Jack in the Box’s mystery, New Coke’s revival and Dressbarn’s downfall: Wednesday Wake-Up Call

Welcome to Ad Age’s Wake-Up Call, our daily roundup of advertising, marketing, media and digital news. You can get an audio version of this briefing on your Alexa device; sign up here.

Pronto!” Whatever the complaint was, the fast food brand followed up, Kardashian West said thanks, and now everything’s apparently fine. (Although other fast food brands poked fun at Jack in the Box over this. Including Wendy’s, which tweeted, “but like, who even goes there?”) So … is there any chance Kardashian West’s mystery complaint was actually a marketing stunt in disguise?

Now “the beverage giant is celebrating its mistake in a partnership with Netflix’s sci-fi thriller ‘Stranger Things,’” which is set in the 1980s, Jeanine... Continue reading at 'Advertising Age'
