Selfie Kid's Half-Time Performance Wins Crowd
The only thing as certain as expensive Super Bowl half-time TV spots are the inevitable memes following the event. Move over, Left Shark, there’s a new kid in town. Meet Selfie Kid, the new awkward and reluctant hero of 2018. He looked a little bit lost during the half-time show as he tried to ready his phone to grab a selfie with Justin Timberlake. We give it 2 days before he’s on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Get that selfie, kid.

Coup D'état: Google & Facebook Employees Form Coalition
Remember in Iron Man, when Tony Stark had a change of heart after he saw what his weapons were actually being used for? Imagine that, but with more spectacle-wearers (and less RDJ) and you have what’s basically happening here. Early Facebook and Google employees are forming a union with the watchdog group, Common Sense Media. It’s called the Centre For Humane Technology and will focus taking down the monsters they tried to create.

Holy Guacamole: Avocado Is Top Super Bowl Ad
Aside from Selfie Kid, it appears that the most talked about advertiser on Twitter and Instagram was a company called “Avocados From Mexico.” Now, that should answer the two main questions of “what do they sell?” and “where from?” - the only remaining question is “why?” Something, something Millennials?

Netflix Drops Cloverfield Sequel (Almost) Immediately After Announcement
After rumours of delays and an apparent imminent release date, many wrote the planned Cloverfield sequel off as doomed. Little did we know that they’d already finished the whole thing and have it ready on the same night they released the trailer. We all thought that Netflix was just breaking into feature films and would ease into the market. Nope, they smacked us in the face yet again with their innovation stick. It’s just a shame that the movie can’t seem to match their ambitious intentions.

Famous Person Makes Baby. World Goes Nuts.
Well, we tried to ignore it, but nearly 30 million views in 24 hours is kind of a big deal. So, we’ll cover it in our own unique way. Somebody famous made a baby, then hired a YouTuber to make a video about it. Lots of people saw it. The End.
