Top 100 Pop Culture Ideas in March

From Political Action Figures to Rapper-Guided Training Videos

— March 18, 2016 — Pop Culture
From political action figures to celeb-designed social apps, the March 2016 pop culture trends highlight important developments in both politics and Hollywood.

With the American election heating up, there is a growing interest in content inspired by presidential hopefuls. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has gradually risen to super star status with his own action figure, ice cream flavor and even Valentine's Day cards. Republican candidate Donald Trump also remains a consistent source of inspiration for products such as satirical picture books.

Beyond the realm of politics, the March 2016 pop culture trends reveal a keen interest in unique celebrity ventures. Instead of perfumes and clothing lines, today's celebrities are working on a number of different products. Some noteworthy examples include Kendall and Kylie Jenner's new app, Snoop Dogg's Burger King training video and The Game's hip-hop emojis.
