  • William Shatner robs a bank when he should be trading cryptocurrency with Blockchain.com
    William Shatner is a pretty recognizable guy, both in face and voice, so the thought of him robbing a bank is fairly absurd. Which is one reason why Blockchain.com chose the Star Trek and TJ Hooker star to humorously promote its new cryptocurrency exchange, called The Pit. Blockchain.com, a provider of cryptocurrency products, including a crypto wallet, has launched a global campaign to promote the Pit, which it claims is the fastest exchange of its kind the world. A video starring Shatner is the centerpiece of the campaign, which takes aim at the poor user experiences some may have using ... read more

  • Aaron Kwittken: Vote for Rapinoe
    In most circumstances, I personally don’t love it when athletes use their celebrity to tout political or social issues. I was initially quite unimpressed – maybe even a bit annoyed – with U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) co-captain Megan Rapinoe’s antics ahead of playing the Netherlands and I took a firm stance against her in my Forbes column. Clearly, I hit a nerve as the piece received a record number of views for me, second only to a snarky piece I did on Piers Morgan a few years back.  I still stand by that Piers piece. I was critical ... read more

  • Aline Santos: ASA gender ruling debate shows we must unite to 'unstereotype' advertising
    The ASA’s decision to ban two ads in the UK for perpetuating gender stereotypes has caused much debate in the industry. It has sparked calls for a clearer definition of what is “harmful” and questions about whether the new rules “have gone too far.” The ads from Philadelphia and Buxton, were the first to fall foul of the watchdog's new guidelines around perpetuating gender stereotypes, were banned for featuring "bumbling" dads and "passive" women. Any significant changes that challenge the status quo will take more time, more examples, and more debate to get to a place where we can agree ... read more

  • Why it's time to reinvent the marketing function
    It should come as no surprise that some of the world’s most successful companies are abolishing the role of chief marketing officer (CMOs). Advertising, or at least traditional advertising, has historically been the core tool that CMOs use for marketing a company's products or services. Yet it has been on the wane ever since the internet came along and turned everything on its head. For example, two years ago The Coca-Cola Company, one of the world’s most iconic brands, scrapped its CMO role. It was the first time since 1993 that it had operated without one. Now, as Ad Age reported, only 70% of Fortune 500 ... read more
