Remember how millennials killed everything? Well, add to that ever-burgeoning list the gainful employment of one beloved Mr Potato Head.
On April 1, 2019, also known as April Fools’ Day, Hasbro announced the termination of our spud-like pal’s contract to make way for his millennial replacement, Mr Avo Head.
“It’s no guaccident that the avocado was chosen to replace the carby potato,” reads Hasbro’s statement. “Hasbro has announced that Mr Potato Head will no longer be a star carb character and will be replaced with his soon to be Insta-famous rival, Mr Avo Head.”
Apparently Mr Avo Head is a hipster with a top knot and beard. Just in case you hadn’t got the whole “lol @ millennials” joke. Hilarious!
“True to character, the healthy, hipster Mr Avo Head, will sport a man bun and well-groomed beard, trendy sneakers, skinny jeans and will be listening to all the latest beats (which you won’t have heard yet) on his oversized headphones – all removable and interchangeable of course,” reads Hasbro’s statement. “If this is wrong, I don’t want to be ripe!”
“Mr Avo Head is suitable for millennials of all ages and will be launched at a date TBC,” reads the statement.
