A weekly roundup of media news, sans effort
Quote of the week
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.” Oscar Wilde, which seemed fitting to re-appropriate for Black Friday- today.
In keeping with the above quote, we couldn’t help but laugh out loud (yep, massive LOLs) at this video marrying David Attenborough’s nature doc commentary with hordes of rabid consumers hitting the high street to try and secure a Black Friday deal.
Co-creator and CEO of Tinder, Sean Rad, appeared in an interview with London’s Evening Standard recently, claiming to be a ‘romantic’ and ‘ready to settle down’ to have ‘lots of kids’. Nevertheless, he also admits to being addicted to his dating app, which many associate more with one-night hookups than lasting relationships, something that seems at odds with his self-professed honour. Twitter has been alive with metaphorical raised eyebrows since.
