Take-Out Boys' "ears" Are in Vogue

"Can I pinch your ear?"

I don't know when it started. Someone found that the little brother who came to deliver the food was a bit different. He had a pair of "rabbit ears" on his head. The cuteness suddenly burst, making people want to pinch. Some netizens took photos of these cute ears and uploaded them to platforms such as Weibo and Douyin. A viral stalk was born. And these ears tremble with the speed of the takeaway boy, and become a lovely landscape on the road. Perhaps because people have little resistance to cute things, most takeaway boys wearing "ears" can hardly escape. There are many users who order takeaway to touch the bunny ears, but because not every takeaway guy has bunny ears, the experience of waiting for a takeout is no less than opening a blind box. A 40-year-old Hangzhou takeaway boy said that he has been molested for his ears more than once. When delivering a meal, customers may suddenly come forward and squeeze them. They are often praised by girls for cuteness and envy takeaway boys on other platforms. However, the popularity of kangaroo ears also exceeded Meituan’s expectations.

In the face of such negative news, Tencent will be a "han" The image of "Penguin" was pushed to the public.

He grievedly sold cuteness at station B and begged for mercy, which narrowed the distance with the students. .

No one can refuse to be cute

There is no need to doubt Meng’s communication power. In the Internet age, this is a master key to attract traffic. In an experiment, when two strangers sat on a bench, they would consciously sit at the ends of the bench to maintain a distance.

Although the Internet has exploded in information, we still cannot resist cute things, just like we can hardly leave emojis in chat now, in this pool that can gather a large number of eyeballs, of course, we can't escape the eyes of those Internet companies.
