Rock Out With The Dead Daisies, Laugh With Paul Varghese And Feel The Diamond’s Edge With K-Pop Sensation Seventeen.
The term ‘nothing burger’ is a political term used when politicians use a random issue and make a big deal out of nothing in order to achieve a means or distract the masses.
But what if you could actually get a literal nothing burger? Well, Twitter user @arikuyo of England did just that when he fooled the McDonald’s automated menu computer into removing every single ingredient from a cheeseburger — including the buns — and it still charged him about the equivalent of a dollar. The entire experience was turned into a Twitter moment and led to an increase in followers, retweets and likes for Arikuyo.
While i’s Arikuyo taking the fame here, we’d like to meet the employee who had the nerve to staple the receipt to the bag and then deliver the nothing burger.
So the lesson here is try funny shit and then tweet about it and your experience might get turned into a Twitter moment and then your follower count will blow up. Maybe that interesting thing that’ll make you internet famous will happen at one of these Wednesday night events.
