Click Frenzy Mania

I have an odd sense of humour, I really do.

Last night I was highly amused at the debacle that was Click Frenzy – as if no-one expected the site to buckle under the weight of a nation chasing questionable bargains?

Puh-lease…

While the cranky comments on the Click Frenzy Facebook page were highly amusing on their own, it’s was the astonishing speed of the memes on social media that really made me laugh last night.

People never cease to amaze me with their quick wit and ability to laugh at the expense of others…take these gems which appeared on Facebook within hours of #clickfail

Not to mention the click frenzy fail pages that sprung up not long after the debacle began. You can take your pick from Click Frenzy Fail , Click Frenzy – What a Fizzer, Click Frenzy Stuff Up and Click Frenzy = Fail. As at 10.30 pm last night they boasted over 3000 likes combined – not bad for 3 hours work.

Over on Twitter the #clickfrenzy, #clickfail and #clickfrenzyfail hashtags trended heavily with many tweeps linking to this genius piece of work:

Hats off to all who provided me with so much amusement last night – there are some twisted and clever souls out in social media land and my odd sense of humour salutes you!

Spread the positivity!

  1. i know! i live with an IT architect engineer and it was like the funniest thing in the world to him. i love how DJs tried to cash in and failed and how even harvey norman went down and they didnt have any sale!
    i was hoping for a new sports bra…. never mind i’ll wait till after christmas.
    The abuse and the people abusing because their comments were deleted were hilarious.
    a night of entertainment – hope they do it again!

  2. Im assuming there wasn’t any or many sales because of all the servers crashing.
    We tried to have a look with no such luck.

      Either the servers were overloaded or they had some sort of cyber attack – who knows. Whatever the reason, I loved the result and got a good laugh during the night!

  3. Had such a good laugh thanks for the video

  4. Love it. What a joke Click Frenzy was anyway! Australia just does not get it. The people in charge need to take a look at online shopping in the US. More and more retailers are getting it in regards to the actual online shopping, but big stores are so far behind it’s ridiculous!

    • Kirsty says:

      I know Aroha – they just don’t understand at all. All they want to do is complain that they are losing business to o/s online stores that DO get it. While it was frustrating for many it did give me a laugh and hopefully it will give Australian retailers the kick up the bum they needed to get their act together!

  5. that first meme was on like lightning~ such a crack up!!! love the hitler one hahaha!

      I could not stop laughing all night! The memes were so clever and I also got a kick out of the comments left on the Click Frenzy fb page too. There were a lot of unhappy people that night and while I generally don’t like laughing at the expense of others, the righteous indignation of some of the comments was pretty funny.

    I somehow missed the click frenzy mania at the time – though remember reading about it. (Coming upon things AFTER the event is sometimes a good thing as you get to revel in the debacle of their failure!) PS. I’m a bit the same with reality TV and the news – I much prefer getting a post-event summary via Twitter!

    I had a meme app on my phone the other year in a job – it’s a great (if in appropriate) stress reliever when people p*ss you off haha.
