Social Confidential: How Bud Light Seltzer's Chief Meme Officer Became the Dankest CMO

The brand set up a dedicated website acknowledging that its “meme game” needed some serious work and inviting the mightiest memelords on the internet—at least, those 21 and older—to apply for the role. The temporary position offered $5,000 per month to develop at least 10 “fire” Bud Light Seltzer memes per week.
