Jose Cuervo mixes a margarita in space

On National Margarita Day last weekend, tequila-maker Jose Cuervo took the humble margarita to new heights -- literally. The brand partnered with McCann and a team of rocket scientists to launch a container full of margarita fixins into space, where the drink was shaken and frozen. When the capsule reached its apex at 100,000 feet, the weather balloons that were carrying the capsule burst and the frosty beverage parachuted back to earth. "Other brands have sent stuff into space, but we had a much better reason to do it -- to literally freeze a margarita,” Tom Murphy, chief creative officer at McCann New York, told Digiday.

Sonic taps millennials’ love of nostalgia

One of Sonic Drive-In's big differentiators is its classic drive-through concept, a nostalgia play that appeals to millennials. But, at the same time, it needs to combine that with cutting-edge tech and a smart social strategy.

Pinterest’s new monetization rules inflict pain on ‘pinfluencers’

Pinterest's ban on affiliate and redirect links has decreased revenue for power users who make money pinning images on behalf of major brands. Many of these "pinfluencers" rely on this activity as their sole source of income, and they have already seen a significant drop in revenue. The decision comes as Pinterest is pushing brands to use its ads, which are generally more expensive than working directly with influencers.
