Carrot Clicks: Our Week in Biggie Smalls, Krispy Kreme, and Mushroomsby Kim David
Last week proved that there really is nothing more important in life than being really really really good looking when Zoolander closed out Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week show. We received a taste of what’s to come from the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. But if old classics are more of your thing, Tim Burton is reimagining "Dumbo" as a live-action film. Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, there’s a 7th "Fast and Furious" movie coming out.
Apple gave us all dongle fever when they introduced the latest Macbook last week. It’s thinner than the thickest pancake you ever saw. But Google was prepared when they dropped their watch right before. And if all you do is sit in front of a screen like the rest of us, you can now get HBO on your Apple TV.
If things have been a little rough for you last week, Costco’s got your back with a barrel of Jack. Or you can get your Girl Scout cookie fix to-go (if you’re in New Hampshire). Everyone in NYC pretty much lost their minds last week upon hearing about the arrival of Chik-fil-a. Hate ‘em or love ‘em, the chicken is good. Look at it this way, at least they’re not McDonald’s trying to feed you kale.
One of the greats, Biggie Smalls, was remembered in a ton of dope ways last week. This one should have totally broke the internet. As an ode to Brooklyn, this guy made an entire map out of litter found in the borough. Also, if you’ve been feelin’ like a plebeian lately, there’s an app for that.
Last weekend a bunch of brands and The Clinton Foundation made women disappear to raise awareness for International Women’s Day. The guys at Uber also took action by partnering with the UN to commit to hiring 1 million female drivers by 2020.
Fat Jewish was crowned The King of Instagram last week. And speaking of Instagram, no one noticed Uncle Jesse in front of the house from the show and everyone called out this Vogue editor for her Insta-boo boo. Speaking of messed up stuff, this guy stole a bunch of Michelangelo’s stuff from the Vatican and is asking them for a ransom. Yeah, that happened.
