When Pete Pitre bought a series of dry dog shampoos in an effort to help an elderly friend better take care of her dog by stretching out the time between baths, he was disappointed.
One product contained Talc.
Another had an ingredients list that was hard to read.
And the last said to “keep out of reach of dogs and children.”
Sunday will be Groundhog Day here in the U.S. I don’t know about you, but every year, around this time, I’m always reminded of the classic 1993 Bill Murray film, where Murray’s character is stuck in a time loop, reliving the same day over and over again.
George Santayana references aside, “moving on” means acknowledging and learning from what we did wrong. So partly in homage to one of my favorite movies ever, and partly as a plea to Punxsutawney Phil to please, please, please not see his shadow (I’m cold!), this week’s roundup shares posts on breaking the cycle of mistakes … of all kinds.
When Vine debuted last January, I wasn’t convinced of how much difference just six seconds could make. Sure, our attention spans are seemingly dwindling by the second, but six seconds doesn’t allow for much.
Leave it to me to doubt humanity. A year later, and I’m in love with BatDad. Still, the use of Vine, and Instagram’s answer to it of 15 second videos, didn’t seem like something brands would be able to leverage quickly.
There’s a long way to go, but a Vine sent by Jake Tapper on January 2nd finally made it all click for me. I find that to be a brilliant use of six seconds: the name of Tapper’s show and a rundown of what will be covered while he’s on the air.
