Campaign Trail: Lagunitas keeps it weird with TV shopping network parody

Tapping into the branded merchandise trend while highlighting employees, the beer brand’s new cheeky video series promotes its IPAs moving to cans. Campaign Trail is our analysis of some of the best and worst new creative efforts from the marketing world. View past columns in the archives here. In classic Lagunitas fashion, the brand is keeping things weird with a recent campaign for its flagship IPA making its way to cans. A series of over-the-top videos riff on home shopping networks like QVC and highlight a real online store, the IPA Can Shopping Network, where loyal Lagunitas fans can buy branded merchandise. Goofy products like shuffleboard pucks and plant holders are made out of actual Lagunitas cans, while others are designed to look like the cans themselves, including a gym bag and “giant inflatable flappy thing.” By clicking on the case of beer — the featured product in the shop — users are directed to an interactive beer finder map to help them locate where the brew is sold based on their location. Traffic to the beer finder map is up 60% since the campaign launched in mid-November, while engagement with the creative assets has increased 34%, about se...

The forgotten story of ‘America’s most famous tool’

THE THINGS WE DISCOVER in basements we’d usually rather not. But the rusty old tools left behind by previous owners in the cabinets downstairs seemed like they might have a purpose. When my son got interested in carpentry, I decided to clean them up and give them to him. For a few weeks, my hobby became scouring the Internet for tips on how to restore old tools. I acquired brass brushes, steel wool, sandpaper, the fixings for vinegar baths. As the rust came off, words appeared — “Walworth,” “Trimont,” “Coes” — companies I’d never heard of, though they were based in Boston, Roxbury, and Worcester. Little did I know I was uncovering Boston’s essential role in bringing us that great, if underappreciated, pillar of modern life: indoor plumbing. A couple of the tools were labelled “Stillson.” “What’s a Stillson?” I asked myself. A little digging revealed not a what but a who — Daniel Stillson was an engineer at J.J. Walworth & Co., the Boston company that brought steam heating systems to the world in the 1840s. It had to create much of what it needed to build these systems, such as valves and fittings and radiators and, 150 years ago, Stillson’s pipe wrench. DANIEL STILLSON WAS ...

Green Christmas: How to have a sustainable festive season

The carpet is littered with paper and hoards of single-use plastic toys, many of which will have outlived their charm by the New Year. It seems personal efforts to reduce waste have never been greater with more of us switching to sustainable options like reusable bottles, beeswax food wraps and metal straws. But while awareness of environmental issues may be at an all-time high, the steady transformation of UK and Irish shoppers into sharing the consumer habits of the US shows no sign of slowing down. Black Friday this year saw UK shoppers spend more than ever – estimates by Barclaycard show an increase in spending of 16.5% on last year. Households in Northern Ireland last year threw away 231 tonnes of waste across the festive season, more than any other time of the year, according to Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful. The organisation’s Live Here Love Here manager, Jodie McAneaney, says despite the figures, she feels more people are trying to be sustainable in their everyday lives. “We started off calling it the David Attenborough effect but now even with people like Greta Thunberg – particularly this year there is more significant awareness of climate is...

Prosecutors ask for 7- to 10-year prison term for drain company owner convicted in trench collapse case

Prosecutors on Wednesday asked a Suffolk Superior Court judge to send a drain company owner to prison for seven to 10 years for failing to take safety precautions at a job site where a terrifying trench collapse killed two of his workers in Boston in 2016. The government requested the penalty for Kevin Lee Otto, 45, during an emotional sentencing hearing. His lawyer asked for probation or a suspended sentence, telling the court Otto “still continues to grieve” for his employees. Otto was convicted during an October bench trial of two counts of manslaughter and one count of witness intimidation stemming from the deaths of Kelvin Mattocks, 53, and Robert Higgins, 47. “This was not an accident, but a deliberate set of acts by Kevin Otto,” said Jennifer Lewis, Higgins’s sister, in remarks to the court. Otto, she said, could have protected his workers, but “he chose greed instead.” Judge Mitchell H. Kaplan listened to family statements and attorneys’ arguments before setting sentencing for 9 a.m. Thursday. He was at the job site on Dartmouth Street in the South End on the afternoon of Oct. 21, 2016, when a 14-foot trench quickly filled with water after a hydrant collapsed. Mattocks a...

Made in the USA: inside one company’s all-American supply chain 

Bayard Winthrop is angry. “Washington DC is just completely full of shit,” he tells me, recalling a meeting he had last year in the US capital with a group of senior politicians who wanted to understand how they could bring manufacturing back to America’s heartland.  Winthrop, the CEO and founder of American Giant, an upscale sports clothing company that produces its entire line in the US, is the sort of person who gets pulled into these conversations regularly. His company was launched in 2012 with a single product, a high-quality cotton hoodie, and has since become a poster child for the artisanal manufacturing now beloved of both politicians and millennial consumers.  Winthrop had hoped to have a deep policy discussion — about worker education and skills training, tax credits for investment and infrastructure — of the kind that could help him connect the dots in the parts of rural North Carolina where he does most of his sourcing.  Instead, it was a shallow interaction punctuated by backslapping between senators and advisers who “were all vacationing together in the Hamptons”, he says. “They wanted me to start a vocational training programme for the workers in my area, and I ...
