As the UK weather chills, the media world heats up with brands vying for prime Black Friday spots. Let’s dive into a week of Good and Bad PR, sprinkled with a touch of humour.
Kudos to Flora for buttering up the media with a personality analysis based on toast-spreading habits. While the analysis might have missed the mark for some, it’s a brilliantly quirky story. And yes, there are folks who butter both sides of their toast – not a euphemism, just toast enthusiasts deserving of a watchlist!
Nostalgia marketing rules, and the Beckhams nailed it with their Netflix documentary. It’s a heartwarming tale filled with affection and even the pig scandal. In a world of chaos, their story reminds us of simpler times when football teams disappointed and boy bands prioritized style over singing, but we adored them all the same.

Her world tour gracing cinemas might raise eyebrows about her private jet’s impact on the ozone layer, but commercially, she gives back. Vue and Cineworld announced sing-along screenings, a brilliant move to uplift the cinema economy. A round of applause for Taylor Swift and her PR team!
