Fans at Work – Some Updates
Posted by VersusTheFans
Here are some updates on some fan-related missions: Update on that E! shipping poll, a little bit about Naya Rivera’s Super Bowl M&M commercial, and the Brittana fandom’s continued mission.
First, the E! online poll discussed here has reached the next round. There are now 8 couples left. Sadly, Grey’s Anatomy’s Calzona didn’t make it through, but both Brittany & Santana and Lauren & Bo made it through.
It’s also interesting to note that “the big 3” from Glee (Brittana, Klaine and Finchel) made it into this next round. The Glee fandom has a VERY strong social media presence, so I guess this isn’t surprising.
The current results are below, and you can vote here (vote for the lesbian ships!) until this Wednesday. It looks like it’s going to be close all the way around.
Next, if you were watching the Super Bowl last night, you may have caught Naya Rivera’s commercial for M&M’s. If not, here it is below…
The M&M commercial was part of several polls in which people could vote for their favorite Super Bowl commercials (The M&M commerical was great all around, and it’s place at the top is well-deserved.) Naya Rivera’s fandom helped place the M&M commercial in the top three of many of these polls. (Naya’s Fandom also gave themselves a little shout out too.)
The passion of a fan base really makes a difference; passion trumps quantity every time. Naya Rivera has one of those super passionate fandoms, thanks to her role as lesbian character, Santana, on Glee.
And finally, as Glee is galloping into their Santana-centric Diva episode this Thursday, which promises to have some sort of Brittana action, the Brittana fandom is not giving up, not even an inch. Below is an updated list of Brittana Twitter trends. 24 trends and counting.
And that is your fan update!
