Team Britney

In my Media Literacy class we are learning all about product placement and branding in the media. For homework, we had to watch a video about the two subjects and write a reflection on it. One of the examples given in the video was Britney Spears and how she was branded with Pepsi. This reminded me of my grade school days.

In about second grade, my class had a fierce rivalry between the people who were Team Britney Spears and Team Christina Aguilera. I of course was on Team Britney. When the Pepsi commercials came out with Britney, I remember half the class only drinking Pepsi and some of the others drinking Coca-Cola. We kept this rivalry up for years until both sides lost interest and found new artists.

But, the assignment reminded me of how good Pepsi was at branding! Even today I have a preference for Pepsi and think of the songs in the commercials from when I was younger! I thought it was funny that I had an assignment that let me reminiscence on my childhood! What makes it even better is that Pepsi also sponsors The X Factor, my new favorite show!

This is one of the Pepsi commercials I remember from being younger!

The Busy Week Continues….

Last night the College Democrats organization had dinner at the advisor’s home. It was good to finally have a home cooked meal in college and it was a great experience to have. We discussed various political and social issues and ate Greek and Middle Eastern food. Many students from small schools boast that they have had dinner at a teacher’s house and I can now finally say the same!

I have a lot of assignments this week. They include: a Spanish test, writing a paper for Irish Literature (FYS), reading for Chemistry, and write and conduct an interview with a Butler faculty member for my writing class. I’m going to try to get as much of it done tonight but I am really excited for the new episode of Glee tonight so I will have a limited time to do it. It is the new Britney Spears episode and it is supposed to be good. Some of my friends are supposed to come to my dorm so we can all watch it together!

That’s all for today!
