Yaaahoooo! Let's get right into it...here's "what's trending" according to Yahoo:
Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian and the entire Kardashian clan don’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon, despite the boycott efforts against them. In fact, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will be raking in a cool $600,000 just to host a New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas! Now that's a way to make a living!
Katy Pery. Katy Perry and Russell Brand are reportedly having 'problems' in their marriage and have been spending 'time apart'. Hmm, didn't know she was married. And I don't even know who Russell Brand is.
Packers fan's ex-boyfriend called out with a sign. A spurned Green Bay Packers fan came up with an interesting way to call out her now-ex-boyfriend - she made a sign at the Sunday night (Dec. 25) football game between the Packers and the Chicago Bears, which caught the eye of the camera man. The sign read, "My cheating ex boyfriend is watching from couch instead." I did actually see this live and it was pretty funny.
Well this "what's trending" series may seem to dip in and out of relevancy and significance. But, again, as a top direct marketing agency building and implementing marketing communication strategies for a whide array of clients in many industries, I find it helpful to have some understanding of pop culture. I will admit that this is certainly "light" stuff, but many times these topics can contribute to building a successful integrated marketing communications campaign.
So here's to a new year filled with compelling, controversial and captivating headlines! I know I've learned a lot, how about you?
