General Electric's new take on the original Ryan Gosling 'Hey Girl' memes features Thomas Edison, inventor of the light bulb. This cheesy and dorky twist depicts Edison as a romantic with multiple science themed pick up lines. GE posted these images on Pinterest.

The board title reads 'Hey Girl: Thomas Edison has a crush on you.' This comedic interpretation of the Hey Girl memes is an interesting way to get a younger generation involved with the General Electric brand. The American multinational conglomerate corporation funded the famous inventor's work and merged with others in 1889 to create brand we are familiar with today.

Some of the memes, which are a way to carry cultural ideas through imitable phenomena, show pictures while others are merely phrases. Stats for Romantic Electricity-Themed Memes Trending: Older & Warm
