interactive ads on British TV on Roku streaming devices later this month. 

-Dentsu acquired NYC multicultural agency Gravity Media for an undisclosed sum.

-Adweek examines “the proliferation of fake news on Google and Facebook” and what it might mean for advertisers. (SPOILER: very little.)
