Top Brand Partnerships in Space Jam: A New Legacy

Posted by Chelsea Collins on October 13, 2021 at 9:19 AM

Space Jam: A New Brand Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy should really have been called Space Jam: The Film We All Needed After The Craziest Year We’ve Ever Had. Releasing both theatrically and on HBO Max for the first 30 days of its premiere, the movie proved to be both family and COVID-friendly. The film was super fun and entertaining, which is why it’s no surprise that the accompanying brand partnerships were equally fun and entertaining. They were creative and some of them truly out of the box – like the $100,000 watch. 

Though the film is competing with some major summer blockbusters (Black Widow, Suicide Squad, Snake Eye: G.I. Joe Origins), it’s tough to beat the combination of LeBron James and a 90’s classic riddled with nostalgia. And from a marketing perspective, let us tell you that Warner Brothers has been BUSY. Poised to release in 2019, thanks to traditional film delays combined with COVID, the studio had even more time than usual to bring partnerships to life. The film has over 200 brand collaborations supporting it! Below is a sprinkle of some of our favorites. In this blog, Hollywood Branded takes a dive into our favorite brand partnerships with Warner Brothers’ Space Jam: A New Legacy.

How TikTokers Are Building Brands Outside Of Social Media

Posted by Skander Ayachi on October 8, 2021 at 8:00 AM

Is There a Life After TikTok?

Despite how popular and important social media has become in the modern world, it is still constantly evolving and growing. Over the last few years, social media has led to the creation of the internet celebrity (or influencer). Due to the concept of online fame still being in its infancy, there is still a lot to learn about it. However, one thing we do know is that, in most cases, internet fame is temporary. Many people skyrocket to popularity on platforms like TikTok only to experience that fame for a brief period of time.

However, many influencers are aware of the volatile nature of online celebrity and have ventured out to build brands outside of their online platforms and even social media, entirely. Influencers with some of the largest followings on TikTok, such as Addison Rae, Bella Porche, and the D’Amelio sisters, are key examples of that. In this blog, Hollywood Branded outlines the ways in which TikTok’s biggest names are building brands outside of social media.
