The most popular Twitter # in all the land this week was #hottestdayoftheyear and brands were quick to capitalise on the hot humour. From cosmetics to crisps all the way to cider and betting, creatives were out en force with their best efforts and here are a few of my favourites:

Now, we may be months and months away from Valentine’s Day but it is the Summer, romance is in the air and a new dating service may be afoot courtesy of Scout Willis. Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ daughter took to Instagram in search of a suitor for her sister Tallulah! Posted on Tallulah’s account, the “ad” is all about finding a “cute person” and features a gmail address where you can register your interest.
Is there anything that Willis named people don’t do in style…?

Ian McKellen Wins At Vine (Too)
Now we are all familiar with Ian McKellen and his Twitter photo antics and we are all familiar with the celebrations that ensued last week after the Supreme Court in the U.S. legalised same sex marriage in all the land. But what do you get if you put two and two together?
The best celebration of all time! McKellen and his “Vicious” co-star Derek Jacobi were truly delightful in their celebrations that even featured a marriage proposal (in jest)! As “We Are the Champions” played in the background. Jacobi popped the question, “Will you marry me?” to which McKellen replies “I will, Derek, and now I can.”
Hurrah to that, enjoy the all the love, the sun and the fun. Ain’t life grand?!
