The funniest Super Bowl social media post of the night was created by Charleston's own Jared Smith - and that's not an exaggeration.
Smith, a local programmer who also runs the @Chswx Twitter account, combined the two biggest mistakes of the evening into one hilarious tweet that was retweeted more than 19,000 times as of early Monday.
You read that right: 19,000 retweets. That's unreal unless your name is Bieber or Kardashian.
In case you missed the Super Bowl (and the commercials) the first mistake came from Nationwide Insurance, which depressed the entire world with a commercial about a boy who would never get to grow up “because I died in an accident.”
Nationwide issued a statement later saying, 'the sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance.” Well it certainly did that. The company was slammed and ridiculed across social media.
The second mistake came when the Seahawks, with a timeout remaining, declined to at least fake a handoff to their wrecking ball of a running back Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch and instead passed on second down, leading to an interception.
Smith, who also came up with Charleston's #WarOnTouror hashtag a year ago, posted a picture of the Nationwide boy with the words, “I would have run it with Lynch but I died.”
It quickly circulated across both Twitter and Facebook while getting picked up by multiple national writers and publications on a night when there were no shortage of jokes.
Well done, Jared.
