'The Happiest People Ever' Blog Has Quite a Misleading Title

This website’s title is a little misleading. Although it is called ‘The Happiest People Ever,’ one can’t help but notice that the people in the photographs posted look anything but happy.

I suppose the website title could be considered accurate, though. Anyone who takes a browse through these awkwardly comical pictures is bound to leave feeling like the happiest person ever.

Implications - Internet culture tends to collectively embrace schadenfreude. This photo blog pokes fun at people who look angry, upset or stern, juxtaposing these photos with silly captions. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by infusing their products and ad campaigns with subversive commentary and dark humor.
