Happy Friday! Another week is over, but before you start counting down the minutes until the weekend, you can settle down and have a read of this week’s Friday Finds.
As always it’s been a busy week, and thankfully there was a new member of the team joining us this week to lend a hand – welcome to Matt Plaskett, our brand new Operations Director, who’ll be working from our Windsor office.
The team paid a visit to Boiler & Co. yesterday to check out the new menu and get some great content for social media. You can head down to the restaurant and cocktail bar to try out their new 7-course tasting menu, and if you’re looking for something to do on Valentine’s Day, then you might want to check out their special dinner for two on the 14th of February.
Over on TikTok, the Hard Rock Cafe account has recently hit over 32,000 followers – and if you’re not one of them yet, then why not? You’re missing out on some great stuff, and the team has been working on some new videos that’ll be up there soon. You can give them a follow here.
We’ve started posting on social media for our client Skin Medical – you can take a look for yourself, or find out more about them on Facebook or Instagram. Another new client is FlexFarming, an eco-friendly firm that’s aiming to be the UK’s first net-zero strawberry grower. Give them a follow on LinkedIn to find out more.
Read on to find out what’s been going on in the world of social media, with some of the latest stories and updates.
This year’s Super Bowl is fast approaching – it’s on the 13th February, if it’s not already in your calendar – and as everyone knows, one of the most exciting parts of the sports event is the adverts. Some of the world’s biggest brands regularly pay millions of dollars to show an ad during the match, and this year is no exception. And some of these brands have already started teasing this year’s ads in the run up to the Super Bowl.
Nissan have enlisted the Schitt’s Creek star Eugene Levy for their offering. He can be seen looking more like an 80s action hero, with long flowing locks and getting involved in a car chase – driving a Nissan, of course. Danai Gurira and Dave Bautista can be seen in other teasers, so the finished product will be pretty star-studded. You can watch a teaser for the ad here
Expedia has also turned to a movie star, with Ewan McGregor appearing in the travel brand’s first Super Bowl ad for over a decade. In the ad, McGregor will be helping Expedia with a promotion to help viewers ‘travel the ads.’ Expedia will be giving away prizes of Expedia Points that viewers will be able to spend on holidays inspired by all of the other ads airing during the game.

Finally, Bud Light got the help of Guy Fieri for his first ever appearance in a Super Bowl advert. The chef and TV presenter, best known for his nickname ‘The Mayor of Flavortown,’ has teamed up to advertise Bud Light’s new line of hard seltzers. The ad sees Fieri starring as the ‘Mayor of the Land of Loud Flavors,’ and giving his blessing to the new drink. You can already watch the ad here, and see for yourself.
