Adieu. Corona’s recent commercial shows that relaxation means different things to different people. While Snoop Dogg and Karol G, both musicians, find ultimate relaxation by reclining in beach chairs, gazing at the ocean and savoring cans of Corona Extra, comedian Andy Samberg struggles to fully let go of the idea that there might be something else to explore. As a result, he “Adieu” to the group and enters into a trance-like state.
Boban Hand. Goldfish’s commercial shows Boban Marjanović when he encounters Tobias Harris at the gym and spots him munching on Goldfish snacks. Boban eagerly offers his assistance and brings out his personal Boban hand dish. He then transfers the remaining Goldfish from Tobias' pack to his dish, before returning it to Tobias while singing "Here comes Boban hand."

BNPL in grocery. Buy now, pay later (BNPL) services are gaining popularity among grocery shoppers, with retailers such as Kroger and Albertsons launching their own BNPL programs.

BNPL services are seen as a way to increase customer loyalty and boost sales, particularly among younger shoppers who are more likely to use them.
