Pringles’ Twitter Account Is Being Spammed With Bizarre Donkey Kong ‘Cock Blast’ Meme

Once you COCK BLAST the fun don't stop?

Pringles

So. Um. The Pringles Twitter account is being spammed with a Donkey Kong meme where it looks like he’s firing an energy blast from his crotch.

We live in a society.

To illustrate:

That meme can currently be found filling up the replies to pretty much every recent tweet from the Pringles Twitter account.

What in the what?

On March 11th, Ryan Broderick broke the story via his “Garbage Day” newsletter. Now I’d personally like to think that “Garbage Day” is in reference to that scene from Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 that you either know from actually seeing the film or seeing it memed all across the Internet. In the newsletter, Broderick writes the following about the Pringles DK situation:

Earlier this week, the official Pringles Twitter account posted a pretty basic tweet. There should be nothing super notable about it, except, if you click in on it, you’ll see thousands of replies and most of them are just users posting the same meme over and over again. And that meme is a picture of Donkey Kong and the words “cock blast”.

I went to check for myself and, sure enough, if you go to the Pringles Twitter account you’ll see numerous comments that feature Donkey Kong “cock blasting” all over the place. That combined with the Pringles tagline of “get stuck in” makes for some very interesting visuals for my imagination. This tweet, in particular, is one where you can scroll endlessly for some good DK, ahem, COCK BLAST action. Donkey Kong is here!

Broderick decided to, quote, “do some journalism,” and after digging through a whole lot of comments managed to find the first user who posted the meme. “The user, who goes by @/TheKrustyKoopa DM’d me back and explained what’s going on here! Turns out, it was a completely pointless joke.”

And now, a quote from T. Krusty Koopa:

“A friend of mine tweeted saying he wanted people to spam Pringles’ Twitter comments with another image [it was a meme of a bug] but I made my own tweet telling people to spam the Donkey Kong image instead. And it eventually spread to people outside of my friend group to the point where it just became its own thing.”

Ah, Internet, never change.

While the Donkey Kong meme seems to have started this month, if you go to earlier tweets you’ll see the account being spammed with the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog, an anime girl in a bikini with the words “Hot Yuri,” and other attempts that didn’t quite take off. A tweet from March 14th is currently being spammed with the goose from Untitled Goose Game holding a knife AND Donkey Kong. Sometimes, you like to stack the Pringles and eat them all at once.

Has Pringles responded?

LOL, no, and they probably never will if last month’s “Hot Yuri” silence is any indication.
