Top 80 Pop Culture Trends in March

From Expletive-Playing Dog Collars to Sci-Fi Exercise Guides

— March 31, 2020 — Lifestyle
The March 2020 pop culture round-up really showcases how prominent science fiction is for many consumers. The list calls attention to a Star Trek-themed fitness guide (playfully titled 'Body by Starfleet'), an interactive robotic Baby Yoda toy, the Mandalorian LEGO Razor Crest playset, and two brand new Rick and Morty-inspired activations—one is a collaboration with Krispy Kreme that brings the Pickle Rock donut, the Simple Rick's Wafer Cookie, and some other goodies to consumers, and the other is a Rick and Morty Pringles ad.

It is worthy to note that all of these examples are inspired by cult-favorite movies and TV series, signifying that a lot of the trends in pop culture actually come from the medium of film.
