Top 100 Pop Culture Trends in February

From Helpful Digital Detox Patches to Reality TV Show Bars

— February 24, 2019 — Pop Culture
From digital detox to digital embrace, the February 2019 pop culture trends expand on the categories of entertainment, mental health, art, and social media.

The list affirms Instagram as a thriving platform that directs public opinion and embraces voyeuristic entertainment. Among the few noteworthy social media-connected innovations is Imma — yet another computer-generated influencer who was even featured on the cover of 'CGWORLD.' The entity was created by Tokyo-based company ModelingCafe. Other Instagram personalities include the World_Record_Egg which has been utilized as a vehicle for a number of advertising initiatives, including a promotional poster for IKEA's 'TVEKSAM' egg cup and Hulu's mental awareness-boosting Super Bowl commercial.

For those who are a little bit tired of social media, Stupid Studio and Jacob Sørensen also spotlight a cure with digital detox patches.
