Social Media Day: Our Top 5 Favourite, Genius Pieces of Content!

As a brand that lives on social media, we thought it only fitting the we celebrate Social Media Day! We aren’t sure what this day really means or what one is supposed to do on Social Media Day, that we don’t do on a daily basis anyway?! So, we thought we would celebrate the campaigns and social media content that has caught our eye in the first half of 2016!

1. Dizzy little hamsters!

We still can’t decide whether this is mean or not?! But a few seconds in and you just can’t help but laugh so much you may even snort! This video went so viral it was everywhere, we can’t even remember where we first saw it! A true viral success story! Were they selling hamsters or wheels?

2. The incredibly happy Chewbacca lady?

This video made us double over in hysterics back in May and it still has the exact same effect now! Candace Payne in fits of giggles over her Chewbacca mask went viral instantly, being the most watched video on Facebook EVER!  It has had now had over 158 million views on Facebook! Trust us, it is well worth the watch, you will laugh though, so no watching it on your phone in a meeting!!

We also loved Facebook’s response to invite her to HQ and hang out with Zuckerberg to celebrate her video becoming the most watched Facebook live video ever. It is just such a feel good story and you could see she was really enjoying every second of it!

3. WWF adopt a unicorn…

How to fill that empty void now that GoT is over

TV shows to binge on before next season of Game of Thrones


Nothing can truly fill the gap that Daenerys’ and Jon Snow’s departure has left in our lives. Trust us, we feel it too. To try and help null the pain we’ve consulted our FMAG office (full of hardcore TV bingers) to give you some TV alternatives that’ll hopefully keep you going until the next season of GoT drops.

Shown on: Sky Atlantic

The first season has finished but is available to download. It’s intelligent and juicy, starring Damien Lewis (Homeland) and Paul Giamatti (Straight Outta Compton) it’s a complex drama about power politics in the world of New York high finance. Ruthless yet savvy U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) collides with ambitious hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis), with each using their enviable intelligence, power and influence to outmanoeuvre and attempt to bring down the other. The stakes are in the billions!! Although complex, it is a relatively easy watch – gripping and intriguing with some dark stuff in there too.

Why to watch: The drama is subtle but keeps you coming back for more. It’ll also make you want to watch the stock markets and even have a little dabble in some shares!

Star rating compared to GoTs: 4 out of 5 stars!

Mastering the Martini on Martini Day: From Leo to Beyoncé…

9 Sexy and Suave Celebrities Who Know How to Celebrate Martini Day…

Martini is the go-to drink of movie stars, artists, models and on-screen spies. There’s just a certain je ne sais quoi you get from holding a Martini in your hand that can’t be achieved with any other drink. It’s the same reason that James Bond won’t ever be caught strawpedoing a bottle of WKD or supping from a can of cheap cider.

Martini has class and elegance and that’s why the crème-de-la-crème of society will always be drawn to it. It has to be said that some people pull off the Martini better than others. To show this we’ve assessed the Martini holding skills of the World’s most famous:

Leonardo Di Caprio shows the world how you should be with a Martini. The glass fits his hand with such ease and his face oozes confidence, class and style. I mean, if you’re going to drink a Martini you may as well be wearing a tuxedo and have fireworks going off behind you.

Martini Mastery: 10/10

Our wonderful Queen at 90!

As everyone knows by now, this year Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II turns 90! Through turbulent times our Queen has stayed Steadfast, Constant and Dutiful – words used by the BBC to describe her. Although a large portion of her kingdom is believed to no longer support the Royal Family, a survey conducted by Sky showed that actually 70% of her kingdom does still love and support them, a great figure in our view! In times where the world sometimes seems to be falling apart, the Royal Family are what keeps our country real and grounded, if we lost them I fear the whole country could perhaps fall apart. In the words of Queen Elizabeth II herself “Whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load” hear hear maam!

So to celebrate I (the PR girl/ absolute lover of the Queen) pick out some favourite photos of Her Majesty to celebrate and share what I absolutely adore about her and why I am so incredibly happy to be celebrating her 90th birthday.
