17 Times Businesses Tried To Use Their Sense Of Humor But Made Things Awkward Instead

Nowadays, it seems like everyone is striving to be humorous in their marketing—but why? Yes, it works. Consumers don’t want to feel like you’re ripping money out of their pockets, so humor is a great way to market your business without really selling anything. You can engage customers and keep their attention by appealing to their emotions.

To get the attention of consumers, especially the younger generation, many businesses produce advertisements that are replete with memes. Utilizing memes, however, is not always a good idea because it frequently fails or even backfires. The corporations could come out as fairly pitiful, especially if they are so awful at it that they egregiously abuse current terminology, cultural references, video game allusions, and a host of other things that they don’t appear to have a firm grip on. And things might get weird if they don’t know what they’re talking about. Scroll down to see some living proof of companies that created their own memes for marketing purposes.
