FRESH FRIDAY FINDS: LEGO Partners with Universal Music, Dave Grohl Surprises ER Nurse, Lizottes Live n Streaming & more

There’s no doubt it’s been another full week of new online events, announcements and fresh releases.

Earlier this week we saw that LEGO and Universal Music Group have announced an exclusive global partnership and Dave Grohl surprised an ER Nurse as a random act of kindness while on Jimmy Kimmel’s Live From His House! show. Today, we woke up to a couple of new releases and some very exciting news from our good friends over at Lizottes Newcastle.

Check out some of our Fresh Friday Finds below.

LEGO & Universal Music Group Announce New Global Partnership

LEGO Group and Universal Music Group on Sunday announced an exclusive global partnership to launch a new suite of music-based LEGO products in 2021. While the article we read didn’t give too much away, it did include a quote from Julia Goldin, CMO of the LEGO Group who said that the partnership will offer children “a whole new way to creatively express themselves by bringing to life music in their own world, their own way.”

We can’t wait to see the results next year and we were just wondering Julia… are you sure it’s only for kids?!

Dave Grohl Surprises ER Nurse

Dave Grohl joined Jimmy Kimmel’s Live From His House! show this week to pull off a random act of kindness. While Kimmel was interviewing a New York emergency nurse, Grohl popped up on the video chat to surprise Nurse TJ Riley. Nurse Riley contracted the virus during his work recently so it was extra heartwarming and awesome to see this act of kindness carried out!
