Lowe’s Escape Room
M: This is pretty cool. As DIY projects continue to skyrocket in trends, Home Improvement retailer Lowe’s took advantage in a unique way. Ever go to one of those Escape Rooms? Well Lowe’s challenged four DIY experts to build their way out of a custom room that the company had built. The four members involved an electrician, a contractor, and two YouTubers to collaborate on how they would get out. With several of the challenges surrounding home projects, like lighting, ventilation, and plumbing, Lowe’s put all this together in a fun an engaging way. See clips below:
Cards Against Humanity Saves America:
M: Cards Against Humanity is known to do some pretty outlandish type stuff. Remember when you could literally buy/gift someone a piece of bullshit? Well this year they are taking things to a different level…politically. In order to put a thorn in Donald Trump’s side, the CAH organization has actually purchased a slot of land where the president has intended to build the wall on the Mexican border. Titled “Cards Against Humanity Saves America”, people had the option to donate $15 to support the cause and in exchange, get a few different gifts. A member from their organization stated that:
“We’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built… Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards and a few other surprises.”
Known for their wild antics and social commentary, CAH is fighting a fight that they intend to win. I love this idea.
