Auburn "That's None of My Business" Memes

New, 5 comments

The internet has provided us with some great new fodder for posts.

The internet provides us with so much awesomeness, sometimes. Earlier this week, a 1980s Coke commercial filmed on Auburn's campus hit the internet.

<style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/TBe_CJ0f1gQ' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div>

The always awesome Jeremy Henderson at The War Eagle Reader researched the complete back story behind the commercial, unearthing even the most mundane details as he so excellently does.

If you watch it all the way through, you'll see Pat Dye drinking a Coke on the top of Haley Center overlooking Jordan-Hare Stadium. This provoked our own Kevin Ives (@AUPPL) to put it in .gif form to fit the Kermit "That's none of my business" meme.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>That video will now give me my favorite new gif: The &quot;But That&#39;s none of my Business&quot; Pat Dye <a href="http://t.co/1AaOd4FIgv">http://t.co/1AaOd4FIgv</a></p>&mdash; Kevin Ives (@AUPPL) <a href="https://twitter.com/AUPPL/status/568041614695919616">February 18, 2015</a></blockquote>

Here it is larger and embedded in a separate tweet:

Jeremy later unearthed an image of Auburn legend Shug Jordan drinking a coke after defeating UGA in a football game (we have to specify since Coach Jordan was the head basketball coach at one time, as well). Auburn Twitter staple @Grantbland decided that would fit perfectly for a meme as well.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Your most beloved coach never really wore houndstooth, but that’s none of my business.

So because it's a slow day and I'm curious what the Auburn Family can come up with... send us your memes!! They don't have to just be the two referenced in the article, either. Feel free to use the title image or anything else Auburn related you can come up with. Tweet them to us @CollegeAndMag. We'll put the best together into an article sometime next week to share with the world.
