Yesterday (Tuesday, February 14, 2017) was Valentine’s Day and we all expected the word “Valentines” to trend on Twitter. While we waited for crazy tweeps to bring on the drama and the hopeless romantics to show off their gifts, we also were aware of the fact that brands look for clever things to say with fancy “creatives” and witty captions.
However, some two brands picked Feb 14 to have a very unusual conversation on Nigerian Twitter and it didn’t even start out relating to Valentine’s.
We figure Campari’s social media manager caught on American Honey’s tweets and thought “What the heck? It’s Valentine’s Day anyway.” So they jumped in.
Then Campari went from being Mr. Nice Guy to arguing out #MenAreScum / #MenAreNotScum with American Honey.
And then they went Shakespeare on us!
Totally loved this!
Then they made up “disagreeing to agree”. Typical Nigerian behaviour. LOL.
We were really hoping they’d tweetfight but it didn’t get dirty. *sad much*
That’s how Campari decided to gift 5 females picked by American Honey with famous vintage shirt brand, Retrocode just to show off (yes, we think they were showing off but hey, they made the girls happy, didn’t they?)
Then American Honey returned the favour and 5 men picked by Campari were gifted with #MenareScum T-Shirts. LMFAOOO! What an irony!
Maybe we’ll get on Campari or American Honey’s list next year as we didn’t get any gifts this year. *sad face*
