U.K. Supreme Court to issue Brexit decision next week
Britain's Supreme Court will issue its decision Jan. 24 on whether the U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May must consult the country's parliament on her plans for Brexit. Its judges have been weighing arguments in the U.K. government's appeal against a High Court ruling that it doesn't have the right to unilaterally invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would begin formal talks for the U.K. to withdraw from the European Union. On Tuesday, May laid out her plan for Brexit, which she said would be put to the vote in both Houses of Parliament. The Supreme Court will hand down its decision on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. London time, or 4:30 a.m. Eastern Time, according to a post on the court's official Twitter account.

SEC fines Orthofix International $14 million for accounting failures, foreign bribery
The Securities and Exchange Commission said on Wednesday it would fine Orthofix International , a Texas-based medical device company, $14 million to settle charges that it improperly booked revenue in certain instances and made improper payments to doctors at government-owned hospitals in Brazil in order to increase sales. Orthofix violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA, when its Brazilian subsidiary used high discounts and fake invoices to make improper payments through third-parties to induce government doctors to use Orthofix's products. The accounting failures caused the company to materially misstate certain financial statements from at least 2011 to the first quarter of 2013. The company agreed to admit its wrongdoing and pay an $8.25 million penalty to resolve the accounting violations and more than $6 million to settle the FCPA charges. Four former Orthofix executives, including its CFO, also agreed to settle cases related to the accounting failures without admitting or denying the findings. Orthofix's then-CEO Robert Vaters, who was not charged with wrongdoing, reimbursed the company $72,886 for cash bonuses and certain stock awards he received in error based on the restated accounting, making it unnecessary for the SEC to pursue a Sarbanes-Oxley Section 304(a) clawback action against him. Orthofix shares were flat Wednesday, but are down 8% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained about 20%.

A New Bud Light Tag Line Is Among Anheuser-Busch's Plans for the Super Bowl
Bud Light will have a 60-second spot during the Big Game, where it will debut a new friendship-focused campaign and tagline, "Famous Among Friends," from its creative shop, Wieden + Kennedy in New York.

The 60-second spot is part of Anheuser-Busch's three-minute lineup for Super Bowl LI, which will also feature another 60-second ad (Anomaly's work for Budweiser) and two 30-second spots—Deutsch's work for Busch and FCB Chicago's for Michelob Ultra. The company plans to run an ad during each quarter of the game. 

"You're going to see moving forward that we're never going to tell fantasy stories for our brands," explained Marcel Marcondes, vp of marketing in the U.S. for Anheuser-Busch, before taking a dig at 72andSunny's "Climb On" campaign for Coors Light. "We're never going to tell people to lead or climb mountains or things like this."

Marcondes continued: "I really believe that given that brands are like people I want us to be true to what our brands stand for ... we're going to stay connected to the truth of our brands, so no bullshit." 

For Budweiser, the company wanted to "celebrate ambition" by going back to its roots and telling the story of its co-founder, Adolphus Busch, and how he came from Germany to the United States in 1876 with the dream of founding Budweiser. Celebrating the American Dream is part of why the company is "comfortable putting America on our label," added Marcondes, who said the company plans to put America on its label again this year. 

Bud Light's new campaign won't feature celebrities, like last year's elections spoof with Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen. Instead, the "Famous Among Friends" campaign will tout the "big and small" moments in friendships. It is possible that work from Bud Light's new campaign will debut before the Super Bowl, noted Marcondes. 

Michelob Ultra's effort will be focused on fitness again and it will continue to use the tagline it debuted during last year's game, "Brewed for Those Who Go the Extra Mile." Last year was the first time since 2010 that Michelob Ultra was part of the Super Bowl. 

As for Busch, the value segment brand will make its Super Bowl debut but that doesn't mean the company is focusing more on the value segment now. The Busch brand has been "performing pretty well" and so "why not" bring the brand to the Super Bowl for the first time, explained Marcondes. 

Though, he also noted that Busch "stands for more traditional values" and that "it feels like there's something going on" with the brand. But Marcondes was careful to add that he "wouldn't affirm there's a social movement going on because that is an assumption." 

When considering its lineup for the Super Bowl, the company didn't take the election "into consideration," said Marcondes. "That didn't have any influence in the work that we're building. We want to be true to our brands, we're not influenced by what might be going on in the political scenario we're getting our jobs done."

Why Brands Should Include Social Video in Their Super Bowl Ad Spend
With brands shelling out north of $5 million for 30-second spots during the Super Bowl, this must be the year that they invest their time and energy into social media videos.

For one thing, they can reach a massive audience, one even bigger than the live game viewership. People watch more than 100 million hours of video on Facebook every day. And Snapchat, which reaches nearly half of 18- to 34-year-olds (compared to 6 percent by the top 15 TV networks), garners 10 billion daily video views.

Secondly, social video is getter better and better as the distribution platforms roll out offerings like livestreaming and ad products that drive business results. Finally, research by Simulmedia and Facebook reveals that a TV ad shown in proximity to a Facebook ad from the same brand can lift conversion by nearly 500 percent.

Stacey Weller

However, being successful on social platforms around the Super Bowl takes some planning. For example, developing in advance reactionary content based on the many different in-game events that are likely to occur. A well-timed post about something like a missed field goal or interception will go over well with engaged fans. Oreo's timely tweet during the 2013 Super Bowl power outage was one of the most memorable events of the game, racking up over 16,000 retweets, because it was fun and relevant to what was happening in that moment. Imagine possible scenarios and be ready to piggyback off of them.

But also plan your social posts in advance for the expected as well. You already know that every Super Bowl follows the same schedule: singing of the national anthem, coin toss, halftime show and so on. Having posts queued up for these moments will help your brand stay on top of the action. Many brands and agencies even set up 'War Rooms' during the game, with teams (we do it at Adaptly) available to promote on-the-fly messaging that may arise.

This should be the year of social video since all the platforms have refined their ability to serve better video experiences to their audiences. Twitter's Amplify products let advertisers run pre-roll video ads against premium content based on specified content categories. By selecting categories and demographics that are relevant to the conversation you want to join around the Super Bowl, your brand's ads will be tied to the most appropriate videos within the Amplify space.

In 2016, the Super Bowl attracted big audiences on Facebook and Instagram—60 million people on Facebook and 38 million on Instagram generated posts, likes and comments about the Big Game. Go for high-impact video ads on these platforms focusing on mobile placements (where 89 percent of user posts are uploaded), keeping users in-feed, and limit clickable items to avoid distracting people. Run content a fe

SEC fines marketing company for perks, non-GAAP metric disclosure issues
The Securities and Exchange Commission fined MDC Partners , a New York-based marketing company, $1.5 million to settle charges it failed to disclose certain perks granted to its then-CEO, Miles S. Nadal, and for violating disclosure rules for non-GAAP financial metrics. MDC Partners failed to disclose additional personal benefits the company paid on behalf of Nadal such as private aircraft usage, club memberships, cosmetic surgery, yacht and sports car expenses, jewelry, charitable donations, pet care, and personal travel expenses, according to the SEC. The CEO later resigned and returned $11.285 million worth of perks, personal expense reimbursements, and other items of value improperly received from 2009 to 2014. The company also improperly used a non-GAAP measure called ''organic revenue growth'' that excluded the effects of two other items, acquisitions and foreign exchange impacts. MDC Partners then revised its calculation to exclude another item, which resulted in higher ''organic revenue growth'' results, without informing investors of the change. MDC Partners also failed to give GAAP metrics equal or greater prominence to non-GAAP metrics in its earnings releases. MDC Partners neither admitted nor denied the allegations.
