Wednesday Odds and Ends

By Patrick Coffee 

-It’s not really an ad, but as big rescue dog fans we have to post this “Where’s Waldo”-style mural documented by BBDO San Francisco. Whistle is the client.

-An unnamed art director in Atlanta started the “Fuck Typesetting” Instagram project in which people submit their versions of the word fuck in different types.

-How Is This a Thing: MillerCoors announced that AB InBev plans to release high-alcohol “Natty Rush,” which sounds a whole lot like Four Loko but without the … originality?

-Dentsu Aegis saw an 8.1% decline in its quarterly profits due to a lack of “specific business such as TV advertising for the qualifying games for the 2016 Summer Olympics.”

-Cramer Krasselt launched a campaign promoting free condoms, which it calls “naughty bags,” with a fake video game titled “PoppaStopper.” Get it?

-Toronto content agency Tite Group hired Lionel Wong, formerly with Huge and FCB, as its new VP/creative director.

-Commercial director Phil Brown, a former BBDO creative, signed with L.A.’s Spears & Arrows for representation.
