LIDL’S AD INSULTS WOMEN IN SERBIA
German retailer Lidl is facing a storm of public criticism in Serbia after their Perfect Couple campaign launched announcing the opening of its first store in the country.
President of the Coordination Body for Gender Equality and Vice Prime Minister of Serbia Zorana Mihajlović criticized Lidl for the ad that, as she said, “shows women as low price, and men as high quality”, adding “it does not carry a good message to citizens, and especially not to women of Serbia.”
The company Lidl stated that linking any of the characters to a single attribute was not their intention, and that the idea for that campaign came from the grammar of Serbian language, in which the word quality is masculine in gender, and the word price is feminine.

FORD NAMES OMNICOM’S BBDO AS LEAD CREATIVE AGENCY
Ford has selected Omnicom’s BBDO as its lead creative agency in a blow to WPP, which was confident of defending the review.
The carmaker has also brought in Wieden+Kennedy for innovation, following its work with the company earlier this year. The agency had worked on its most recent US marketing campaign in what was considered an early sign that Ford was looking to shake-up its creative output.
Ford has also committed to 100 in-house marketing jobs as part of its new agency model.
The refreshed set-up follows a review that kicked off in April. WPP had previously held the entire Ford business in a multi-agency effort named ‘Global Team Blue’.
FACEBOOK PUSHES INTO SMART HOME SPACE WITH PORTAL – A CAMERA-EQUIPPED SPEAKER
Facebook is upping the ante against Amazon and Google with the launch of Portal, a smart speaker and display product that’s been designed with video calls in mind.
Portal is powered by an AI camera that “stays with the action” and automatically zooms to keep people in the frame. Facebook is pitching it as a device that will make Messenger video calls easier and “more like hanging out”.
While the long-anticipated product could eventually open up fresh display advertising revenue streams for Facebook, its launch comes in the aftermath of the social network’s biggest ever data breach and amid growing concerns around user privacy.
Portal is similar to Amazon’s Echo Show. It comes equipped with a camera and a microphone. These features have raised some eyebrows, given that Facebook revealed two weeks ago the data of at least 50 million users had been compromised due to vulnerabilities in its own system.
