IHG just launched Holiday Inn ads with a surprisingly real message

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 17:33

If you purchase something through MashStash, Mashable might earn some cash through an affiliate commission. 

When was the last time you actually laughed out loud with your best friend? Sure, a “LOL” over text counts for staying in touch, but nothing really compares to an IRL catchup. 

In a series of new ads for two of the largest hotel brands in the world, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express, IHG captures those “had to be there” moments with just the right amount of realness. These ads put genuine, human connection in the spotlight rather than amenities like super-fast WiFi and fitness facilities — which, of course, you’ll still find at check-in.  Read more...

Smoky Anchorage has the worst air quality in the U.S.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 16:22

Anchorage's smoky summer won't relent. As of Tuesday morning, the most populated city in Alaska had the worst air quality in the nation, according to the World Air Quality Index

A number of late-season wildfires have perpetuated Anchorage's hazy summer, which has been the city's smokiest summer on record. On Tuesday morning, smoke levels ranked as "unhealthy," with an air quality index of 175. 

Warming Alaska — the fastest-changing state in the U.S. — has been primed for wildfire this summer, after the Last Frontier experienced record-breaking heat waves and its hottest July ever recorded (reliable temperature data in Alaska goes back nearly a century, to 1925). The area burned this summer, while not record-breaking, still amounts to one of Alaska's largest documented fire years, having scorched some 2.44 million acres, an area about twice the size of Delaware.  Read more...

More delivery robots head to college campuses to bring you late-night pizza

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 16:03

If you live on a college campus, prepare to see more delivery robots around. Just don't expect one of them to bring you beer.

Starship Technologies has announced that their slow, steady, and meticulous takeover of the world will continue at 100 universities in the next two years, thanks to $40 million in new funding, presumably from the pro-Skynet contingent. 

The robots will deliver just about everything: Starbucks, pizza, sushi, and anything else a college kid might need at 1 a.m. during finals week or your average Tuesday night. (CNET notes the robots typically deliver anytime between 8 a.m. and 2 a.m., seven days a week.) Read more...

The Apple Card fits perfectly into 'American Psycho' in this seamless re-edit

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 16:00

Thought American Psycho couldn’t get more, well...psycho?

Thanks to YouTube channel NeonFlareify, the infamous fictional investment banker/serial killer has a new tool with which to try and one-up his fellow finance bros: The Apple Card, in all its laser-etched glory. Because it’s 2019, and business cards are so yesterday.

The edit seamlessly brings the scene into modernity, with Bateman and his squad of hair-slicked elites taking turns showing off their cards in a not-so-subtle showing of finance culture gamesmanship.

If the Apple Card re-imagining is any indication, it won’t be long before we’re all drooling over our new status symbols, sure to be available in a variety of colors. “That’s hubcap,” we’ll say, highlighting the card’s metallic shade. But don’t forget all the other options that will undoubtedly be available: Steel, aged platinum, thundercloud, off-titanium, ice pigeon, gra — yeah, they’re all the same color. But no less “tastefully thicc.” Read more...

Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson's 'Marriage Story' gets two heartbreaking trailers

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 15:39

Every relationship belongs to at least two people. Movies can usually only pick one point of view, but the dual companion teasers to Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story, starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, show the titular union as it appears to both parties.

Both teasers ask their respective protagonists: What do you love about your partner? Driver and Johansson answer in character, with minimal overlap in footage (and different songs in the background) before building to a tense and pivotal conversation for them both.

"Marriage Story is a love story that reveals itself within the breakdown," Baumbach said in a Netflix press release. "With these companion trailers I wanted to show the relationship through the eyes of both characters. There are many sides to every story, and the movie embraces these different viewpoints in order to find the shared truth.”  Read more...

Burrow's new Sleep Kit is a couch surfer's dream

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 15:18

Whether you were down on your luck at one point or simply drained one too many White Claws while hanging at a buddy’s apartment, you’ve most likely had to crash on somebody’s couch before — and we probably don’t have to remind you about the back pain and wave of regret that comes along with that. 

Instead of spending another night on a wonky air mattress or rock-solid futon, Burrow (you know, the people who make those super comfy, super trendy couches?) have a brand new Sleep Kit. It's their solution to the avid couch surfer’s greatest plights. 

That's the face of pure bliss, right there.

Sony's Xperia 1 smartphone is $100 off for Prime members

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 15:13

TL;DR: Prime members can score an all-new Sony Xperia 1 from Amazon for just $849.99. The extra-wide smartphone usually costs $949.99, so you'll save $100.

"Apple iPhone versus Samsung Galaxy" is a debate as old as time, like "Pepsi versus Coke" or "Marvel versus DC" or "Team Jacob versus Team Edward." (Team Jacob all the way, FWIW.)

Sony threw its hat in the smartphone ring back in 2008 with a family of devices called Xperia, which never took off like iPhones or other Android devices despite having a couple cool features. But that could all change with the new Sony Xperia 1, a smartphone released this past June sporting an extra-wide display that Mashable's Ray Wong called "refreshing."  Read more...

This 13-piece Cuisinart cookware set is $93 off at Walmart

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 15:08

TL;DR: This durable 13-piece cookware set from Cuisinart is on sale for $107.38 at Walmart, saving you $91.62 off of Cuisinart's official price.

National Garage Sale Day was just a few weeks ago (Aug. 8, if you were wondering), and we'd put money on the fact that pots and pans were one of the most popular items. 

If you missed the shopping holiday, you shouldn't have to head into the school year with subpar cooking utensils and a microwave as your only go-to.

There are still opportunities to get brand new sets on the cheap: This 13-piece hard anodized set from Cuisinart is usually $185.71 (but more accurately $199, if you go by Cuisinart's official site) but is on sale for $107.38 with free next-day or free two-day delivery options. Read more...

Conair GS2 Complete Steam fabric steamer is on sale for 55% off at Walmart

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 08/20/2019 - 15:02

TL;DR: Get the compact Conair GS2 Complete Steam fabric steamer for $14.99. It's usually priced at $34, so you'll be saving $19 while staying wrinkle-free. 

You know what’s worse than waking up the morning of your big class presentation and realizing the outfit you planned to wear is wrinkled past the point of saving? Nothing. There’s nothing worse. Your confidence is shot, things are off to a rough start, and even your favorite shirt can’t save you now. 

Or you could just get a steamer. Because a lot of style rules — like not wearing white after Labor Day — have evolved over the years, but wearing a wrinkled outfit is still a big old universal fashion no-go.  Read more...
