The Madness of March can’t stop, won’t stop. Oral Roberts won again – but dancing is still outlawed on campus. Robots are going to start delivering Chipotle. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is including fine seafood cuisine in random packages. 

Let’s talk about that whole Cinnamon Toast Crunch thing. Unless you were living under a rock or in a Pineapple under the Sea (where this kind of stuff is normal), you’ve probably heard of Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s hurricane of issues this week. The brand took on a lot of water this week and is sinking. Now, we’ve written plenty about crisis communications HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. So instead of another incredibly informative and helpful blog, here is Serendipit’s list of things we would like to discover in our box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch instead of shrimp tails/mouse droppings. Navigate your cereal purchases carefully.

Serendipit Slack Thread of The Week

 

Shameless (Almost) Client Shoutout Of The Week

We saved Dippin’ Dots this week. We did not, however, land a lifetime supply. Sad.

 

Serendipit Random Radio Song Addition Of The Week

“Song of the Shrimp” – Elvis Presley

Keeping with the seafood theme. The saddest song about a shrimp you’ll ever hear. The little dude shakes his dad’s hand (claw? pincer?), leaves home…then I’m pretty sure he becomes a meal.
