McDonald's kicked off it's "famous orders" campaign with a pre-Super Bowl spot in 2020. However, it wasn't until Travis Scott's meal that things really took off. Since then, we've seen famous orders from J Balvin, BTS, and most recently Saweetie.

Adweek's David Griner and Shannon Miller are joined by audience engagement editor Jess Zafarris and commerce reporter Emmy Liederman to chat about their favorite (and least favorite) of the famous orders meals, the consumer response to and success of each, and whose famous orders they'd like to see next.

The alcohol industry has undergone a lot of change over the past few years. From established beer brands that now pull in most of their revenue from hard seltzer sales to the rise of a huge swath of flavored malt beverages and ready-to-drink cocktails (and even NFTs), it's hard to keep up with an industry moving at such a rapid pace.

Luckily, we have two industry experts to get you up to speed on everything you need to know about all of these developments. On this episode of "Yeah, That's Probably an Ad," we're joined by Samer Khudairi, Adweek freelance writer and organizer of the Barrel and Flow beer festival, and Adweek senior editor T.L. Stanley, to chat about the crowded alcohol landscape.

HBO Max debuted on May 27, 2020 as a relatively late entrant in a crowded streaming landscape. However, over it's first 14 months, it has proven itself to be worthy of the $14.99 per month it charges users (or $9.99 for the ad supported tier).

This week, we're joined by Adweek's streaming editor, Kelsey Sutton, to discuss all things HBO Max and how it stacks up against the other players in the streaming wars.
