Bored in quarantine? These brands are making life at the crib easier

Here’s something we can all agree on… Being stuck in quarantine is type trash. Still, we have to make an effort to stay inside as much as possible.

But, how Sway? You’ve chilled in almost every part of the crib, popping out for a walk around the block has gotten boring, and face timing your homies seems to be the highlight of your day.

It can be lonely, we know.

However, there are several of our favorite brands holding it down. From free Netflix to free daily live streams of concerts, these brands are giving us the entertainment we need in quarantine.

1. Popeyes Fried Chicken N Chill

Dedicated to giving us more than their delicious chicken sandwich, Popeyes has doubled down with the blessings.

Earlier this week Popeyes challenged their fried chicken fans to throw up the hashtag #ThatPasswordFromPopeyes with a photo of themselves enjoying their fave Popeyes bites.

In return, the beloved southern brand dished out their Netflix username and password. Nothing like being embraced by the Popeyes fam.
