  • Demand for the Alzhiemer's drug Leqembi is giving Biogen a lift this year after it backed off another promising Alzhiemer's drug, Aduhelm.

Here's a roundup of what Boston's favorite boyband — the DunKings — have released so far:

  • The Super Bowl commercial
  • A whole bunch of orange and pink apparel. The tracksuits are sold out.
  • A "Making the Band" behind the scenes video with Tom Brady, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's very convincing Cantabrigian accent.
  • And of course, the real reason for the media blitz: the branded iced coffee flavor, Munchkins Skewer and other new menu items like the Hazelnut Heartthrob.

💭 Deehan's thought bubble: Okay, guys, the DunKings thing was fun. Now let's forget it ever happened.
