#PowerpuffYourself Completely Takes Over Social Media
If you weren’t around on the internet yesterday, you might have missed a minor apocalyptic harbinger. Everybody became a Powerpuff Girl. The soon-to-be-rebooted Cartoon Network classic launched an avatar generator and a social media campaign called #PowerpuffYourself, and man, I don’t think a branded viral marketing campaign could have gone any better. I’m pretty sure every single person I follow on social media made a Powerpuff’d version of themselves. (I know I did.)
Like all good memes, this one manifested in some pretty interesting places.
Fuse seized the opportunity to meme musical artists, from Bieber to Beyonce.
Fandoms Powerpuff’d their favorite characters.
And of course, some people took it in a different direction.
What do you think about the meme? Stupid? Cute? Complete waste of time? Did you join in the chaos and Powerpuff yourself? (Be honest, of course you did.)
