The one catch? They have to drive a giant peanut while they do it.<p>The giant Nutmobile is part of a brand campaign by Planters, the snack food company, which has hired the grads as brand ambassadors to drive it around the country. After all, it takes teamwork to maneuver a 27-foot-long, yellow peanut in shopping mall parking lots. But if you think handling the vehicle sounds tough, there's more.<p>"Today, I get to walk in the shoes of a 98-year-old American icon," says Megan Kreuger, one of the Nutmobile's drivers.

What were once permanent, brick-and-mortar stores, where shoppers look at items in a physical space, are now often pop-ups first — shops that last for a limited time only.<p>Pop-up shops are temporary retail spaces that spring up in unused premises. Leases can last as short as a single day, when brands use the spaces for a promotional event instead of testing out a market.<p>"As long as they can change it back, they can do whatever they want," says Joe LaPadula.
