Hails & Fails – February 4th 2022
This week’s Hails and Fails features a Bridgerton pop-up, your favourite cinema drink making its way home, a polar portal, and even a right royal misspelling….

National press is already speculating what – and who – will be there.
A window on another world
A four tonne immersive portal popped up in London’s Trafalgar Square to transport the capital’s residents to somewhere even chillier than the UK… Antarctica. The portal was created by Greenpeace to highlight that the polar landscape is rapidly vanishing and featured a live broadcast to the continent. Cue what’s on and national coverage, as well as praise from marketing trade media.

It’s off with their heads for discounter Wholesale Clearance which is selling royal merchandise for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee with the celebratory event misspelled as ‘Jubbly’. These products feel more Del Boy than right royal, and we don’t expect the Queen to be dining off them any time soon…
