Go PowerPuff Yourself!

In the digital era, animated series have been creating games where users can customize their own avatar to spread awareness of their show.  These avatar games provide clothing and accessories to dress up their customizable character.  Comedy Central released the South Park avatar page where you can create a personal South Park avatar.  Cartoon Network recently released a Powerpuff Girls avatar game called Powerpuff Yourself.

The Powerpuff Girls premiered on Cartoon Network in November 18th, 1998.  The series centers around superheroes Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup in the city of Townsville.  Buttercup, Blossom, and Bubbles are called in by the mayor to help fight crime in the city.  Their father, professor Utonium, takes care of girls after a hard day of fighting evil villains.


With the reboot of a new season, Cartoon Network created the Powerpuff Yourself app on powerpuffyourself.com.  After viewing various avatars on Facebook, I decided to check out the popular app.  You work with a dummy body who has no clothing or hair in the beginning of the game.  The avatar could be female or male and you can change their skin tone to be either lighter or darker.  There are various pair of eyes to give for your character.  Some eyes include evil eyes, heart eyes, eyes with rainbows, stars, skulls on fire, and even cute puppy-dog eyes.  Color choices for your character’s eyes could be black, blue, brown, purple, pink, and grey.


Once you give your character some vision, you’ll want to find a mouth to go with your avatar.  Some humorous ideas could be having him/her stick your tongue out, make a kissy face, or even slapping on some braces to make them be a teenager!  There were different kinds eyewear to choose from, including a virtual-reality headset that wraps around their head.  Once you give your character a face, you’ll want to choose a hairstyle for your boy or girl avatar.  If you don’t want to give them any hair, you could make them bald if you choose to!  Other than regular hair, there are different beard/mustache combos to give your character some facial hair.


Now that you are done crafting your avatar’s head, it’s time to shop for virtual clothes!  You can choose many tops and bottoms for your character to wear.  Once you have them fully clothed, you can choose some accessories to spruce up your avatar.  Choose from accessories such as a skateboard, pets, or even musical instruments for them to play!  You can even pierce their ears to give them diamonds or hoop ring earrings.  If earrings and hair aren’t that interesting to you, baseball caps always make a good choice.  After carefully crafting your avatar, you can now choose their background to live in.  Background ideas range from forest to pink room of hearts.  Let your imagination run wild with this cute avatar game!

My character I created has short blonde hair and is sporting a 5 O’ clock shadow.  He has grey evil eyes and has a wicked grin on his face.  His clothing style include a black leather jacket with a white T-Shirt tucked underneath.  Underneath his jacket are blue shorts and yellow shoes for walking around the forest background.


Playing around with the Powerpuff Yourself app was a lot of fun!  There were so many customizable features for creating your avatar.  What’s interesting was that the avatar game was gender neutral so you could give your male soccer player a tutu and diamond earrings.  Once you complete your powerpuff avatar, you can download your avatar as a wallpaper or GIF.  Friends can even share their creation on Facebook or Twitter to show off their avatar creativity.


This whole avatar app was sparked by anticipation of the rebooted season of The Powerpuff Girls that premiered on April 4th.  News of the new season broke the internet after the surprise announcement by Cartoon Network.  Creating this avatar game was an amazing PR idea for Cartoon Network to raise awareness of the rebooted series.  Fans of the classic animated series can connect with each other through the Powerpuff Yourself app.  Anyone who is a fan of the series should unleash their avatar creativity on this game.


Gronk Spikes Instagram

If you’re a Patriots fan, you know that Rob Gronkowski is one of the most well-known players of the team.  He’s one of the best tight end players with a flourishing brand name.  Some of his infamous PR stunts include endorsing Dunkin’ Donuts, creating a brand of frosted corn flakes named Gronk Flakes, and even posing for the camera with cuddly kittens.  Gronk fans can be excited for his newest social media venture: Instagram.


Gronkowski officially joined the Instagram bandwagon earlier this week and he doesn’t disappoint!  His first 1-minute video showcases his life during the off-season months.  The video includes clips of him working out at the gym, completing swimming exercises by the pool, getting a haircut, and even partying with his pals at the bar.


Rob Gronkowski was drafted into the New England Patriots in 2010.  He set the single-season record for most touchdowns by a tight end in the next year.

Other than Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski is one of the most entertaining players to follow.  His last entertaining stunt featured him and David Ortiz sing a country song about Dunkin’ Donuts Ice Coffee.  Gronkowski isn’t shy when it comes to making cameos for TV and films.  He appeared with wide-receiver Julian Edelman for the Entourage movie in June 3rd, 2015.  Besides his random cameos on the screen, Rob Gronkowski posed in a photo shoot with cuddly kittens back in December 2014.


It’s important to note that he isn’t just doing these appearances for a salary.  Gronkowski is a charitable player who co-created the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation, a charity he and his family created to host events and create concepts to generate funds for benefitting youth charities.  His next event will be The One Mission Buzz Off for Kids With Cancer where he will shave his head at Gillette Stadium to honor kids with cancer.  All proceeds will be donated toward kids fighting cancer.


With all of his entertaining campaigns, Rob Gronkowski would be considered social media gold in the public relations world.  Gronkowski’s brand as a Patriots player is constantly flourishing with each creative campaign he is endorsed in.  His ‘box of rocks’ personality makes him the most likable and positive person for the Patriots.
