When you see the fast fashion giant Zara proudly selling “Dude With Sign” shirts for their summer collection, you know the Dude has gone mainstream. And how couldn’t he? With a whopping 7.5 million followers, New Yorker Seth Phillips has gained a cult following for his truth bombs that protest anything from loud engines, phones that shatter easily, “x” in espresso, and other very specific, small things that add up to our daily lives.

And luckily, there’s always something new to protest against. Like, hot coffee in summer or verifying you’re not a robot. So today, we collected some of the Dude’s most recent signs for y'all dudes and dudettes who have had enough. Of what? Let’s say, just everything.

Psst! More truth bombs from ‘Dude With Sign’ await in our previous posts here, here and here.

Dude’s stardom started back in 2019 when Seth Philips, also known as the famous Dude holding signs, and Elliot Tabele held up a cardboard sign saying “Stop replying-all to company-wide emails” in New York City’s Soho neighborhood. The shot was initially made to be shared on Tabele’s Instagram account but after his follower count blew up, the duo realized their low-key protests were something the internet went crazy about.

Previously, Seth told Forbes that the signs were inspired by the never-ending list of first-world problems millennials have had enough of. But what made Dude With Sign really popular is just how relatable his truth bombs really were. The signs' universal appeal has amassed Seth a whopping 7.5M followers.

Today, Dude With Sign's influence is indisputable. Just a few days ago, I stumbled across Dude With Sign shirts in the isles of the street fashion giant Zara. The collection of shirts featured a couple of the most popular pics of Dude holding a punny sign.

Meanwhile, during the worldwide pandemic, Seth has collaborated with the World Health Organisation on a series of memes to share accurate information about how to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The series of pics was aimed at those who use Instagram as their news source and they included messages like “Elbow bumps are the new handshakes” and “Just chill. Your friends aren’t doing anything, anyway.” Both fun and lighthearted, Dude’s signs have helped to spread a crucial point at the height of the global health crisis.

I and my entire team can do our jobs 100% from home, but our CEO is obsessed with bringing everyone back into the office, because he loves the 'energy' of having everyone there. The problem is we're short 100+ desks, since the pandemic (we only have desks for half of my team) That's might be OK though, as we're likely going to start losing people soon, who don't want to go back to the office.

My fellow nonparents need to stop being obnoxious about this. 18 months is way different from 12 months developmentally.

In New Zealand we tend to have electric stoves and the elements are different sizes to account for different sized pots and pans. In most of the places I’ve lived, the front left element is bigger than the front right one.

But the entire US credit system is based on the fact that people spend money that they don't have. If you don't spend money you do not have you won't get a credit score and without a credit score you can't get a mortgage or a loan to buy a car.

It is from old English Wōdnesdæg or ‘Odin’s day', after Odin or Woden, the supreme Germanic god. Similar to Dutch woensdag.

But there are some people that are too obnoxious to be in the same room with even for 5 minutes, so that bit of info will decide if I'll accept your invitation.

And keep it there, not in real life. We want to work from home happily ever after in real life.
