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...

Oh, you still charge your phone by plugging it into the wall each night? That’s . . . cute. One of the best things about the new iPhone is its wireless charging capability. Powered by Qi technology, it transfers energy from the coils in one device to similar coils in your phone.  But the best thing about wireless charging? You don’t need to know how it works. All you need to do is place your iPhone on a compatible charger and wander away. No cords, no fuss.  There are a lot of chargers out there that do multiple things—they charge your phone, your watch, your earbuds. They often have an extra USB port out the back. They light up, don’t light up, light up in patterns—the point being they’re needlessly complicated. This 7.5-watt Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad does one thing. You put your phone on it and it charges that device. The most complicated thing about it? Deciding...

The average American purportedly has more trust in Amazon than their own government, which makes recent

The average American purportedly has more trust in Amazon than their own government, which makes recent reports on thousands of potentially unsafe products making their way onto the company’s online marketplace particularly terrifying. More than 4,100 products available on the site—everything from motorcycle helmets to children’s toys—were “declared unsafe by federal agencies, are deceptively labeled or are banned by federal regulators” according to an investigation by the Wall Street Journal last week. On Friday, Wired similarly reported that several of the top-selling listings for signal boosters on Amazon lacked federal certification, which is kind of important for a device that has the potential to seriously mess with nearby cell towers. Gizmodo reached out to Amazon and will update this article with the company’s response. Just to give you a snapshot of how pervasive Amazon’s issue is, in a roughly four-month period, the Journal found: Wired also found several cell phone signal boosters being sold for $100 less than their FCC-certified counterparts on Amazon. Some even featured an “Amazon’s Choice” badge, a company recommendation for “highly rated, well-priced products” acc...
