Later this week, The Codebreakers take a deeper look at why “Frozen” in particular, but also Disney Princesses in general, have been such a powerful and successful thing.  As always, tune in to see if there are lessons to be learned for making your own content and marketing more memetic, and more viral…

Originally shared by The Codebreakers

The Codebreakers tackle the latest incarnation(s) of  the Princess Paradigm this Wednesday, Dec. 10th at 10a Mountain / 9a Pacific / 12p Eastern. 

As with many Disney films, Frozen is the story of princesses who live in a world dramatically different from ours. They face hard times, but survive them with pluck and good humor….and the inevitably perfect hair 😉

The emblematic song “Let It Go” has gotten close to a cumulative 1 billion YouTube views (over several versions) and let’s not even mention the multitude of merchandise that is coming out “just in time for the holidays.”

Clearly, there’s something here that resonates with tons of people. But what is it?

Does our desire for happily ever after, rainbows and unicorns, and pretty pink castles help things go viral? Is this because women are making most of the buying decisions, or because today’s parents have a hard time saying “no” in general? Is it harmless and fun, or has the fight for equality between the sexes been undermined by this tradition?

Join us as we discuss the Princess Paradigm and what makes it a viral force to reckon with in our culture.

This week we’re talking about the virility of The Walking Dead

Zombies have been around for a long time so why do we love the show The Walking Dead so much? Why’s it catching on like wildfire? Why hasn’t it just blended into the background like many other zombie/apocalyptic fads?
