Posted by Alexa Mancilla on January 19, 2022 at 8:00 AM

Ghostface is Watching 

For those of you who aren't horror film buffs, it might seem a bit shocking to hear that the Scream franchise is back — and scarier than ever. The cult classic film series is a meta horror-slasher franchise starring Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette as they, along with other recurring characters work to catch — and survive — the succession of murderers who adopt the persona of Ghostface as he brutally kills members of the Woodsboro, CA community. 

Ghostface, and his subsequent Scream 5 film, has returned with a vengeance, and Paramount is ready to showcase his wrath. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses one of the unorthodox marketing tactics behind the newest film in the Scream franchise.

Top Fast-Food Celebrity Partnerships

Posted by Chelsea Collins on January 18, 2022 at 8:00 AM

Fast Food For Thought

Ironically enough, it seems that celebrity’s fast-food campaigns have become the new ‘Got Milk’ campaign. Rising in popularity after Michael Jordan’s stellar McDonald’s campaign in 1992, this type of partnership kind of took a dip due to the strain it put on many of these QSR’s. Most partnerships were marked by custom meals that cost the chains millions of dollars to implement quickly and efficiently.

However, in recent years we’ve seen an uptick again as America’s favorite restaurants have figured out new ways of bringing these partnerships and new benefits (app downloads and merch collaborations) to life. In this blog, Hollywood Branded takes a look at some of our top fast-food celebrity partnerships.
