On the Adweek Podcast: Tim and Angela’s Favorite Ads of the Week

Plus, how we feel about "friendly" cease-and-desist letters

Inventive preroll ads from Ikea. One of the best anti-drug ads we’ve seen. The latest work from storied German creative advertiser Hornbach. And one American city’s contrarian approach to Amazon’s HQ2.

This week on the Adweek podcast, I chatted with Adweek contributor Angela Natividad all about our favorite ads of the week.

And we also touched on the new trend of companies sending “friendly” cease-and-desist letters in cases of alleged trademark infringement—using legal departments as an extension of the marketing group. Netflix began the trend in September, but some new examples last week had us wondering if it’s always a wise idea.
