Let’s get Weird!

So here we are in the middle of award shows. We just had the Grammys and now we are preparing for the Oscars. We know that some of the things we are going to see at these events are the designer gowns, crazy hairstyles, and death-defying shoes. We all know who most of the winners are going to be at these events: it will be the new and hip people on the scene, or possibly a singer/actor who has made a comeback in the industry. But what about the unsung heroes that are always there? Who are those people that are really good at what they do, but never seem to make it? One of the biggest unsung heroes is “Weird Al” Yankovic. He has been on the music scene since 1976 and has been making comedy music like “Bob”, “Born this way”, and “Amish Paradise”, just to name a few.

He has been nominated for comedy awards 14 times, but only twice has he ever won. Even with only two wins, he just keeps on writing and performing his amazing parodies. This is what people should look for when choosing a brand. You want to research and look for a brand that has been around and survived throughout the years; brands that are secure and responsible. You can go out and try the newest brands, but because of their newness, they might not last. Then you have those brands that are trying to revamp themselves because they are on their last leg. Just like “Weird Al,” we all love those brands that have given us the best products and services for years and that we know we can rely on. This is something to keep in mind when you are looking at all the brands that will show up this year at the award shows.
