Both Steak-umm and MoonPie shared corny jokes about the Utah monolith on social media, representing the latest attempt at brands trying to join social media trends and meme culture.
MoonPie made a direct plea for the monolith to abduct the company next.
Steak-umm had an almost immediately reply, asking to be abducted next.
Meanwhile, the gas station chain Kum and Go and Pluckers Wing Bar shared memes about the monolith, which included a frosted drink and a chicken wing replacing the object.
What Southwest Airlines told us
Southwest Airlines shared a corny joke about the Utah monolith, saying that the company knew its location by asking for it back.
The airline also took credit for the monolith itself, showing numbers on the side that looked like something you’d see at an airport gate, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.
- The airline said: “Sorry y’all, we needed it back.”
