This Coke is a Fanta 🥤

Below is a snippet of what we’ve sent to our subscribers today – some Good things to watch. The email version also has Good stuff to read, listen to and a few extra bits too, including a discount code for this year’s ASDIE. But, those extras are only for subscribers.

Anyway, here’s What is Good to watch this week…

This Coke is a Fanta

The expression ‘This Coke is a Fanta’ is used to make fun of homosexuals in Brazil. In the list of ‘not ok’ things to say, it’s pretty high up. So, kudos to Coca-Cola, who have taken ownership of the expression and ran with it – they put out a limited of regular-looking Coke cans that were actually filled with Fanta. Awesome.

Breaking Ballet

How can you make ballet relevant? By creating works based on trending stories, that’s how. Check out this showreel for what Breaking Ballet does, and then maybe dig deeper and watch the individual videos too.

Holiday!

We all love being on holiday, right? Especially if, when we’re sat chilling by the pool, we find out that the weather back home is rubbish. One travel firm in Denmark set up a machine on a tropical beach to allow people not just to read about what the weather was doing back home, but actually feel it.

Savor Saver

This is just marvellous – a Candy company has made some sweets that help boost tastebuds, so that cancer patients can actually still taste their food while undergoing chemo. Why is this important? Well, chemo can make food taste pretty awful, but if patients don’t keep eating they won’t have the energy to undergo their treatment. These sweets could literally be life-saving.

Woke

It seems we’re finally leaving avocados behind as a punchline and instead looking at all things ‘woke’. To be fair to Saturday Night Live, this parody ad is very funny…while also being realistic enough that it wouldn’t be a surprise if a brand actually did this. Also…is that Kenan from Kenan and Kel?? (For any younger readers, that’s a 90s reference. Google it. No, they didn’t die).
