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.

This Overly Dramatic Subway Ad Has Been The Victim Of Utter Mockery By Memers

It seems like every brand these days is using some profound human experience to sell their product in hopes that it'll insight some feelings in their customers. We've seen Burger King do it, and apparently now it's Subway's turn. 

Twitter user Ryan Simmons pointed out that a Subway commercial made in Brazil went completely over the top, to say the absolute least, in this new dramatic two-minute video. The seemingly heartfelt ad features a young boy coming of age and ends with him ordering a sandwich at Subway. How the hell Subway's marketing team thought that one up, we'll never know. 

The ad features the main character creeping on his own mother, peeing in a fountain, and shaving his head. Yeah, you're just going to have to watch it to even remotely understand what we're talking about.

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...

Spoiled Rich Girl Revealing How She Affords NYC Life Will Make You Rage

Refinery29 probably made a bad call with publishing this article in their series entitled Money Diaries, which chronicles how the Millennial woman budgets her "hard-earned" money. In this particular installment, R29 interviews a 21-year-old college student and marketing intern living in New York City who makes $25 per hour and can somehow still afford to have a little extra cash left over after she pays the bills.

Sounds like a pretty typical Millennial life, right? Well sure, until you learn that said marketing intern has rich parents who pay her rent, phone bill and health insurance costs. Needless to say, the internet is absolutely raging about this spoiled rich girl's lavish lifestyle.

Sunny D Is Getting Meme'd After Tweeting Some Seriously Bleak Sh*t

The internet has been pretty freaking weird the past few days. Tom Brady making out with his son, Liam Neeson's racism confessions, and then yesterday Sunny D went viral for tweeting about depression. The orange-flavored beverage brand tweeted "I can't do this anymore" and the entire internet seemed to step up to provide support, with brands (like Moon Pie) and concerned citizens sending wholesome messages. The exchange is very entertaining. 

While we're having fun with it, this marketing tactic is not without its critics. Food website Eater was quick to denounce not only Sunny D's tweet, but trying to gain brand clout by posting vague and bleak messages. Many people agreed that the practice was decidedly uncute. While we are into brands embracing "weird Twitter," depression is not a joke, and maybe they should put a little more thought in their tweets. 

Sunny D, twitter, depression, brands, "i can't do this anymore," brands on twitter.
