When Wendy’s unveiled its “4 for $4″ deal, designed to appeal to its most frugal customers, Burger King saw an opportunity for a flame-broiled Twitter feud.
It Started Innocently Enough
Wendy’s just wanted to get the word out about its new promotion, hoping frugal, hungry customers would bite.
Burger King knew that, for the same price, customers could get one extra item at its restaurants. The attack ad was quick to follow Wendy’s big announcement.
One Twitterrabble-rouser decided to get the beef going, and Wendy’s took the bait.Somebody call the burn center, because Burger King isfully burnt!
Aww, You Hurt The King’s Feelings!
While BK didn’t formally respond to the full on grillingfrom Wendy’s, they did get themselves a little confidence boost the same day.
Of course this isn’t the first corporate feud on Twitter.
Taco Bell and Old Spice got into a spicy conversation a few years ago.
…And it appears Old Spice was the victor.
Who knew bookish types could be so snarky?
Book publishers Melville House and Penguin Random House got into it in October when Melville House published this Trump-inspired Photoshop, lowering a sassy hat into its headquarters.
Penguin Random House saw the opportunity to get its beaked nose in the middle of it.
Ooooh, Penguin Random House. You’ve messed with the WRONG Melville.
Asking The Real Questions
Penguin Random House was suddenly regretting their decision to pick a fight.
Melville House really didn’t want Penguin Random House to be starving for knowledge.
Penguin Random House wasn’t going to take Melville’s special brand of torture.
And Melville wins. Seriously. Bravo, Melville House.
Oreo decided to take on the powers that be at corporate movie theaters by suggesting patrons sneak in their own crunchy cookie snack.
Concessions are how movie theaters make most of their money, you naughty cookie!
When Priceline launched its #Negotiator4President hashtag, Walt, Orbitz spokesman, jumped at the opportunity to tell Priceline they were doingthe low-cost travel thing first.
Getting Into (And Onto) Their Heads
Priceline wears many hat, and we’re guessing Orbitz was feeling pretty Shatnered.
Suddenly the feud became a weird stripping contest, courtesy of Walt.
One day these tweets will be used in a Supreme Court argument supporting corporate personhood. Until then, bring on more brand feuds!
The 10 Commandments of Grocery Shopping That You’re Tired of Everyone Breaking
While the grocery store experience should always be pleasant after all, the result is that you get food there are some things certain people” do that can take away some of that pleasure.
These 10 rules of grocery shopping are written just for them.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who return carts to the cart corral and a-holes.
Leaving a cart to find its own way home often results in the cart camping out in a parking spot someone will inevitably pull halfway into before realizing the cart is there and angrily backing out, pissing off people behind them.
The carts have a home. Help them find their home.
You do not have super-human pedestrian powers that override people in their cars trying to get past or around you.
Pick a side any side and no one gets hurt.
If youre barreling down the middle or the wrong side like a linebacker and clip my cart, I am not above throwing a shoulder.
Also, try to refrain from doing a 180 halfway down a jam-packed aisle only to amble along as if youre taking in the sights at the Louvre. Its soup. Not the Sistine Chapel.
The sign says 15 items or less. It does not say, Everything you can stick in the small-ass cart you chose instead of regular cart.
That does not refer to the number of item types, but the actual item count.For example, those 75 cans of soup that took you 15 minutes to pick out does not count as a single item.
You are not a special snowflake. If everybody ignored this rule, it would just be a regular line.
