Sonic the Hedgehog Gets in on Grimace Birthday Shake Trend


McDonald's has been commemorating the birthday of the lovable Grimace this month, and select store locations are offering a special Grimace Shake to mark the occasion. However, the shake has unexpectedly become the subject of a humorous meme lately, with viral videos circulating on social media depicting exaggerated scenarios where people hilariously pretend to meet gruesome ends after consuming the shake.

Now, even the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account has joined in on the fun. In a recent tweet, they extended birthday wishes to Grimace, accompanied by an image of Sonic lying motionless on the floor, with a purple-colored beverage spilled around him. The tweet cleverly adds to the ongoing meme and has garnered attention from fans and followers.

The tweet from the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account can be found below:

While the Sonic image is a perfect fit for the Grimace Shake meme, it's not a new addition; it originates from The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog, a visual novel released for free on April Fools' Day this year (the original drink was colored red). Nevertheless, the image aligns perfectly with the meme and has gained significant attention and positive feedback on Twitter. Surprisingly, even the official McDonald's Twitter account joined in on the fun, with Grimace expressing gratitude to "mr. hedgehogg" for the birthday wishes.

The Grimace Shake meme initially emerged on TikTok but has swiftly spread across various social media platforms, including Instagram and Twitter. In the meme videos, individuals who consume the Grimace Shake hilariously suffer bizarre and unfortunate fates. Some videos depict the drinker being struck by a car, ending up face down in a creek, or even losing their sanity. Others have cleverly incorporated references to classic horror movies, with several Grimace Shake videos portraying the drinker trapped in a basement reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project. Although this outcome might not have been what McDonald's anticipated when they launched the promotion, it has undeniably resulted in a series of entertaining and humorous videos.
