There was a programming shift over the weekend at Crayola's official Facebook page: instead of tutorials for kidz and Christmas greetings, crayon fans were delivered beautifully pure Facebook click-chum posts like "These Are The WORST Kind of Boobs" and "Reason Why Girls Don't Give Bl0wjobs."
And because it's Facebook and no one gives a shit where their garbage comes from, no one cared. In fact, lots of people loved it!
Our sincere apologies to our Facebook community for the inappropriate and offensive posts you may have seen here today. Please be assured the official Crayola page has been restored. We can't thank our fans enough for the feedback and support we received while working to resolve the issue … you truly are the best and we look forward to an exciting and creative 2015!
What's actually illuminating is that many of Crayola's Facebook adherents didn't notice or didn't care that their newsfeeds were being bombarded with crude horseshit links. Probably because the average American news feed has a lot of that stuff tossed in anyway; who cares if YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS GIANT ASS came from Crayola, or anywhere else?
So..... Am I a bad person for sharing the Bert and Ernie post the hackers put on your page? Because that was hilarious!!!!
Not everyone was offended and outraged by you getting hacked. Some of us found it amusing and knew it wasn't Crayola. I think you should delete all the people who were so terribly offended and threatened to delete you.
Dang! I missed it!
Best Sunday I've had in awhile humor wise. Thanks Crayola for keeping things "colorful".
Lol i took screen shots because it was just to funny
Saw the posts and never crossed my mind it wasn't supposed to be there
Even those who weren't thrilled weren't really pissed off, either:
That was weird I thought my lack of sleep was making me see things. I was very confused good to know it was not me.
Wondered what the huh?? Where's my crayons
After all the attention Crayola is now getting, you'd think it was a publicity stunt. On a separate and unrelated note, I don't know why but I suddenly feel like buying a box of crayons.
The near future of advertising (like, later today, maybe tomorrow morning?) is just blasting out images of weird skin rashes and thong slips, paired with a discount coupon code.
