Chick-fil-A is famous for its fine-tasting chicken products and its incredible customer service. They’re also famous for being closed on Sundays as a company-wide rule. They mentioned this would be the case even on Super Bowl Sunday, and Burger King jumped onto the tweet to reassure customers they would be open.
The chicken had a golden opportunity to hit Burger King hard. The King might be a market leader in the fast-food space, but Chick-fil-A is an up-and-comer that is going to be hard to ignore. Make the choice: a regular old hamburger, or a perfectly done chicken sandwich?
Didn't Even Have to Ford the River
If you were in school in the nineties, you're probably familiar with the Oregon Trail video games, which has players finding their way across the prairies as a settler. It was done to increase knowledge of the era and what settlers had to go through, and a few running jokes have sprung up, including members of your family getting sick with dysentery.
Thankfully, Twitter user “Jason Cirillo” made it without getting sick thanks to JetBlue Airways, and JetBlue responded in kind, mentioning their snacks. They don't carry much buffalo, though. It was all in good fun.
A Twitter user named “Marty Lawrence” tried to get himself some cod from his local Sainsbury's, but he was out of luck. Sainsbury's asked a question back to get more information and included a quick fish pun as a way to have some fun. Marty responded, slipping in his own pun, and things grew from there.
The tweets started to have less and less useful information about the store and started to focus more and more on puns, which is fine by us.
It Was the Obvious Choice
Eclipses are big events – depending on where you are around the world you can view them at exactly the same time as millions of other people. Brands love these opportunities to tweet about something relevant, but Hostess really missed the mark with this one.
They named their own cupcake snack the official snack cake of the eclipse, and MoonPie had a good laugh about it. There's really no other choice to make when you're thinking of a snack for an eclipse. It's right there in the name.
Maybe YOU Should Learn to Cook
Here's the thing about this interaction: Twitter user “Chris” is, technically, correct, but it doesn't really matter. Hamburger Helper didn't like the idea that their food wasn't good enough, so they struck back in kind to Chris, pointing out that insults don't make a husband very great, either.
Sometimes the guys need to cook, too. Everybody should know how to cook. Have a few recipes that you can whip out at any place or time and you're way more likely to be attractive to anyone.
