...And Just Like That, It's the Monday Edition of Aly's Newsletter
I realize we’re at the point in mid-December where about half of publishing begins a slow-down, but I still have a BUNCH of assignments pending this week. More on that in a moment though.
For now, I need to talk about the most brilliant marketing win of the week (and possibly the year).
I present this Peloton commercial, which was put together in under 48 hours, after the shocking development in the "And Just Like That..." Sex and the City premiere that just about everyone has been talking about nonstop since Thursday.
In Peloton’s commercial, Jess King — who played the instructor on the show — is seen with a very alive Mr. Big, and a suggestion is made about going for 'another ride...'
Absolutely brilliantly played!
In other news, it IS the holiday season (and it feels like a month-long holiday, as Hanukkah began in November and my birthday is later this week), and aside from work things, there’s a lot of fun things going on too — more on that to come!
I also have two Zoom mixology events to attend tonight, so expect some Instagram cocktail-making shares in a few hours…(tis the season!)
OK, now back to work. It is Monday, after all!
Here's what I'm working on:
I'm rounding up all of the following, for SPY.com for this week:
1. Best iced tea makers
2. Best beverage dispensers
3. Best calendar apps
4. Best Valentine's Day gifts for new relationships
5. Best garage floor mats
6. Best Valentine's Day gifts for people who HATE Valentine's Day
To pitch me for any of these, please start a new email chain, and email email@example.com -- and please be sure to let me know in the subject which story you are pitching me for.
