Happy Epic Friday! We’ve put together some top marketing stories, along with other interesting tid-bits, for your viewing pleasure this Friday and weekend!

What happens when you put a boy in front of a girl and ask him to slap her? Here is how children react to the subject of violence against women, in a moving and wonderful advert has been shot by Italian website fanpage.it.

Finally for this week’s Epic Friday, you probably know that the Swedish word for ‘yes’ is ‘ja’. Right?
As this bizarre little video from Sweden’s English-language news site, TheLocal.se, shows that northern Swedes have a slightly different word for ‘yes’. That is, of course, if you can call it a ‘word’ at all.
That’s it from Epic Friday for another week! Let us know what you thought of any of our featured stories, and also if you think we should cover something in next week’s edition!
