T-Mobile Made A New AT&T Attack Ad [THE BRIEF]

Good morning, AdLand. Here’s what you need to know today:

T-Mobile just released an ad during yesterday’s NBA Playoffs that pits the company directly against AT&T. Instead of T-Mobile girl-in-pink-turned-biker-babe Carly Foulkes starring in the spot, Dr. Frankenstein takes the lead. Publicis Seattle and Riney made the spot. What do you think?

Twitter strikes up a deal with Publicis’ Starcom MediaVest Group, which means that will probably open the door to working with Procter&Gamble, Walmart, Samsung, and Coca-Cola.

RPA and Tools made a terrifying ad for the Newport Beach Film Festival about a sadistic dentist.

Branding strategist Crystal Bennett looks at what happens when brands come out of the closet about gay rights.

ThingLink, a new startup, just partnered up with Facebook to make content even more interactive.

VIA hired a bunch of new people to it shop including associate creative director David Grindon (from The Martin Agency), copywriter Dan Jordan (from EnergyBBDO), Barry Wolford (DirecTV), and strategist Whitman Bowers (Anomaly).

CP+B also hired a ton of people for its LA office.
