New Chevrolet Campaign Features...LEGO!


MT. PLEASANT, Mich -- Chevrolet just dropped an all-new campaign series, consisting of television, social media, and movie theatre ads today featuring a LEGO brick replica of the 2019 Silverado 1500 High Country and characters from the new big-screen, animated feature "The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part." which hits theatres on Feb. 8

In the ads, Emmet and Lucy escape a mysterious alien invader in a Satin Steel Metallic Silverado 1500 High Country made of LEGO bricks. Want to see more than shown in the ad? Head to your local movie theatre on February 8th for this fun and action-packed sequel, where Emmet, Lucy, and their friends reunite to save their beloved city from a new threat and journey to unexplored new worlds.

Paul Edwards U.S. Vice President of Chevrolet Marketing explained the project this way: 

"From Emmet's custom High Country to the real-life Trail Boss that inspired the full-size LEGO brick model, we have a Silverado for everyone - both LEGO mini-figures and everyday drivers...the new ads are a fun addition to our Silverado campaign and will hopefully attract the next generation of truck buyers to Chevrolet." 

Emmet, Lucy, and the custom LEGO mini-build High Country are featured in similar social media posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Unique to Instagram stories, fans can build their own LEGO Chevy Silverado one brick at a time, with a tap-to-assemble opportunity with the film's characters. The 30-second version of the ad will also run in Spanish target markets.

Are you planning on seeing the LEGO movie sequel? Why or why not? Comment and let us know!

A Guide to Enjoying Valentines Day While You're Single


MT. PLEASANT, Mich -- Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you're not in a relationship, you might be dreading spending the popular romantic holiday alone. Chin up! Just because you're not taken doesn't mean you can't enjoy an awesome V-day on your own! Here's our guide to enjoying Valentine's Day while you're unattached. Relationship status? Self-empowered. 


A SPA DAY IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA 

Pro Tip: When you're single on Valentines Day, you get to spoil the MOST special person: YOU! Go all out with a massage, facial, acupuncture treatment or Reiki session, whatever feels good for you, because let's be real, you absolutely deserve it. Not into spas? Head to the gym, take a hot yoga class or go for a nature walk. Do whatever feeds your soul, because you're worth it. 

PAY IT FORWARD

Not only is Valentines Day the holiday of love, but it also falls right in the middle of National Random Acts of Kindness Week! Pass some good karma out, because you never know exactly how much it will impact someone else's life. Check out volunteer opportunities in your area, visit a senior, pay for a stranger's lunch, the possibilities are endless. Plus, you'll be surprised by how fulfilling showing pure, selfless love for others can be. 


HIT UP YOUR SQUAD

If you're lacking a little romance in your life, don't despair! Celebrate the love you share with your amazing friends! Write them a platonic love letter, have a V-Day potluck, go on a friend date, or have a night in with some good old Netflix and popcorn. The best part about spending the holiday with your besties? Guaranteed fun, no expectations. 

WEAR SOMETHING FESTIVE 

Get into the spirit of the day, and wear something that makes you feel good. Turn it up a notch with a cute little black dress, some red heels, and a show-stopping makeup look. Wear whatever makes you feel strong and beautiful. If you have to be with someone else to dress up, well, you're missing the point... EMPOWER YOURSELF! 

DO YOU

It's your day and no one else's, so do what makes you feel happy and content. If the thought of going out into the world and running into happy couples as far as the eye can see makes you feel like cringing, STAY IN! Rock those sweatpants you should have thrown away 10 years ago, and slay that messy bun game. Cook your favorite food, or order a large pizza all for yourself. Cuddle with your dog or cat, and pop in your favorite comedic film. There is no judgment here because it's all about DOING YOU. 

DO SOME INTROSPECTION

A little self-evaluation is always a great idea, and what better day to look at where you've been and where you want to be than Valentines Day? Reflect on how your past loves have made you a better person, celebrate your bravery and strength as a single person, or meditate on what you want in a future partner and put that law of attraction into action. 

TREAT YOURSELF

Stop eyeing that pair of earrings, or those super cute shoes and just buy them! Take yourself out to the nicest restaurant in town and treat yourself to a meal fit for a celebrity. You don't need a partner to feel spoiled, just activate that self-love, and splurge away. It doesn't have to be a super expensive purchase, just something that will make your heart content. 

How are you planning on spending your Valentines Day? Whether you're single or with someone special, we hope that you have an awesome day celebrating all the love that exists in the world. Planning to try any of our suggestions for enjoying the holiday on your own? Comment and let us know! We love hearing from you.
