Songs For Screens: Fiat Chrysler Cmo Explains How Music Turbocharges Their Ad Campaigns

  • Variety
Songs For Screens is a Variety column sponsored by music experiential agency Mac Presents, based in NYC. It is written by Andrew Hampp, founder of music marketing consultancy 1803 LLC and former correspondent for Billboard. Each week, the column will highlight noteworthy use of music in advertising and marketing campaigns, as well as new and catalog songs that we deem ripe for synch use.

Olivier Francois, chief marketing officer of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has engineered some of the most memorable music moments from car commercials over the past decade.

His greatest hits include Chrysler’s iconic 2011 Super Bowl spot featuring Eminem and his signature hit “Lose Yourself” to Jeep’s 2015 “Renegades” campaign, which put the relatively unknown X Ambassadors on the map, to this year’s Ram 1500 Trucks Super Bowl commercial that licensed Queen’s lesser-known hard-rock version of “We Will Rock You.” Francois has been known to swing his bat

Here’s an Awesome Video of Barack Obama Playing Santa Claus

It’s pretty cool to see the former president still being a man of the people no matter what some care to say about him. Barack Obama playing Santa Claus at a Boys and Girls club in Washington is indeed something special to witness since it gives people a lot of pride in their former president and a great gift aside from whatever’s in the bag. I think it goes without saying that you probably wouldn’t find Trump being quite this friendly or letting a moment like this go without saying something extremely insensitive or crude to mar the moment just

The Werewolf of Washington Heights!

The Werewolf of Washington Heights Written by Christie Perfetti Williams Directed by Charmaine Broad Presented by Carnival Girls Productions at The Kraine Theater, NYC October 11-22, 2017

Many readers these days probably know the feeling of anxiety about what appallingly reactionary new story will leap out at them every time that they set eyes or ears on a news source. To take just the latest in an interminable series of examples, as this review is being written, the head of the U.S. government is threatening to end aid to Puerto Rico, whose American citizens are denied governmental representation, a mere three weeks after an incredibly devastating natural disaster. As it happens, the production of Christie Perfetti Williams' new play, The Werewolf of Washington Heights, will donate one dollar of every online ticket sale to The Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico. It also focuses on the political effects (keeping

Will & Grace Recap: The Other Man
You’d think that a cancer scare would have to be the worst part of anyone’s day. But that just isn’t how Grace Adler rolls. So in Thursday’s Will & Grace, her unnerving trip to the gynecologist was overshadowed by an unexpected reunion with ex-husband Leo (Harry Connick Jr.) that was so fraught, it left her eating strawberry ice cream with chicken satay for a spoon!

It all started going downhill for Grace when she got so dolled up for her doctor’s appointment that Jack quipped, “If I was straight, I’d stare at you like a

Robert Downey Jr. Warns Fans of Online Imposters Scamming Cash

Robert Downey Jr. Warns Fans of Online Imposters Scamming Cash
Robert Downey Jr. took to social media this morning to warn fans of potential scam artists impersonating him in order to steal money through fake charities. Unfortunately, celebrity impersonators try to scam people out of their hard-earned money every day and the internet has made it 1,000 times easier to do. Last year, many fans of huge country music artists started to get personal messages from the "artists" themselves starting conversations and then sharing that they needed someone dependable to pay for the delivery of top-secret briefcase that contained thousands of dollars and concert tickets. Robert Downey Jr. didn't reveal what type of scam was being applied under his name, probably to avoid bringing attention to the problem.

Downey Jr. is constantly raising money for charities that are close to the actor, so it makes sense that some scumbags would utilize the actor's good deeds to turn them into a scam

The week in TV: No More Boys and Girls: Can Kids Go Gender Free?; The Big Family Cooking Showdown and more

A documentary about gender and the Beeb’s Bake Off wannabe weren’t quite as described on the tin. But Valkyrien zipped along furiously

The Big Family Cooking Showdown (BBC2) | iPlayer

Valkyrien (C4) | All 4

Pointlessly unwieldy title of the week – against, as we shall come to see, some stiff competition – was No More Boys and Girls: Can Kids Go Gender Free? Managing to combine foot-in-mouth length and borderline dystopian threats with that irreducibly twee ‘kids’, it turned out to encompass nothing more sinister than an exploration of simple equality: the first of a rather splendid two-parter in which Dr Javed Abdelmoneim aided by some impossibly sunny children and teachers on the Isle of Wight, sought simply to address the balance in expectations among seven-year-olds, depending on whether they’re a boy or a girl.

No More Boys and Girls: Can Kids Go Gender Free? review – reasons to start treating children equally

Critics called it shocking and harmful, but BBC2’s gentle documentary shows us the major impact of unconscious sexism at school

No More Boys and Girls: Can Kids Go Gender Free? (BBC2) caused a minor controversy before it aired, labelled “shocking” and “bold” by some reports, and even “potentially very harmful” by Grassroots Conservatives’ reliably facile Mary Douglas. This is not surprising. Such is the frenzy and hysteria about trans lives right now – particularly from otherwise sensible and compassionate people who have a blind spot when it comes to empathising with transgender people – that “gender-free” invokes a ridiculous bogeyman image of, say, experimental Scandinavian neutrality where saying “boy” or “girl” is forbidden, or pre-puberty hormone-blockers being forced upon girls who are tomboys. It is transparently a disproportionate and irrational fear, yet it’s little wonder that a show that promises to discuss gender with a classroom full of seven-year-olds has stoked these paranoid flames.

All About Jared Kushner’s Jewish Faith and Holocaust-Survivor Grandparents as He’s Slammed for Silence on Charlottesville

All About Jared Kushner’s Jewish Faith and Holocaust-Survivor Grandparents as He’s Slammed for Silence on Charlottesville
Jared Kushner‘s Jewish faith is back in the spotlight as his father-in-law, Donald Trump, faces widespread backlash over his refusal to unequivocally condemn white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Kkk for the deadly violence that engulfed Charlottesville, Virginia, during a white nationalist rally over the weekend.

The president’s daughter and advisor, Ivanka Trump — who converted to Judaism before marrying Kusher, an Orthodox Jew, in 2009 — tweeted after the events in Charlottesville, “There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis.”

But Kushner, 36, a former real-estate developer and newspaper publisher who is also a senior advisor to the president,
