Can These Christmas Movies Be Improved? We Think So

Just because something is a holiday tradition doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. For example, fruit cake. Or how about telling children they’re being secretly surveilled and judged by an old man who they don’t even know? 

The same holds true for Christmas movies. After watching these classics again and again, it’s hard not to think of a few ways they could be reimagined, rewritten or just plain removed from holiday history.

Plant-Based Holiday Roasts, Ranked and Roasted

How can you tell if someone is vegan? 

Don’t worry — they’ll tell you. 

Alternative punchline: invite them to Thanksgiving. If the only dish they touch is canned cranberry sauce, you’ll know. Unless you’ve got a plant-based turkey on hand, that is — and these days, you actually might. 

In the last few years, meat-free food has undergone a major rebrand. Vegan is dead — and if you ask me, good riddance. In its place is a shiny new rebrand: Plant-Based. Ushered in by the tastebud-defying likes of Beyond Meat and Impossible Burger, meat-free options are not only bountiful these days, but actually palatable.

Pride Never Stops: Celebrate ATL Pride Virtually with #FreeToBe

Free To Be

For many in Atlanta, Pride means celebration — think rainbow confetti, marching for equality and, of course, partying the house down. But the last two years have reminded us that Pride is so much more than a parade. Last year, we took Pride season into perspective with the injustices that have disproportionately affected queer communities of color for decades.

And this year, Atlanta Pride is being held virtually once again due to COVID-19. So instead of building a float, the Nebo team created Free To Be, a digital Pride experience that not only celebrates our freedom to be ourselves, it also shines the spotlight on organizations doing good for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Why RuPaul Charles Is the Queen of Advertising

Anyone who watches RuPaul’s Drag Race knows that RuPaul Charles is more than a drag queen — he’s the Queen of Advertising. 

Every episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race is essentially 90 minutes of advertisements dressed up in ostrich feathers, from perfect product placements to schticky self-promotion. And yet, no one is changing the channel. In fact, the show’s 13th season just swept the Emmy Awards with a whopping six wins and a total of 24 trophies over the years. 

Somehow, Ru and his girls have taken advertising from ad nauseum to sickening success. What’s the show’s secret? Here’s the tea on what makes RuPaul’s Drag Race a marketing masterpiece.
