4chan Names Mountain Dew’s New Drink

Diabeetus for the win!

Neetzan Zimmerman for the Gawker

Mountain Dew — excuse me, Mtn Dew — reached out to Internet users for assistance in giving its new green-apple-infused beverage a name by launching a viral contest called “Dub the Dew.”

Enter: 4chan.

Happy to help, members of the infamous imageboard descended on the website to contribute suggestions such as “Fapple,” “Gushing Granny,” and, of course, “Hitler did nothing wrong.”

The corporate Powers-That-Be ultimately pulled the plug on the social experiment, but not before the site was hacked to include a fake attribution to 9gag (4chan’s mortal enemy), a Rickroll, and a marquee that read “Mtn Dew salutes the Israeli Mossad for demolishing 3 towers on 9/11!”

    Mtn Dew is owned by PepsiCo
    it’s the #4 best selling flavored water drink in the US
    there thousands of people devoted to the care & feeding of Mtn Dew
    many of them with MBAz from elite schools
    and yet no one foresaw the trollability of this little Dub the Dew
    they gotta stop consuming their own products before they get any stupider
