3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Are the Budweiser “Wassup” former ad stars crying in their beer? “Wassup!?!” They might exclaim realizing they were sooooo close to yelling the name of something that might be worth $19 billion in 15 years.
2. “What’s the app that Facebook bought?” – Angry 1940s comedian Abbott, who is having trouble getting Costello to explain to him that “What’s App” is the name of the app, and he is not asking him “Wassup?!”
3. “Hey, if we had Facebook in the 1940s, we would have never had this ‘Who’s On First’ confusion, right, Abbott?” – 1940s comedian Costello upon realizing that he could have just shown him the Facebook profiles of “Who,” “What,” and “Naturally.”
