22 Design Fails By Dummies Who Only Had One Job

We get that sometimes mistakes get made. Even very embarrassing mistakes where people laugh at you for years. That's just a normal part of life. 

Where we draw this line of empathy, however, is when brands f*ck up so royally that one can't help but do a double-take. If you're still not on our side here, just think about how each of these designs likely had to go through multiple levels of editor-approval before being printed! Yikes...

Steak-Umm Serves Up A Surprisingly Insightful Twitter Thread About These Difficult Times

Welcome to late-stage capitalism. Brands are becoming self-aware. Their attention helps our egos on Twitter and beyond. We're used to this now. But somehow, the @Steak-umm account has managed to pleasantly surprise us with a Twitter thread that is actually incredibly helpful in these incredibly confusing and stressful times. 

The frozen thin-sliced steak company took to Twitter on Monday, cautioning the world against coronavirus misinformation. 

"friendly reminder in times of uncertainty and misinformation: anecdotes are not data. (good) data is carefully measured and collected information based on a range of subject-dependent factors, including, but not limited to, controlled variables, meta-analysis, and randomization. outliers attempting to counter global consensus around this pandemic with amateur reporting or unverified sourcing are not collecting data. breaking news stories that only relay initial findings of an event are not collecting data. we have to be careful in our media consumption"

The thread doesn't end there. And it warns passionately against allowing our minds to absorb the constant and often unreliable narrative of fear that we're being fed. It promotes science. While the idea of a frozen steak brand becoming a sort of misinformation watchdog may seem absurd, take a look around you. The world is a freaky place. Sanity, even from a meat-interested social media manager, is incredibly valuable.

Brands & Trolls Embrace Destructive 'Don't Have A Bookmark' Memes

An ancient meme from @shitheadsteve about using ketchup as a bookmark has started a serious Twitter trend almost three years later. The meme seems to have kicked off with a goofy tweet from Chex Mix, suggesting using their snack food as a way to keep your place while reading. Brands such as Vitamin Water and Steak-umm quickly followed suit with their own destructive bookmark ideas. While the trending meme is ruffling the feathers of serious book nerds, far more people are having their own goofy fun. Here are some of our favorite shitty bookmark life hacks. Just don't use them on your first editions.

15 Memes That Roast Brands When Pride Month Ends

For the past few years, nearly every brand has been quick to incorporate the Pride flag into its logo as soon as June 1st rolls around, and then just as quickly abandon it once we hit July. 

One could probably make the argument that many companies only show their support for Pride because it's good for business and not necessarily because they care about the LGBTQ community, and that's exactly what these memes are making fun of!

Brands Capitalizing Off Of Pride Month Is Cringeworthy Meme Gold

If you've been living under a rock for the past few years, then you may not have noticed large corporations and their tendencies to adorn absolutely everything in their power with rainbows and sparkles during Pride month. 

These brands are being criticized for only hopping on the marriage-equality wagon after strong evidence that it helps to sell more products. Aside from that, the move is just straight-up cringey and kind of reminds us of the "How Do You Do, Fellow Kids" meme.
