‘Scumbag’ Helps Celebrate Imgur/Brisk Partnership

If you don’t know who “Scumbag Steve” is, he’s a brah who has provoked a wellspring of memes in recent times (you can view a pretty comprehensive list here) and was popular enough to be the centerpiece of a new campaign celebrating the partnership between Pepsi’s Brisk iced tea brand and image-sharing service, Imgur. Brisk’s ad agency Mekanism is behind the campaign, which will feature this “promoted image” ad across social and on Imgur galleries to promote the product. Even Scumbag Steve–aka Blake Boston–is taking part in the effort as it does leverage his name and image after all. Anyhow, we’re being told this particular meme’s in the experimental beta stage, but it seems to fit the “Scumbag” tone properly enough.
