The Out-of-Touch Adults Guide to Kid Culture: How SpongeBob Won the Super Bowl
The Out-of-Touch Adults Guide to Kid Culture: How SpongeBob Won the Super Bowl
Jul 23, 2024 3:12 PM

  This week, following the conclusion of Super Bowl Sunday—a widely celebrated event in American culture—there were several noteworthy moments and discussions that emerged. Among them was Nickelodeons unconventional and entertaining coverage of the game on Paramount+. SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star joined CBS Sports Nate Burleson to provide a hilarious play-by-play, complete with Dora the Explorers quips, pop culture-infused graphics, and a memorable halftime performance of Sweet Victory.  One commercial that sparked conversation during the Super Bowl was an AI-generated advertisement featuring Jesus washing peoples feet, which left viewers questioning its message and intent behind it, as part of Hobby Lobbys billion-dollar campaign.  In a more meme-worthy moment, the White Houses official social media account posted a Dark Brandon meme of President Joe Biden, drawing attention and sparking conspiracy theories. The White House also debuted a TikTok account where Biden humorously addressed whether he had influenced the games outcome.  Amidst these events, gamers found themselves engrossed in a debate about the use of yellow paint in video games as a visual cue for climbable surfaces. This discussion dates back years, reignited recently by a Final Fantasy 7 screenshot shared on Twitter.  Meanwhile, coworker core became a term used to describe cringe-worthy content often shared by coworkers, typically including outdated or overused memes and clips from shows like Family Guy and Seinfeld.  Lastly, TikTok banned the phrase legging legs after it led to body-shaming comments and debates around who should wear leggings. When searched now, the term redirects users to a phone number for the National Alliance for Eating Disorders, reflecting the platforms efforts to combat negative body image discourse.
