A man got over 300 texts from people trying to cash in on Chipotle's free burrito special. They were supposed to text RAINCHECK to 888-222 but several people have added an extra 2 and sent texts to Henry Levine instead.
He told the Washington Post, "The first thing I did was get my free burrito, because I don’t dislike burritos". What a sensible person. Then he started texting back the super fans who sent him more than one message to tell them they had the wrong number.

Since then he's become a social media sensation and he appears to be on a quest to get those poor people their free burritos! At least he's got his priorities straight after this newfound fame.
Depending on your political leanings, Marco Rubio can be accused of a lot of bad things but going off message is not one of them. He really, really sticks to his point. When Chris Christie said that Rubio was repeating a speech that he had memorized he responded to that by repeating the same speech, sometimes verbatim, three more times.
So of course Robot Rubio became a thing.
Which came to it's natural conclusion with a guy dressing up as a robot and joining Rubio supporters holding up signs.
And that's what led to this video of Robot Rubio being half heartedly attacked by a Rubio supporter until he realized he was caught on camera.
In packages that range from "pretty nice of you" to extravagant, this company will send your (soon to be ex) lover a care package along with a video of you breaking up with them.
It's probably not the kind of gift most people are expecting for Valentines day but at least it's better than a text message.
J.K. Rowling created a play for Harry Potter fans dying to know what happens next to everyone's favorite wizarding trio. 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' is set to take place 19 years after the last Harry Potter book. According to the play's website:
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
Now, even if you can't make it to see the play performed, you can read it all in one sitting if you want. Pottermore just announced that the script will be published on July 31st.
As soon as Beyonce dropped her highly controversial new single 'Formation' people started craving Red Lobster. She gave the seafood chain restaurant a very saucy and favorable shout out with the lyrics, you can listen for yourself around the 3:00 mark in her video.
Since then sales have risen 33% and memes have also risen accordingly.
In Ghostbusters II a psychic named Elaine warned that the end of the world will be on February 14th, 2016. She assures us that the facts are accurate. After all they were obtained from a reputable alien source in a room at the Holiday Inn.
Of course we realize it's just a movie, but what if her prediction is true! It wouldn't be the first time that a movie foretold the future. We have hoverboards now, don't we?
Although, that didn't really turn out like we expected.
Maybe the world will be fine after all.
