Baskin-Robbins Uses Funny Tiger King Reference on Their Sign
It's not as crazy as it was a few weeks ago, but you can't go very far on social media without seeing some sort of Tiger King meme, joke, song, clothing or merchandise.
A Baskin-Robbins location in Kansas gets the internet win for adding a little humor to the sign in front of their store. Not only funny, but topical, with a nod to the Tiger King documentary that the world can't get enough of on Netflix.
The store owner says she didn't even know what Tiger King was. It was her son's idea to put 'NO RELATION TO CAROLE BASKIN' on the sign and people are loving it. Store sales even doubled the day the sign went up compared to the day before.
With businesses hurting because of stay-at-home orders, it's great to see that people got a kick out of the sign and business has increased since they put it up.
And, as you can see in the Facebook post by Emily Retherford above - it's a much more clever form of advertising than the other sign you see in the picture. Ha!
