Top 100 Pop Culture Ideas in August

From Comedian-Voiced Transit to Actor-Approved Headphones

— September 2, 2018 — Pop Culture
With celebrities lending their name and talents to everything from headphones to the voice of city transit, the August 2018 pop culture trends reveal that there is no escaping the influence of celebs in everyday life.

On the one hand, celebrities continue to endorse and collaborate with brands on a wide variety of consumer products. As the August 2018 pop culture trends reveal, some of the most recent celebrity products include sport-centric headphones endorsed by The Rock, Chrissy Teigen-approved body oil, and 12-pound gummy candy sneakers promoted by James Harden.

Of course, not all celebrity collaborations are for everyday products. For instance, comedian Seth Rogan announced that he will be lending his voice-acting talents to the Vancouver public transit system, TransLink.
