The Curator News Feed: February 7, 2014

Whoa, what a week, Seattle. Wednesday witnessed the biggest gathering (EVER) in the Emerald City with a whopping 700,000-plus people  downtown to cheer on the Seahawks as they paraded the Lombardi trophy through the streets. It was truly electric to be a part of the historical day. I think I speak for all of us when I say it is truly incredible how this years' team has united 12th man nation, something Seattle sorely needed. We're proud to call Seattle home! Now, without further ado, we present our favorite links of the week (with only a few Seahawks references): These Snacks Taste Sweet as a Bag of Kittens and Puppies in Odd British Ads, AdFreak. So fuzzy. So cute. So mesmerizing. And, so British. What do tiny house pets have to do with cookies? Nothing. Does it matter? Apparently not. This commercial made me "awww," proving yet again the power of puppies and kittens is still alive and well. Sue me! -- Megan

MatchingMonsters.com. I love this project by Brooklyn based art director Jordan Young. Such a simple idea, but one that I'm sure brings a lot of joy to the folks getting "matched" and those just looking.  -- Matthew

How the Super Bowl Turned the NYC Macy's Building Into a Massive Screen, Gizmodo. I'm not ready to wake up from this dream. Just one more Super Bowl story! We're fortunate to work with Macy's. And although we had no part in this New York spectacle, I am very much in awe. Read what it took for the NFL to project the "heat of the game" onto the Herald Square Macy's location. -- Ann Marie
