Marketing with Lolcats

Lolpizza Now for some Friday fun. I have a guilty secret.

I’ve been secretly coveting lolcat sites, like I Can Has Cheezburger?.

I didn’t follow them the first time around. When the second wave came, I caught it and started surfing it with glee.

(I blame LOLTrek for getting me into lolcats. Someone pointed me to that link and from there, I’ve been hooked onto lolcats ever since.)

I know, I know. But what can I say, I’m a fan of corny jokes. And lolcats are about as corny as you can get.

So when David Friedman of Ironic Sans suggested Lolcatvertisements, I thought to myself: HAHAHA!

The way I see it, companies have about a week or so left in the life of the lolcat meme to come up with some clever ads that use the lolcat format.

Take a pizza and burger joint, for example. They could start with a picture of a pizza delivery guy, with the caption “I’M IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, DELIVERING YOUR PIZZA” or it could have a picture of a burger and fries with the caption “YES YOU CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER.”

I know, I know. The lolcat thing is fading again and lots of people can’t wait for it to die. But it still makes me chuckle. Hehe.
