Elated Buffalo Bills fans shower another team's quarterback with donations

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 15:26

Buffalo Bills fandom has come a long way since the infamous dildo Incident of 2016.

For the first time in 17 years, Buffalo's favorite NFL team has clinched a playoff berth. And they did it in dramatic fashion with a little help. To celebrate, Bills fans are showing their appreciation with cash donations for a charity foundation headed by another team's quarterback.

The Bills ended their season on Sunday with a much-needed win over the Miami Dolphins, keeping playoff hopes alive. But it was a surprise Cincinnati Bengals upset in a match-up with the Baltimore Ravens that clinched the Bills playoff berth, and much of that victory is owed to quarterback Andy Dalton's dramatic game-ending touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd with 44 seconds left on the clock.

'A Series of Unfortunate Events' returns to Netflix for Season 2 in March

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 15:18

A Series of Unfortunate Events is returning to Netflix with a second season on March 30, the show revealed in the above teaser, which took fans a little bit of sleuthing to find in the first place.

The Twitter account for the show tweeted out a poem Monday morning with a few capitalized words smattered throughout, which when put together with the obtusely conspicuous "(.com)" at the end led to a website with another poem linking out to A Series of Unfortunate Events's Netflix page containing the teaser. 

The teaser doesn't contain too much outside of a monologue from Neil Patrick Harris's character Count Olaf, but there are a few quick scenes that look like they've been pulled out of the fifth, sixth, and seventh Series of Unfortunate Events novels on which the show are based. Read more...

That weird-ass milking scene in 'The Last Jedi' was a lot of work, you guys

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 15:11

Star Wars: The Last Jedi polarized audiences so much that we can't even agree on loving or hating the infamous blue milk scene. It turns out director Rian Johnson was heavily invested in the realism of that scene, as elaborated by creature designer Neal Scanlan.

"It was designed to be able to breathe and there was a milk delivery system, on the inside," Scanlan told Collider

Also on the inside: Two full-sized human puppeteers and a fully-functional milking system. The puppeteers (who enter by opening the creatures head, sure) had monitors on the inside to follow the scene while the milking occured. The entire creature, the Thala-siren, was built and transported to filming location via helicopter. Read more...

Train company responds to woman's complaint about sexist behaviour with, uh, more sexism

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 12:03

Heads up, companies: when a woman makes a complaint about the misogynist behaviour of a male employee, take her seriously. 

Sadly, this isn't what happened when a woman complained to a UK train company about the dismissive and patronising conduct of one of their train conductors. Instead, her complaint was met with a snarky and completely tone deaf response.

Emily Lucinda Cole tweeted a complaint to Virgin Trains East Coast that an older male train manager dismissed her in a "patronising" way, calling her "honey." 

When virgin trains mess up and the older male train manager in the resulting conversation dismisses you with that hideously patronising word women shudder at in contexts such as these: "honey" @virgin_trainsEC.

Zac Efron tells the strange story of how he made Michael Jackson cry

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 10:36

Zac Efron never met Michael Jackson face-to-face, but he does have one pretty random claim to fame: he once made the singer cry over the telephone.

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, Efron explained that he was put on the phone to Jackson by his then-director Kenny Ortega when they were having dinner.

The first conversation was pretty one-sided, but Jackson apparently rang Ortega back when he realised he'd just been talking to the star of High School Musical. It turned out he was also a big fan of Efron's work.

"I lost it," says Efron in the clip above. "I just lost it. I lost my balance, I think I fell over into the wall. I was like, 'You know who I am! What?!'. I just started crying, I was a mess." Read more...

YouTube star Logan Paul apologises for video showing an apparent victim of suicide

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 06:05

YouTube star Logan Paul has issued an apology for posting a video containing footage of an apparent victim of suicide, but it might not be enough for some.

In the now-removed video, the 22-year-old vlogger visited Japan's Aokigahara forest on the northwestern flank of Mount Fuji. The forest's name translates to the "Sea of Trees" but is known internationally as the "Suicide Forest," the site of hundreds of suicides every year.
