This is why companies shouldn't try to make memes
@PrismSimon, it pains me to see them use memes incorrectly. At least do minor research into how it’s used. Reminds me of the meme where the guy is like “hello fellow kids” pretending to be young.
@2807Ollie, "the guy" that's motherfvcking Steve Buscemi you uncultured swine
@Spilled Milk, ah I’m sorry I couldn’t remember who it was! Please don’t shun me senpai I’m sorry *kneels before you* punish me how you must...
@PrismSimon, If context is required, there is a hairstyle popular among the British working class youth nicknamed the Meet Me At McDonalds (characterised by shaved back and sides and long hair on top). It has been banned by some schools, this garnering attention from the media (I heard about it in the Daily Telegraph). Regardless, this meme is unfunny.
@PrismSimon, Wendy's begs to differ
@KingofFunnypics, I still think that we only find them funny because their mascot is thicc af
@PrismSimon, I SMELL HERESY
@2807Ollie, kinda ironic because if you did a little research into this, you’d find there’s a haircut in the UK nicknamed the “Meet Me at McDonald’s.”
Not saying you’re supposed to find it funny or anything, but there’s definitely a logical connection with the meme that McDonald’s chose to capitalize on.
This was on Reddit a few weeks ago, and it was crazy how many people totally shjt on it without taking a second to try and understand it. Not saying this is what you were doing, but it’s sad to see how ignorance can have such a loud, confident voice. It’s like those grammar nazis correcting and insulting people while being grammatically incorrect themselves (ultimate pet peeve of mine).
@PrismSimon, it may be dumb, but it gets you thinking about McDonald's.
If anyone doesn’t get it - there’s a style of haircut (shaved at the sides, curly mess on top) currently favoured amongst teenagers of lower socioeconomic groupings in the UK, which is referred to as the ‘meet me at McDonalds’ because of their choice of hangout.
@Nellybert , interesting. I mean sad for humanity, but interesting
@Not him again, When I was a teenager, I don’t remember us naming haircuts. Is this a new thing, or was I just as out of touch with youth culture then as I am now?
@Nellybert , you're asking the wrong person bro. When I was a teenager, the only haircuts with names were bowlcut, mohawk, mullet, and dreads. End of list.
@Not him again, Sounds about right. Unless you count ‘side-parting’ as a name for a haircut.
@Nellybert , even as a woman, most of our haircuts didn't have names. Hairstyles though, that's a different story
Ba ba ba ba baaaa im losing it.
It’s like watching a young buck trying to walk for the first time
This seems like an attempt of outrage marketing - where people get angry at meme misuse, but share the ad because of it.
