Year In Review- 2015

By K.Camillo

Three Best Marketed Companies of 2015

1. Nike

2. Under Armour

3. Pepsi

Explanation: Under Armour has had the biggest improvement out of their competitors (Nike and Adidas). Especially because of the emergence of Jordan Spieth and Steph Curry. These two male athletes has greatly helped under armour make leaps and bounds in the golf and basketball world.Nike continues to lead the world of athletic wear and gear. They have consistently done this due to the fact that they have such a wide variety of gear for many sports. They do indeed market the versatility of their brand by including many different athletes in their commercials. Pepsi as always is a good marketed company. Many of their commercials include regular people having fun and socializing. Also a major marketing move was the appearance of the company within the popular show Empire.

Best Two Products

1. Drones

2. Xbox One

Explanation: Drones have appealed to the child inside many adults who still pursue fun hobbies such as flying a pretty sophisticated drone. Also, what kid doesn't love remote control helicopters? The design of this product is just new and exciting.

Worst Two Products

1. Sony Walkman NW-ZX2

2. Swegway

Explanation: The Sony Walkman originally came out in 1979. Throughout the years Sony has made technological advances with this device to keep up with the ever changing needs of society. The advancement of phones and free music apps such as youtube, spotify, etc. has left music specific handheld devices nearly obsolete. The swegway has caught on quite well especially with the younger generations but, more and more injuries are being linked to accidents on this little device. Also, many cheaper quality versions are being produced and these versions are catching on fire and exploding while being charged.

Top Two Movies

1. Star Wars The Force Awakens

2. Creed

Explanation: These two very successful movies have something in common. Both are continuations of a series or movies before them. This makes these movies easily popular because of the already large fan base from their predecessors. Creed keys in on the pride of Philadelphia and gives a little bit of a love story with the classic underdog story of the other Rocky movies. Star Wars The Force Awakens being the latest addition to the star wars movies has broken many box office records and may take title as #1 movie of all-time.

Top Two Artists

1. Fetty Wap

2. Future

Explanation: These two very good artists share something in common that I believe made them so popular and successful this year. The original sound that they have in terms of their voices. Fetty Wap also put a stamp on his songs that let everyone know it's a Fetty Wap production.
