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:
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.
