Pringles Pickle Rick Flavor

For the 2020 Super Bowl, Pringles is returning for the third year in a row, but this time in partnership with the biggest pop culture hit around, Adult Swim’s award-winning series Rick and Morty.

Known for its bold flavors, playful nature and endless stacking possibilities, Pringles will this year test the limits with Rick and Morty, in a humorous, mind-bending animated spot. And because of the intense fandom around Rick and Morty, the partnership will feature a  flavor of their very own. 

To pay homage to the viral hit episode “Pickle Rick”—in which mad scientist Rick Sanchez turns himself into a pickle to avoid family therapy—Pringles is launching a special edition, collectable Pickle Rick flavor inspired from the award-winning series. These crisps hit shelves coast to coast timed around the Big Game, but only in our universe. Pick up Pringles Pickle Rick crisps in the snack aisle of grocery stores nationwide beginning in early February and don’t miss the Pringles Big Game ad in the second quarter.

Watch The Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Trailer 

Larry David is back – as Larry David – stumbling through one faux-pas after another in an all-new season of the award-winning, hit comedy series.

As candid, unsparing and outrageous as ever, Curb Your Enthusiasm revolves around a fictionalized, gleefully misanthropic version of David as a ubiquitous camera chronicles the private, often banal world of this (relatively) public man. The series continues to prove how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life – a cold cup of coffee, a stained shirt, a missing toothbrush – can precipitate a chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. To keep the narrative spontaneous, the series is shot without a script and cast members are given scene outlines and often improvise lines as they go.

Returning series regulars include Emmy nominee Larry David (“Seinfeld”), Susie Essman (“Broad City”), Jeff Garlin (“The Goldbergs”), Emmy nominee Cheryl Hines (“Suburgatory”), Richard Lewis (“Anything But Love”) and JB Smoove (“The Millers”).

Curb Your Enthusiasm returns for its tenth season Sunday, January 19 at 10:30PM.

In the spirit of the holiday season, the mysterious Banksy stenciled a couple of white reindeer directly next to a bench in Birmingham, England, so it appeared like they were attached. The reindeer look like they’re ready to take flight and bring both the bench and the sleeping man along for the ride.

The artist stated that this installation was to bring awareness to the homelessness issue that has been growing around the area.

TIME Announces The 2019 Person of The Year

Time magazine has chosen Greta Thunberg, a Swedish climate crisis activist, as person of the year.

Thunberg, 16, is the youngest individual to be recognized. She gained international attention for excoriating world leaders for their inaction in the climate crisis in a viral speech she made at the UN Climate Action Summit in September. 

Time also announced winners of four new categories. Athlete of the year is the US women’s soccer team, entertainer of the year is Lizzo and business person of the year is Disney CEO Bob Iger. After recognizing “The Guardians” last year, Time created a new category to recognize a different group of “Guardians” — those who took to the stand and risked their careers in the defense of the rule of law. The public servants in this category include the whistleblower, Marie Yovanovitch, Ambassador William Taylor, Fiona Hill, Lieut. Colonel Alexander Vindman and Mark Sandy.
