#LessAmbitiousMovies Aims To Sort Of Take Over Part Of Your Twitter Stream

Hey you know what’s happening right now? #LessAmbitiousMovies, the craziest Twitter hashtag meme I’ve ever seen, pacing at around 200 tweets per minute. The basic premise is to tweet out the titles of popular films but watered down and less ambitious, get it?

What’s notable about the meme is a) for some inexplicable reason it is not trending and b) that since it started a couple of hours ago it has suddenly saturated my (and probably your) entire Twitter stream with hilarious faux movie titles like “Being John Stamos,”Harry Potter and the Chamber of Nothing,” and “The Devil Wears Zara.”

Maybe because it’s the first work week after the holidays and we all need to let off a little steam, but there something deeply satisfying about coming up with these. Go ahead try one.

And yeah, someone really should make posters for all the movies.

Some of my favorites, below:
