Editor's note: This Entry Contains Spoilers for The Legend of Korra


"We Popping the Biggest Bottles When Makorra Happens Tomorrow" is a Tumblr snowclone that expresses excitement around a certain event happening. When the event, generally seen as unpopular to others, doesn’t happen, the text is reblogged with a sad image of Pepe the Frog.


On December 17th, 2014, Tumblr user avatarskorra posted “we popping the BIGGEST bottles when makorra happens tomorrow” in anticipation of the final episode of The Legend of Korra. “Makorra” refers to a heterosexual ship in The Legend of Korra fandom of the characters Korra and Mako. Instead, the series ended with an implied homosexual romantic relationship between Asami and Korra. After the episode aired, Tumblr user tonraq[1] reblogged avatarskorra’s post, adding the sad Pepe image. The post has gained over 97,000 notes as of February 28th, 2017.

On Tumblr, the post has become a notable example of mocking someone in hindsight and celebrating homosexual representation. Many in the Korra fandom were rooting for the homosexual Asami and Korra ship, and the Makorra ship was generally unpopular. A blog devoted to the moment, poppingmakorrabottles,[2] launched and celebrated what was perceived as a landmark for homosexual representation in cartoons. The snowclone was later applied to various other fandoms and moments, including Steven Universe and the 2017 Academy Awards (shown below).
