Friday Fives, Vol. 112

Every Friday we highlight five things we have on our radar that we think should be on yours, too.

Next Tuesday, February 11th from 6PM-8PM, our Founder Jolene Delisle will be participating in a panel about new collaboration structures and running a next-gen agency model. Sponsored by our friends at Part and Sum x Industry City and moderated by Sunday Dinner, RSVP at to join us at Camp David. We’d love to see you there.

Here’s this week’s Friday Fives.

Ship A Man Two Day

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with that comes a lot of pressure (apparently). Seemingly, not everyone is on board with the whole concept that V-Day is a marketing gimmick, and this holiday can seriously get some people in their feels. However, with AmazonDating you can just Prime yourself a hot V-Day date! Disclaimer: This site is obviously a parody. However, in the age of singles using online platforms as a means for human connection, the whole concept of “AmazonDating” is genius and hilariously accurate. Don’t we all just wish we could get free two day shipping on a boyfriend? — RW

It Was All A Set!

Arguably one of last year’s most exciting and talked about films was Parasite — Director Bong Joon Ho’s thriller out of Korea. Nominated for six academy awards including production design, Vulture digs into its aesthetics and purposeful set design. Both houses, the modern mansion, and half-basement apartment were film sets built from scratch. It’s another intriguing aspect of this great film that’s worth digging into. — MC

Baby Yoda Drives Shares Up

In less than two months, the streaming service Disney Plus gained 26.5 million subscribers. But critics are starting to question how long people will stay interested in the platform, as they haven’t released another series or movie since The Mandalorian. And while I am one of the many customers of Disney Plus, I generally still choose Netflix over it. But I do enjoy the fact that I have the ability to watch Tangled with the click of a button. — SS

Just Ollie It

2020 marks the debut of skateboarding as an official sport in the Olympics, and as the date closes in Nike has announced its first-ever Olympic skateboarding uniforms. For this project Nike partnered with Piet Parra, a Dutch artist and ex-skateboarder himself, to design the uniforms for the United States, France and Brazil. So mark your calendars! The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be taking place from July 24th to August 9th. — CC

Dunkaroos: We Back

Everyone can finally stop panicking. Dunkaroos has officially announced its comeback after mysteriously disappearing from US grocery stores in 2012. The addicting snack was pulled due to competition from healthier snacks. After substantial pushback from its fans (one of which included fighting words from Kim Kardashian), Dunkaroos are back. The knuckle-sized cookies with miniature tubs of dippable frosting will stay true to its original ingredients, and are here to stay! — DD
