    With Super Bowl LII fast approaching, there's no doubt that creatives have been putting their heads together to come up with what they hope will be the year's most talked-about Super Bowl commercial.

    Mark Zuckerberg recently shared that Facebook is revamping the news feed to prioritize content from friends over content from brands, businesses and publishers. Facebook's stock price dropped 5 percent immediately following the announcement. This change should not be taken lightly.

    Dieste's got your new Jam! We're referring to the computer-generated star of the agency's unconventional push for nonprofit Dallas Pets Alive.

    For the athletes involved, the two major sports events occurring over the next few weeks--Super Bowl LII and the 2018 Winter Olympics--represent the culmination of years of training, laser-focus and pushing oneself to the limit, all in pursuit of breaking records and coming out on top. The same goes for the NBC Sports ad sales...

    Call it the Nordstrom versus Amazon problem. Stores like Nordstrom excel at "white-glove service." Its staff may recognize your face and even greet you by name as they direct you throughout the store. However, they probably don't know what you bought last month or what's still sitting in your online shopping cart. Sites like Amazon,...

    If you were watching the Grammy Awards a few minutes ago, you saw an Old Spice ad that was very weird indeed, even for the notoriously quirky Procter & Gamble brand. The 60-second spot was entirely in French, and there were no subtitles. This made the plot very cryptic for non-French speakers. All we could...
