Bill Cosby attempted a simple little PR stunt on Twitter Monday, and it blew up in his face almost instantly.

Tweeting a link to a Cosby meme generator on his website (which has since been deleted), he asked his followers to turn his pictures into memes, by adding some text.

But this year, following news that he would be starring in a new NBC sitcom, Cosby's past has come back to haunt him, with old sexual assualt allegations resurfacing in the media.

So it probably wasn't the best time to ask people to get creative with Cosby's images. Has his social media team ever even heard of the Internet?

Here are a few examples of the resulting Cosby meme - he certainly got lots of attention for this stunt, but not in the way they had hoped.

We all suspected this was too good (bad?) to be true, right?

In a lengthy post on LinkedIn, a man by the name of Dil-Domine Jacobe Leonares is claiming that his company, Breakr, orchestrated the entire "Alex from Target" meme which spread like a virus across the Internet earlier this week.

The LA-based startup wants to "connect fans to their fandom." And Leonares describes the purpose of this stunt as such:

We wanted to see how powerful the fangirl demographic was by taking a unknown good-looking kid and Target employee from Texas to overnight viral internet sensation.



And after both the original Tweeter and Alex denied knowing Leonares or his company, he backtracked with an update on his post and by telling Buzzfeed that he merely "drummed up support" after the photo was posted.

Update: Abbie (@auscalum) and Alex Lee (@acl163) were never employed by Breakr. A side from Abbie being a follower and tweeting the photo, we jumped on it with the hashtag #AlexFromTarget

So to sum it all up… it's still a huge, mind-boggling mess. And Ellen doesn't seem to care.

New Meme of the Day: The 60 Year Old Girl

Look out! Here comes another meme, and this one's a doozy! Beerdrummer posted a picture of his wife as a child on Reddit and it went a little out of control. Nothing like an included caption like, "My wife looked like a 60-year-old woman as a child," to be the catalyst of something amazing (though looking at the photo, I'm not sure the obvious could have been stated any more clearly).

What an amazing story of one's rise to fame...it's too bad she'll only ever know about it if she finally convinces her son to come over and get her Prodigy account to work.
