Blagger's Blog- Blank cheques, sounds of war, everything on Fyre
Although this advert isn’t new, it’s new to us (originally unveiled back in April). The David Lynch Foundation offers a startling portrait of life after war for veterans, told through battlefield sounds. Or not, as the case may be. Powerful, impressive.

As we blogged about yesterday, Fyre Festival in the Bahamas went from bad to wrong to unmitigated disaster, but the real story for us is how the event used influencer marketing in the worst possible way- handing out ‘benefits’ to hype-makers when the product itself was evidently doomed to fail. Hence the lawsuit filed this week.
