Prison life enters marketing as demand for consumer rebellion rises
Implications - As the cultural attitude toward law breaking becomes more lax with specific regard to media and celebrity culture, trouble with the law and being sent to prison is being rebranded as acceptable, tasteful and even celebratory market-wide. This acceptance of shortcomings welcomes those on the sidelines of society back into relevancy and lowers the standard for acceptable behavior amidst younger generations. A fascination with incarceration signifies a true extension and fruition of the "bad boy" image that has been played up previously, but never idolized in such blatancy. [More]

As concepts of cultural gender shift, beer is reformatted for female drinkers
Implications - The strict gender roles of years past are continuing to be broken down with reversals like women in the workforce and men as homemakers, but a broader cultural shift towards consumers that are less concerned with how they are perceived is giving way to the feminization of the masculine and vice-versa. As such, the rebranding and consumption of beer as a more approachable beverage for women drinkers is taking precedent, and marking a larger cultural shift towards heightened androgyny in products with unnecessarily gendered associations.

As fewer meals are eaten in the company of others and a sedentary lifestyle takes dominance in the mainstream, the concept of food as a consistent friend is creating new correlations that not only strike odd connections, but also create inseparable bonds.
