NPower is showing off it’s green credentials with a tongue-in-cheek mockumentary in which the utilities provider rebrands 2000’s boy band Blue as ‘Green’ as part of a blind embrace of all things sustainable.

Launched to help raise awareness of the energy suppliers Go Green tariff the promo aims to communicate to viewers that their own Green efforts need not be as cringeworthy as Blue’s.

The piece reunites all four band members brought together by their new ‘manager’ to be informed of their new identity, which comes with the added benefit of being able to recycle old tracks.

Duncan James of boyband Blue Green comments: “We are delighted to be making our debut as ‘Green’ and doing a special gig with NPower to support the Go Green tariff.

We know our fans will ‘all rise’ to the challenge and ‘breathe easy’ this winter knowing their energy needs are taken care of.”

Andy Wiggans, commercial and marketing director at NPower, comments: “Going Green does not need to be as awkward as Antony’s “uncle” makes it for Blue.

Editor’s note: A version of this post by Yiling Pan first appeared on Jing Daily, the leading digital publication on luxury consumer trends in China.

As the concept of “going cashless” heats up in Chinese society, the country’s two leading mobile payment giants, WeChat Pay and Alipay, have pushed out marketing campaigns to further promote their respective payment apps to be the top destination for Chinese consumers looking to settle their cashless deals.

On July 31, Alipay (under Alibaba Group) announced that it was naming the week beginning August 1 “Cashless Week”; on the same day, WeChat Pay (under Tencent Holdings) picked one day—August 8—and declared it “Cashless Day,” and also nicknamed the entire month “Cashless Month.”

During the campaign period, both apps provide consumers with a massive amount of “real money” incentives (offered by Alibaba, Tencent, and merchants who work with them) in order to reward them for going cashless shopping and, most importantly, for settling deals with their apps.

Alipay users who spend at least two yuan per deal between August 1-3 have the chance to be rewarded with 0.88 – 4,888 yuan (roughly $0.13 – $728).

These rewards are cumulative and can be used in the future.

The announcement was made by, you guessed it, fax.

This is no surprise because Japan is one of the few places on Earth where fax machines continue to be widely used.

This is why seemingly every year, for the past few years, the international press has written articles on Japan s love affair with fax machines for example, here, here, here and here .

Note that AFP reports that they also continue to be used internationally in businesses such as banking and real estate.

Honestly, it should also come as no surprise that SMAP s talent agency, Johnny & Associates, sent out the announcement via fax.

Which is why Japanese news show Mr. Sunday noted that the press release was sent out by fax as a simple fact but didn t question WHY THE HELL it was sent out via fax machine.

The band's video for its single "IDOL" earned a record 45 million views in the first 24 hours of its release, beating out the 2017 debut of Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do," which earned 43.2 million views in 24 hours, YouTube said.

Ever wish the Backstreet Boys had a little more spice?

Today is your lucky day.

Doritos is attempting to do just that with its 30-second Super Bowl spot (and an extended 60-second cut, which also dropped today).

Doritos paired the boy band with Chance the Rapper for an odd, but strangely satisfying, hip-hop rendition of the Backstreet Boys’ hit, “I Want It That Way.”

Doritos highlights its new Flamin’ Hot Nacho flavor in the spot and felt that picking musical acts from two totally different genres and eras was the best way to sell the new product.

The spot opens on Chance the Rapper sitting in an empty airplane hangar with a bag of the new Flamin’ Hot Nacho Doritos.

The four dancers initially looked like NSYNC.

Before Justin Timberlake performed in the Super Bowl halftime show, there was rampant speculation that boy band NSYNC would reunite on stage.

For a brief moment, Timberlake was surrounded by four dancers who bore some resemblance to his former bandmates.

They turned out to just be random dancers, leading to an overall feeling of disappointment about Timberlake's halftime performance.

Destiny's Child reunited in a past Super Bowl halftime performance by Beyonc é.

If we look back to the dawn of the smartphone, one of the main draws was their GPS chips and ability to offer on-the-go navigation.

And let’s not forget that this process has been and continues to be repeated in countries all over the world.

Whether you’re selected a destination from search results or an address, the map shows you the destination on the map as well as reviews (if it’s a business), the amount of time it would take you to travel there, the ability to learn more about the destination, and a big blue button that says “DIRECTIONS” that will begin plotting your route.

If you tap the vertical ellipses button to open up the options menu from the top-right corner, you’ll see toggles for different map views, including satellite (replaces the standard map appearance with satellite images), terrain (overlays a topographical map over the existing roadmap), and traffic (adds color-coded traffic details to all roads instead of just the ones you’re traveling).

Even something as simply as being able to choose different modes of travel — via car, bus/public transport, walking, and biking — is a thoughtful addition that really expands that potential use cases for Google Maps.

For instance, it’s gained some pretty robust offline functionality, asking you for your permission to download a chunk of the map (amounting to your general vicinity) or to save trips to local storage so you can pull them up without a data connection; the idea is to prevent Google Maps from being completely crippled when you don’t have an internet connection, a problem inherent with all navigation apps.
