Personally, I love the fact that Bloomberg is burning through money.
His running for President is a complete waste of time and that.
Somethings, money can’t buy, especially when you are a fucking jerk and everyone knows it.
Bloomberg is definitely a jerk.
A very hypocritical jerk at that.
What I do find to be especially entertaining is this meme campaign I’m hearing about.
A campaign of sponsored content for the candidate flourished suddenly on Instagram. A new outfit, called Meme 2020, is behind it.
Mike Bloomberg has contracted some of the biggest meme-makers on the internet to post sponsored content on Instagram promoting his presidential campaign.
The Bloomberg campaign is working with Meme 2020, a new company formed by some of the people behind extremely influential accounts.
Mick Purzycki is the lead strategist of the Meme 2020 project. He is also the chief executive of Jerry Media, a media and marketing company that is a powerful force in the influencer economy. The company’s portfolio includes some of the most notable meme accounts on Instagram. Jerry Media was at the center of controversy last year after a debate around proper crediting in meme culture.
In January, Mr. Purzycki tapped a number of large influencers who he had formed relationships with through his association with Jerry Media. (Elliot Tebele, the founder of Jerry Media, has no involvement in the project.)
The campaign, which launched this week, has already placed sponsored posts on Instagram accounts including @GrapeJuiceBoys, a meme page with more than 2.7 million followers; Jerry Media’s own most popular account, with more than 13.3 million followers; and @Tank.Sinatra, a member with more than 2.3 million followers.
The accounts all posted Bloomberg campaign ads in the form of fake direct messages from the candidate.
(If it’s too small to see, here is a link to a bigger version)
“Mr. Tank:” an ad on @Tank.Sinatra begins, “I’ve been waiting for my meme for so long that I learned how to make memes myself in photoshop. What do you think of this one?” The message is followed by a photo of Bernie Sanders that has become a meme in recent weeks.
Oooooo. What a Hep Cat this guy is.
The Bee’s Knees and all that.
Here, let me blow that entire concept completely out of the water and completely destroy his meme campaign with one shot.
I can’t take credit for this but someone was a fucking genius here.
Do us all a favor and spread that shit all over the internet…
I keep hearing it over and over and I have to say it looks to be true,
THE LEFT CAN’T MEME.
All y’all just keep trying though, make sure you charge this little bastard double too.
