A negative review, the world’s most popular song, and cool website generator — this is Friday Finds, your dose of stories making the rounds in the internet this week.
1. How Legend’s 2-Star Review Made It on the Movie’s Poster
A movie critic at The Guardian disliked the movie Legend and gave it 2 stars.
And guess how the movie’s marketing department designed the movie poster to show this sans hurting promotions. (Hint: Tom Hardy’s ear.)
Clever move, marketing department.
