The crisp, more understated nature of Oreo Thins makes them so much easier to pop into and hide in your mouth. But with their bags kept in plain sight, they’re still subjected to getting stolen by little hands.
To ensure adults can have their cookie and eat it too, Oreo has created the ‘OREO THINS Protection Program’, where Oreo Thin packets are sneakily disguised as objects to be slipped into areas kids probably wouldn’t think to look at.
For ultimate stealth, Oreo teamed up with industry experts Ford, Green Giant, Hanes, and Better Homes & Gardens to design the most convincing ‘2022 Maverick Owner’s Manual’, ‘Riced Veggies Cauliflower Medley’, ‘Tagless T-Shirts’, and ‘Cookbook’.
“We figured no one can eat your Thins if they can’t find them!” Oreo describes in a social media post.
Responding to what officials called increased acts of hate in recent years, most notably against Asian-Americans due to the coronavirus pandemic, Los Angeles County on Wednesday announced a campaign aimed at encouraging reporting of such incidents and responding to them.
The “L.A. vs Hate” campaign is a three-pronged effort that will include a marketing outreach campaign encouraging people to report acts of hate, improved resources for residents to report such acts through the county’s 211 hotline and a network of agencies to assist victims and develop prevention strategies.
“L.A. County is one of the most culturally diverse and vibrant communities in the world,” Supervisor Hilda Solis said. “Despite our diversity, these past few years have seen a steady rise in reported hate acts in our county. We also know that as a result of COVID-19, there has been an ugly backlash toward our Asian-Pacific Islander community. Spikes in calls to the 211 hotline reflect that racism.”
Elbee’s unveiling comes after Prospector Pete, the university’s former mascot, was retired in 2018 after years of controversy. According to the student-run campus publication, The Daily 49er, a resolution passed by Associated Students Inc. kickstarted the retirement process by pointing out prospectors’ ties to the colonization of Indigenous communities. The university sits on top of Puvungna, a sacred site for the Tongva people, native of the land.
The Prospector Pete statue was erected in 1967 in the Liberal Arts 5 Plaza and was removed in late June 2020 and there are plans to relocate it to a courtyard in the new alumni center as reported by the Daily 49er.
The university’s team names will not be affected by the change in mascot and intercollegiate athletics program will continue as “Beach Athletics.”
