That's another Weird Week come to a close.

In between the Drum editorial conference, news, news and more news, and finding time to drink alcohol, we've managed to again summarise the week's weirdest marketing and advertising stunts and fails.

Enjoy it below.

Here are this week's stories for your reference...

1. Leicester won the football. All of it. Here are the brands that tried to hijack the good vibes.

2. Some odd creatives want to unleash hordes of cats upon a London Tube Station.

3. A misguided American duo wanted to raise aid and awareness of poverty in "industrial wasteland" Glasgow.

Check out last week's episode here, it featured some Banana bling, Alien hi-tops, Prince sausages & Leicester nudity.
