Stephanie Davies is Laughing Cow
Got a cheesy triangle? Need someone to plug it? Call Stephanie Davies.
Laughology’s CEO and Head of Happiness (who loves cheese and lists the triangle as one of her favourite shapes) is so knowledgeable about the science of laughter that she was enlisted by Laughing Cow – purveyors of fine soft cheese shapes – in their recent marketing campaign which extolled the benefits of laughter during lockdown.
Stephanie worked with the Laughing Cow PR team to develop research about how laughter has helped people during the pandemic. Of course, we’ve always known laughter is the best medicine and the research confirmed this.
79% of Brits cited laughter as the thing that got them through lockdown. 55% of Brits had made more effort to do things that made them smile. Laughter (23%) ranked higher than both exercise (19%) and sex (13%) for feel good factor. Over half of those questioned (53%) stated that watching funny videos online brought them light relief, whilst over a third (38%) said they received their laughter fix during virtual calls with friends and family.
We know you’ve been watching our Laughology learning bursts that combine humour and learning. You can see more of them here.
The top 10 ways Brits found laughter were:
Watching funny videos (53%)
