It’s back! Well, it never really left – but I’ll play the comeback card anyway. Friday Quick Hits has returned and this week I’m talking Mom & Pop Marketing and a redux of my favorite childhood computer game, Oregon Trail (truly, something for everyone). Check out the video above (for the first time shot in the brand new Proof office) and follow the links below…

Best thing I read this week:

Creative Marketing for Mom and Pop Shops: In this article, the concept of David (your local mom and pop) competing against Goliath (the Wal Mart and Best Buy’s of the world) is discussed – offering up some creative case studies and opportunities for the little guy to not only compete, but take down the big wigs of the world with a little marketing savvy and ingenuity. (via Fast Company)

Coolest thing I found this week:

Oregon Trail Redux: If you’re looking for a way to waste away at least an hour of your day today (and who isn’t on a Friday?) look no further than this post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested version of everyone’s favorite 90s computer icon, Oregon Trail. Epic is an understatement. (via The Men Who Wear Many Hats)

Get started on your trip to Oregon…just watch out for measles, cholera, and of course, zombies…
