Here are some of the best marketing articles we found this week. Enjoy!

This Week's Top Marketing News

YouTube Will Soon Require Creators to Disclose if AI was Used to Create Videos

YouTube has new rules forcing creators to label their videos if they use AI to create any content in their videos. This will help YouTube users distinguish between authentic content and content that could be misinformation or deepfake videos.

This is totally going to work because creators of misinformation and deepfakes are concerned about following rules and letting you know their cogent might not be real. If we only had this in place when Snoop recently announced he was giving up smoke… all this confusion will end soon. Thanks YouTube.

Google Docs Shortcuts and Hacks

Google Docs is the go-to text editor for over 1 billion users per month. Most like the tool because of its simplicity but that does not mean it lacks functionality. Here are some lesser-known features in Google Docs you can use the next time you’re cranking out some content.

  • Switch to a pageless view
  • Create building blocks

Stanley Travel Mug Survives Car Fire and Company Replaces Vehicle

A car fire is a scary thing. Unless there’s a firetruck immediately on site, there’s little saving the car from being fully engulfed in flames.

TikTok user @danimarielettering shared a video of her car destroyed in a fire. One thing that survived the fire was her Stanley tumbler which still had ice in it.

Stanley’s president was quick to respond:

"We're all really glad you're safe. Thanks for sharing the video, because wow it really shows how our Stanleys are built for life. Because what it went through with you, I couldn't think of a better example of our product's quality."

He then offered to replace her car noting that Stanely has never done anything like this before and they will probably never do it again. Probably a good disclaimer to keep kids from starting another dumbass Stanley Inferno TikTok challenge where you hold a Stanley and parachute into an active volcano.
