Scumbag Steve cashes in on Brisk promotion
Brisk thinks you might buy iced tea if Scumbag Steve is doing the shilling.
The Pepsi Co. owned company is using Blake Boston’s now iconic image macro in a new ad campaign for Imgur, reported TechCrunch.
Creative agency Mekanism designed the ads, and a spokesperson told TechCrunch “the look and message was carefully considered, going through round after round of revisions.”
Funny, it looks exactly like any other Scumbag Steve image macro to us, down to the font choice. The one subtle difference is that while most Steve macros highlight douchey behavior, these promote Brisk instead.
It’s a much better deal for Boston than a previous Pepsi Co. commercial that used his likeness. In the previous campaign, which Boston was not paid for, another actor dressed and acted like Scumbag Steve while drinking a Pepsi Next.
“Pepsi, you are beyond fucking retarded,” zombiereznov wrote. “Use the real Scumbag Steve.”
Did Pepsi Co. listen to the fans, and is the Brisk deal payment for their prior poor treatment of Boston?
“I have no idea,” Boston tweeted.
