Mountain Dew Accidentally Told All Of Scotland To Masturbate In Their New Ad
Mountain Dew UK gave Scotland a good laugh recently when it tweeted a GIF of a sweating young man chugging on a bottle of Mountain Dew. The tweet itself said "We didn’t choose the chug life, the chug life chose us. #DoTheDew"
While this may seem like nothing out of the ordinary to Americans, a bit corny, if nothing else-- In Scotland, the tweet took on a totally different meaning... considering "chug" is Scottish slang for jacking off.
Now, with that in mind, the following responses to to the tweet should really tickle you.
I think you should change that slogan 😂😂✊💦— Dylan M Board (@BoardDylan) August 27, 2018
Starting the day with a good chug, a great slogan.— Otis T Bear (@big_fat_otis) August 30, 2018
Reminds me of the time I worked with a wee Indian guy who liked to go for a nap at lunch time. I told him the Scottish word for nap was chug and he started telling folk how he was looking forward to his lunch time chug.— Wullić 🇭🇷 (@WuGMFC) August 27, 2018
You guys didnt really consult anyone from Scotland on this UK wide marketing campaign eh?— Baseballscot (@baseballscot) August 27, 2018
According to Munchies, this isn’t even Mountain Dew's first F up. In 2012 they asked the internet to help name their new green apple flavor, and the results were... well, exactly what you'd expect from the internet. The most popular flavor suggestions were Hitler Did Nothing Wrong, Fapple, and Gushing Granny.
You guys, this is why we can't have nice things.
