Internet memes: blink and you’ve missed it

Dr Mumbo loves an agency that loves to have fun.

But he’d also like to call a moratorium on Harlem Shake agency spin-offs. The train has left the station. The ship has sailed. The fat lady has sung.

The meme was murdered a week ago. Dr Mumbo knows adlanders are clever people and feels possibly there are more creative ways to spend your time. Binge drinking, macramé, whatever. But no more Harlem Shake.

And the point at which you’re begging Blink 182 to help you out is the point you might want to have a quiet word with yourself…

    I wonder if Blink 182 had already agreed to do it before the tweet..?

    I wonder if LBS will / have performed it?

    I wonder if they will post it to YouTube?

    I hate wondering about shite things like this.

  12. Sweet Jesus there needs to be several uppercuts given. I would hazard a guess and say Blink 182 have not/will not agree to this, surely.

    If they do, well, They join Leo’s as a group of Dinosaurs trying, and failing miserably, to stay “hip”.
