Applebee’s new Millennial-bait is a $1 margarita, a boy and his unusual trick are going viral, Hamburger Helper wins a point for defeating patriarchy (via Twitter), and more trending links from this week:
An announcement by Applebee’s this week has set the internet abuzz, and could be a game changer when it comes to their Millennial issues. In celebration of Neighborhood Appreciation Month and to give “guests a little love," the restaurant chain is selling dollar Margaritas, or “dollaritas,” throughout the entire month from open to close. Understandably, reactions have been excited thus far, as evidenced by tweets like “Applebee’s won my heart with the dollar margaritas” and “While I never would consider Applebee’s a hot place to grab a margarita, it would be financially stupid to not cash in on $1 margs all month.” People have already cashed in on the deal and are reporting satisfactory results.
A viral Twitter post has the internet saying “DAMN! Daniel” once again— but for a different Daniel and for a very different reason. A compilation of videos with the caption “IT’S APPLE SEASON BOYS,” has close to 150,000 likes starring Daniel Hartman and his impressive skill of catching apples…with his teeth. From the three-point line on a basketball court, off a balcony, halfway across a soccer field, Hartman continually and successfully catches apples with his mouth. He even manages to catch one off-guard coming out of the building, hands full of a Subway meal. As expected, many others have attempted the feat themselves with less than ideal results, leading Hartman to update his Twitter profile with, “I am not accountable for anyone’s apple-related injuries.”
