You’re invited to ‘Su’s Anal Bum Party’

I doubt that you really want to attend Su’s Anal Bum Party, but you might actually be interested in Susan’s Album Party instead. Susan Boyle’s PR manager was probably disappointed in his choice to broadcast Susan’s album release after seeing the response to #susanalbumparty. Is was meant to be read as #SusanAlbumParty but as many of the twitter users saw it, they obviously began making jokes about the Anal Bum party. I admit that I laughed pretty hard when I found this on the internet. I hadn’t seen it at the time that the album was released but found it online later. After realizing the pornographic mistake that they had made, the hashtag was quickly changed to #SusanBoyleAlbumParty. The hashtag didn’t gain publicity for nearly a month. It wasn’t until some younger male tweeters saw the fail that it really started gaining publicity.

Some of my favorite Anal Bum party tweets:

Curious Badger @BadgerCurious 22 Nov  “I went to a #susanalbumparty once. I saw things. Terrible things.”

Obi ian Kenobi@obi_ian_kenobi 23 Nov “Spaces make a difference susanalbumparty – susan album party therapistfinder – therapist finder whoreviews – who reviews”

Tessa Coates@TessaCoates 21 Nov All I’m saying is that no one knew Susan Boyle had an album coming out and now we all know…#cynic #susanalbumparty”

The latter of the three suggests that maybe this was a publicity stunt for Susan Boyle. She does make a good point that no one had really known that she was about to release a new album, but after this twitter fail a lot more people knew. It’s still regarded as one of the best hashtag fails of all time and if you search hashtag fail it’s usually placed as the #1 fail. I think that the the PR professionals working for Susan knew what they were doing and created a lot of laughs and possibly a better selling album.

  1. It is interesting to see how sometimes a fail can actually work out in the end. By accidently having a funny hashtag, Susan was able to probably gain more publicity than usually. It is nice when it can work out like that and can be laughed off.
