Shell couldn't even be stopped this week by Victoria's Secret, promoting the brand's first show in Paris and unveiling a lavish holiday campaign, or Apple, introducing its highly anticipated MacBook Pro. LeBron James, star of new videos for Sprite and Nike, couldn't catch Shell either. Microsoft, with a showcase of the new Surface Studio that "out-Appled Apple," came closest.
