The picture above is of Red Lobster Dog from the dramatic and suspenseful Internet comic series Dog Fort, often found on website Reddit. His image has been used in countless memes by hundreds of websites, but now it appears large international companies, run by The Man, are cashing in on Red Lobster Dog’s Internet fame.
Below is the latest advert for the soft drink Fanta, which centres around two bubble-headed bimbos transforming their pet dog into Red Lobster Dog, so they can gain entry to some sort of beach party which prohibits pets and general fun by the looks of it.
Congrats Red Lobster you’ve made it to the big time.
