#BadPrequels is a hashtag game which asks Twitter users to create the title of a fictional prequel to a well-known film that sounds far less interesting than its original counterpart. The hashtag was introduced on the Comedy Central show @Midnite in May 2014.
On May 6th, 2014, the hashtag #BadPrequels was introduced during a segment called Hashtag Wars on the Comedy Central show @Midnite. The idea for the hashtag was sparked by the release of the trailer for the Batman prequel Gotham. Guest comedians Scott Aukerman, @Willieforcrack and James Adomain offered their #BadPrequel titles before Twitter users were called to play.
In less than 48 hours, the hashtag #badprequels was tweeted out over 100,000 times. On May 7th, 2014, Buzzfeed published a compilation of movie poster parodies created by Twitter user @BiscuitAhoy based on popular #badprequel tweets (shown below). On May 8th, Australian site News published a similar roundup titled “Bad Prequels posters are doing the rounds on Twitter, actually pretty funny.
#AddAWord is a type of hashtag-based word games in which an extraneous word must be added into the title of a famous book, film or song to make it sound irreverent or humorously out of its original context.
