TWITTER FLIPS ITS LID OVER COFFEE CUP IN GOT – (05/07/2019)
Something weird turned up in Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones, and fans are not OK with it. In the great hall of Winterfell, a coffee-free fictional realm of Westeros, a coffee cup appeared on the table.
Screamed one fan via Twitter, “my favorite show in the entire world forgot a STARBUCKS COFFEE CUP ON THE TABLE WHILE FILMING.”
Every episode of the final season of the show is dissected on social media, and fans are losing their minds over the oversight, considering the reported budget of $10 million + per episode and the teams of production assistants, editors and set dressers responsible for making every element perfect.
CHANCE THE RAPPER HELPS CONVINCE WENDY’S TO BRING BACK SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS – (05/07/2019)
Wendy’s will bring back its spicy chicken nuggets, thanks in part to a social media nudge from Chance the Rapper.
The fast-food chain removed the item from its national menu in March 2017, although a few markets such as Austin, Texas, and St. Louis, kept the dish.
But demand for the spicy snack continued to simmer and on Saturday, Wendy’s tweeted that if fans generated 2 million likes on the social network for their tweet that the spicy nuggets would return.
That afternoon, Chance the Rapper liked the Wendy’s treat himself and added his own plea for Wendy’s to relent: “Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today,” he tweeted.
As the number of likes soared, Chance even tossed in some album promotion as a part of his nugget campaign. Eventually, the brand confirmed that the nuggets would, indeed be coming back – at an unknown date.
“THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy!” the fast food franchise tweeted.
