In this episode he explores cases when a smaller brand or product positions itself against a much bigger brand/product in part by attacking the weak spot in a bigger brand's marketing position. It's a strategy of brinksmanship, because it means a smaller company not only chooses to attack a larger company, but it attacks the weakness in a bigger company's strength. It takes surgical precision, but when done well, the smaller advertiser gains market share, while diminishing the bigger company's reputation at the same timeHe also talks about how brands can turn their weaknesses into strengths.
