It seems you can't get away from Ron Burgundy this week. He hosted a newscast in North Dakota. He's starred in Dodge (Yodge) Durango commercials. Ben & Jerry's released the new "Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch" ice cream. This week on ESPN, he interview Payton Manning. And the week isn't over yet...
When it comes to promoting their movie, no one does a better job of Will Ferrell. Whether you think he's the funniest SNL Member of ALL Time or Not, you have to respect his ability to own the media when his movies come out. Even the bad ones...
The new Ron Burgundy-branded Scotch called "Great Odin's Raven Special Reserve" is the best product tie into a movie character ever. For $25 a bottle, the marketer in an online newsletter described the brand as "a great opportunity to sell a high-quality product and embrace a promotional wave spearheaded by one of the funniest characters to hit the big screen in decades." Orders from stores will be shipped with stand-up displays of Ron Burgundy. Classic!

Netflix is back with a pretty cool Christmas commercial that stars a long suffering tree topper with a very familiar voice… see if you can guess who she is. If not, scroll down for the answer.

Scented candles are awesome… when they don't smell like food. I love walking into a room that smells like Christmas Trees to find a Yankee Candle burning on a nearby table. Personally, the "Storm Watch" scent is my favorite but when they discontinued it, I moved on to "Fresh Linen."
Scented candles cross the line in my book when they smell like food. No one wants to come home hungry with a "Christmas Cookie" candle burning in the room. I can't tell you how many times I got up to blow that candle out at my house late at night to fight the urge to grab a snack!
For those who like the obscure scents like "Fresh Cut Grass," you'll enjoy the new scent of Fried Chicken that is being made by Kentucky for Kentucky. They go on sale this Friday… no word if the candlemakers will share their secret recipe.
