I mean, the title says it all really…
Katy Perry X Just Eats
This one actually launched several months ago but the mega catchy jingle is trending on TikTok with celebrities and friends lip syncing each hilarious line of the verse. The tune references moments from Perry’s career and mentions a rhyming take out order for everyone from ‘eating a sub in the tub’ to ‘papaya salad while I’m singing a ballad’ and ‘a little sushi while I watch a movie’. A prime example of a successful jingle in 2022.
Chloe Bailey x Pepsi
Pepsi remade another classic musical for its nostalgic “Soda Shop” line of beverages. Following Doja Cat’s viral rendition of “You’re the One That I Want” from “Grease,” singer Chloe Bailey put her spin on the titular song from “Footloose.”
Alone, the modernised version of the Kenny Loggins song is enough to get viewers tapping their toes, but the thrilling spot from agency VaynerMedia and production company London Alley is sure to get anyone busting moves of their own. Fabulously energetic choreography from Hannah Lux Davis and Sean Bankhead plus Bailey’s magnetism at the centre of the over-the-top production make the ad just as exciting as the content it’s served next to—which is saying something since it debuted this month during “Saturday Night Live.”
It’s a million miles from the mega cringe Kendall Jenner collab from several years ago, I can tell you that for free.
LeBron James and Jason Momoa x Nike
Nike is celebrating LeBron James’ 20th season in the NBA by reminding people that despite being 37 years old, James has still got it (also with a new shoe, of course). Starring alongside “Aquaman” actor and mega zaddy Jason Momoa as Father Time, the basketball legend shows that the decades are no match for him in a series of funny social ads. The mini-series, made with agency Wieden+Kennedy, show James competing with a grey-bearded Momoa in various trials of strength. A recent spot showed the two stars pushing weights across his backyard while his sons and young basketballer Judea “Juju” Watkins watch on—but only James can see Momoa. As he heckles an invisible Father Time, the teens all comment that he’s “getting weird.”
Bad Bunny x Adidas
It seems as if everything Papi…sorry, I mean Bad Bunny, touches turns to gold. Benito continued his Adidas collaboration with the latest iteration of the blue-tint Bad Bunny Forum sneakers.

Oh and bye Kanye!

Martha Stewart x Liquid Death
Following her appearance on last week’s Kardashians episode, Martha Stewart has officially resorted to dismembering human beings for Halloween. Liquid Death recruited the homemaker icon, who has become an unlikely favourite for edgy ads, to sell a festive novelty candle. A hyper-realistic replica of a severed hand holding a can of Liquid Death water, a laugh-out-loud spot reveals the amazing detail achieved by slicing real appendages.
