Jimmy Kimmel Comes Up With The Inappropriate Valentines Going Around The White House

February 15, 2017 Billy 0

All around the world, people are sending gifts, flowers, and cards to one another, going on fancy dates and spending some quality time with the ones they care about the most. Valentine’s Day is criticised in many corners for being a cynical cash grab using the influence of love as a powerful motivator; but outside of the financial implications, Valentine’s Day is a great day for appreciating those who care about you, whether you’re happily single, in a loving relationship, or somewhere in between.

At the moment, Donald Trump’s administration might be very busy making their mark on American government, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have time to celebrate Valentine’s Day. President Trump, however, is unlikely to send a bouquet of roses to Mike Pence, and Kellyanne Conway probably hasn’t sent Hershey’s Kisses to anybody in the White House, but Jimmy Kimmel has given us all a great idea for some White House-themed Valentine’s Day cards.

Nokia Is Re-Launching The 3310, AKA The Best Phone Of All Time

February 15, 2017 Billy 0

Back in the day, the Nokia 3310 was the most epic phone ever. Not only did it have a battery that could last for days, it was also basically indestructible. I’m pretty certain it could be run over by a truck and would still survive. Oh, and Snake. You can’t forget about Snake.

As we entered the mid to late ’00s however, companies like Samsung and Apple began to dominate the phone market. Nokia’s grip started to slip and it eventually withdrew its phones from the market. The days of Snake were dead and buried.

But don’t start tearing up just yet, because Nokia have just made the most exciting announcement of 2017: the 3310 is back. According to newly-leaked reports, the Nokia phone will be making a comeback at the Mobile World Congress in February.

The Musicians Who Get Love On Valentine’s Day

February 15, 2017 Billy 0

Last year, we examined the songs that YouTube viewers are most likely to share on Valentine’s Day. This year, we analyzed musicians who see their biggest viewership increases on Valentine’s Day.

Among all musicians on YouTube, Martina McBride’s music has had the largest increase in views on Valentine’s Day. When compared to an average day on YouTube, her content receives 2.8x more views on Feb 14th.

For example, here are views for McBride’s music over the past two years.

It’s no surprise that fans revisit her music on Valentine’s Day: McBride’s most popular song on YouTube is “Valentine,” with nearly 21M views since the beginning of 2016.

  • Other top 10 artists on Valentine’s Day include Kina Grannis (2.1x higher), Barry White (1.53x higher), Outkast (1.3x higher), and Lionel Richie (1.21x higher).
  • In the U.S., Whitney Houston has the #1 spot for musicians who see the largest increase in views of their music (2.7x). Other artists unique to the U.S. include Chaka Khan (1.7x) and Savage Garden (1.5x).
  • In the U.K., R&B royalty Keith Sweat (1.6x), K-Ci & JoJo (1.5x), and Brian McKnight (1.5x) break into the top 10.

We also looked at musical trends for Valentine’s Day in 2017. While this year will be tough to predict, we’ve noticed a couple surprising insights:
  • David Bowie’s “Valentine’s Day” should continue to rise in popularity. Last year on Valentine’s Day, David Bowie’s untimely passing led his song “Valentine’s Day” to break into the top 10 songs with “valentine” in the title. It surged 400 percent on February 14, 2016, vs. the year prior.
  • When it comes to love songs (songs with “love” in the title), Justin Bieber had the top spot on Valentine’s Day in 2016 with “Love Yourself,” and he’s primed to repeat this feat in 2017. Among all of this year’s songs with “love” in title, DJ Snake’s “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber is the most popular, amassing nearly 200M views since its release.
