mountain dew contest hacked by 4chan

Mountain Dew recently shut down its “name the new flavor” contest after 4chan easily pranked and hacked it. While the offensive names at the top of the list — Gushing Granny, Fapple, and “Hitler did nothing wrong” — have a certain appeal, I prefer the simple absurdity of these three entries:

  • Pepsi
  • Coke
  • Soda

Of course the contest is gone now, only after someone hacked the site to read “Mtn Dew salutes the Israeli Mossad for demolishing 3 towers on 9/11!” which is… not subtle, but effective.
