With the New York City terrorist attack and various scandals and indictments, there was a lot of serious talk on social media this week. We also saw a lighter side, with Halloween celebrating a sense of fun and bringing people together.
- Winning Halloween: While some folks might throw on some fake cat ears or put on a pumpkin sweater, others go all out – really all out. From spoofing memes to honoring favorite TV shows, the range of options for tweet-worthy costumes has never been greater. Some personal favs: a green army man on the subway, dad bod Leonardo DiCaprio and the DMV sloth from Zootopia.
- “Meat” Me in the Middle? Other than fruitcake and politics, few things are more polarizing than candy corn. No matter which side of the aisle you’re on, it’s worth wondering what gives these kernels of contention their, uh, unique taste and texture. If you guessed the cartilage and bones of animals, you are…right? But before you get too grossed out, remember that gelatin is in a ton of other things that we all eat, so enjoy!
- Crisis Costume-ications: The next time a current or prospective client asks you to describe your PR crisis strategy, tell them you always take a creative approach and will represent them especially well on Oct. 31. Whether it’s Kendall Jenner with a can of Pepsi or Warren Beatty telling millions that “La La Land” won Best Picture, dressing up as your favorite crisis on Halloween will allow everyone to take a step back and wonder, again: “How did they let that happen?”
- IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: There were some great entries, but we SQUASHed the competition in our building’s pumpkin contest! Our Pumpkin Spice Latte brewed up a win for Most Original Pumpkin! Quite the Happy Halloween, indeed.
