The Martin Agency released its first campaign for CarMax, since it landed the Richmond-based account in April. Called “The Way It Should Be,” the campaign includes two 60-second spots,

Martin released its latest spot for Sling TV. The 30-second spot, highlighting binge-watching and “the joy of Slinging in,” stars “Saturday Night Live” alum Maya Rudolph. Doordash, a San Francisco-based food delivery service, hired Martin in August as lead creative and strategic agency. The agency also released a new video for Timberland Pro.

Martin and Discover announced they will end their working relationship at the end of this year after a 13-year run. In a release, Martin CEO Kristen Cavallo said that in that time, “A lot has changed in marketing and communications and it has become clear we have differing philosophies for the future.” The credit card company is conducting a search for a new creative agency of record.

    New Sling campaign featuring Maya Rudolph is a major disappointment. Compared to the previous approach featuring The Slinging Couple, this insipid follow-up has all the marks of being orchestrated by committee. I wouldn’t have imagined that the Martin Agency would have conceived such a bland sequel to a brilliantly executed concept. Pretty sure this creative compromise won’t be winning any Clios next year.
