66 Times These Brands And The Media Tried To Act Cool For Younger People But It Turned Out Cringeworthy

Prepare yourselves for mass levels of cringe that are bound to send you spiraling deep into face-palm territory, dear Pandas. In my personal experience, there are very few things that are more cringeworthy (and deeply, deeply sad on a cosmic level) than seeing someone desperately trying to fit in with the younger crowd. They might think they’re hip, but they might actually need a hip replacement. “How do you do, fellow kids,” indeed.

It’s not just your neighbors, teachers, and professors, though. It’s entire companies, corporations, and conglomerates that try to appeal to the youngest generations by using their vernacular (read: slang), too. This, however, can backfire gloriously because it’s anything but natural and sometimes you can’t even get to grips with what’s going on. Imagine your grandparents shouting ‘YOLO’ and then doing the Backpack Kid’s dance moves—it’s that level of ‘oh Lord no, no, no, please stop.’

What’s even better is that there’s an entire subreddit, r/FellowKids, dedicated to documenting and cataloging the very worst transgressors who try to be cool. Check out the best pics below, upvote the ones that made your inner child groan in embarrassment, and be careful so you don’t overdose on the cringe.

I’m not even going to pretend that I ‘get’ the newest couple of generations. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I try to stay as up-to-date with what’s new as I can and I absolutely love watching how memes and their formats evolve over the years, but that’s not enough.

I’ve reached a point where I know that I won’t be able to get everything. And that’s perfectly all right—every single generation goes through this sense of alienation and isolation as it grows older. We think the world’s changing too fast/for the worse while the youngsters are complaining that we’re not cool.

So while I’ll shamelessly steal ‘sus,’ ‘flex,’ and ‘yeet,’ you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll steer clear of the likes of ‘skrt,’ ‘kiki,’ and (probably the very worst offender) ‘bae.’ Why? Because I don’t get them. And pretending otherwise would be to behave exactly like the people making you laugh in this very list.

Besides, I’d much rather be old-fashioned and eccentric in my own way than desperate to fit in. I like who I am, I don’t need to pretend to be a teenager. But, damn it, ‘yeet’ is just a fantastic word, isn’t it?

The ‘Fellow Kids’ subreddit has just shy of 801k members and they’ve been around on Reddit since the late spring of 2014. The moderators are very straightforward when it comes to the community rules. In essence, try your best to be nice and make sure that your posts are on-point and actually belong on r/FellowKids. Otherwise, they might be yeeted out. Sounds simple enough, right?
