The Pepsi United Spicer meme is Twitter at its absolute best, and its most annoyingly derivative
Sean Spicer! Pepsi! United! Tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet.
Man, fuck it.
If you need some witty convoluted explanation as to how we got to this point as a society you’ve come to the absolute wrong place. You get what this is. Some shit happened and everyone made fun of it. Then some other shit happened and some people were like, “bet that other shit is happy that shit happened.” Then some other shit happened, and like four people made three good tweets —then 300,000 other people made the exact same tweet.
Pepsi: How will we get the spotlight off us?
United: Hold my —.
Spicer: No no, step aside boys. I've got this.

United: We’re having a bad week.

Those were some acceptable fine tweets about some current events.
Now here is the same joke approximately 50,000 times over. (Even I made the same dumb tweet, and it sucked.)
