We turned all the Super Bowl commercial hashtags into one beautiful poem
The words flow like sponsored messages down a river of content.
Only half of this year’s Super Bowl commercials included hashtags, a surprise decrease from 57 percent in 2014. Don’t fret, though: Advertisers in search of social media buzz still dropped 25 forgettable catchphrases in a vain attempt to start a conversation about their brands.
As with those profound Tumblr email subject lines, there was only one suitable course of action here: assemble the lot into a poem.
Allow us to proudly present “Left Shark.”
One bold choice: eat a Snickers
Hello future it’s that easy
make safe happen with dad, go daddy
make it happy, sorta
Empowering uncarrier, up for anything
Wi-Fi calling first draft ever
The big race: Lexus RC,
Lexus NX, 500X
Real strength—Kim’s data stash
Best buds win at glue like a girl
Stay powerful, Doritos
Memo to the NFL: Engrave this on the Vince Lombardi Trophy whenever you get the chance.
