Welcome to the latest edition of Marketer's Brief, a quick take on marketing news, moves and trends from Ad Age's reporters and editors. Send tips/suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The midterm election, and all of those ads, are behind us. Maybe some of you who spent a long time waiting to cast your votes yesterday got free pizza along with that sticker or bracelet you posted on social media. Or perhaps you passed the time playing Fortnite with an NFL-clad character, or getting a jump on your holiday shopping. This week's Brief has all that plus a new role for the former Toys R Us CMO and a "Queer Eye" guy's new food deal.
First, brace yourself to see Santa in the bathroom.
