This week’s post is pure fluff.
Yeppers. I’m not going to pretend that it’s anything other than that.
It’s the holidays and I’m in the middle of a ton of year-end work, so my writing reflects how I feel.
How do I feel? I’m mentally exhausted from a lot of thinking and planning and statistics. To unwind I sometimes read up on and watch silly stuff. Yes it’s still within my industry of digital advertising, but it’s seriously poofy, nonsensical fluff.
I may possibly throw in something of substance, so please read on and enjoy.
Sesame Street Parodies Stranger Things 2
Stranger Things is a guilty pleasure in this household. It’s one of the things the teenybopper and I are obsessed with and bond over. Why not make it even better with an awesome parody from Sesame Street?
Spotify Acquires Soundtrap
Spotify is on a tear lately, acquiring companies in an effort to grow and expand its user base and services. They acquired streaming service, MightyTV and blockchain startup Mediachain Labs earlier this year. Their most recent acquisition is collaborative music platform, Soundtrap.
Check out this groovy video. I’m totally getting in on this and having some fun with the tunes.
Why is everyone saying Dilly Dilly?
In a stroke of genius, Budweiser put out a ridiculous ad set in a medieval hall. Visitors who bring the king a favorable gift are rewarded with a chant of “dilly dilly”. Watch the commercial to see what happens to those who don’t. It’s super cheesy and definitely worth a watch.
Burger King & Bullying Jr.
Burger King created a PSA about bullying. It’s both entertaining and disturbing.
I hope you enjoyed the break from the serious. Sometimes you really do just need to watch or read silliness.
And sometimes that silliness can even have an important message like the Burger King campaign.
