Winning Entry:

At Rethink, we value our independence more than anything. So we decided to put our money where our mouth is and invest against advertising holding companies, whose sole purpose is profitability. We went to interview actual traders and ask them what they thought of potentially shorting WPP, Publicis, Omnicom and IPG, like that movie with Ryan Gosling. The interviews were cut in a promotional video.
