It’s been more than a year since Harambe’s untimely death (#RIPHarambe). Harambe was shot in the Cincinnati Zoo, in what would follow as one of the most bizarre PR nightmares in entertainment history. The scene made nationwide news everywhere, with many bold responses from professionals in the environmental industry.
Years later and Harambe is still remembered in the internet. He is a lovable meme brand that got his own song (#DicksOutForHarambe), t-shirt designs, and even an emoji. It was shocking PR nightmare that was brought to better light by the social media community.
What’s most surprising for Harambe (and his global brand) is his newest product line – a bed.
That’s right, Harambe fans – the HARAMBED has arrived! Harambed: The Bed of Your Memes. It’s the newest product line released by the Harambe brand.
The Harambed features 10 inches of ‘meme-ory’ foam that is covered by 100% faux fur. You can snuggle up with the realistic life-sized arms; it also includes a matching pillow and sleep mask as well. This meme-sensationalized bed can be yours for the price of… $1,000,000!
Only a cool million dollars for a bed from one of the most notorious brands from the internet. This bed will truly help you be the bed of your memes. If you feel as though your losing your primal instincts, take a walk on the wild side with the Harambed. You’ll surely feel like a true ‘King of the Jungle’ in both the morning AND night!
Seriously guys…this idea is just pure GOLD. The ad slogan alone sells it – the Bed of your MEMES. It’s the perfect word twist for selling a relaxing bed to your audiences. Every audience (including the Harambe fans) are going to flock to this product; not just because of its sheer comfort, but also because of the notorious internet reference. Harambe’s brand was already flourishing within the social media community, which will definitely be a major help for this colorful product.
This is the kind of products that turn heads – its new (yet references a classic meme), got a catchy slogan, and provides some interactive accessories to use. I’m not one of the Mad Men like Don Draper, but I definitely see how it ties in well with advertising the product. Catchy slogans like ‘The Bed of your Memes’ will go help you go far, in terms of selling it to your audiences.
And so, Harambe’s brand lives on years later. The genius ad campaign for the Harambe only flourishes the PR miracle of his brand. Public Relations and adverting bounce off of each other in the business world – public relations tinkers with the product or service’s reputation while advertising caters towards its image. Thanks to good PR and advertising, Harambe is still remembered around the world.
But the most special (and most ironic) thanks goes towards the PR nightmare of Harambe’s death. Harambe’s legacy still lingers on years after that tragic tale.
If you’re still reminiscing about Harambe, it’s time to get The Harambed. Harambed: The Bed of your Memes.
