Let’s get ready to rumble! It’s no secret that companies exist in a perpetual atmosphere of competition, vying for control of the market, and fighting over limited resources, clients, and ideas. However, not all companies are created equal when it comes to their social media game.

That’s where the r/CompanyBattles subreddit comes in. It’s an online community that’s home to nearly 85k internet users who absolutely adore some of the casual social media stunts that well-known brands pull off. From Microsoft and GameStop to Wendy’s and everything in between, the folks running these companies’ social media profiles like to have some fun. What follows are some of the sassiest, most hilarious, and most unexpected things that these brands have posted online. All for your viewing pleasure, Pandas.

Go on, check out the posts below and remember to upvote the ones that impressed you the most as you continue scrolling. Don’t forget to share your opinion about companies pretending to be actual people in the comment section at the bottom of this list.

The ‘Company Battles’ subreddit is fairly new, having celebrated its 3rd birthday at the end of August. The moderating team is compact as well, with only 2 moderators keeping the entire online group in check.

However, what the subreddit has plenty of are rules. There are 10 of these commandments that members of the group absolutely must follow. Most obviously, everyone has to do their best to stay civil and polite.

There’s absolutely no bullying allowed on r/CompanyBattles and redditors have to mind their own business, not posting any private information about any people who might end up being featured alongside the globally-recognized brands while they’re showing off their media game and witty comebacks.

What’s more, community members should strive to share only high-quality posts. If something’s low-quality, an ad, or very clearly spam, it’s going to get removed. After all, some companies might try to advertise on the subreddit itself in a very sneaky manner (though we hope they have more sense than that!). That’s also part of the reason why posts should only feature screenshots without any links.

Right now, I am imagining what a roast war between Bored Panda, Buzzfeed, Pinterest and Reddit would look like.

When Gamestop Roasts You

When Gamestop Roasts You

GameStop Report

Some time ago, I reached out to financial expert Sam Dogen from the Financial Samurai blog, to have a chat about income inequality in companies. CEOs of major brands can end up earning millions of dollars each year (alongside hefty bonuses and great perks) while those further down the chain can sometimes barely scratch together a living. However, the reasons for this aren’t always clear.

Sam pointed out that the financial system has created an extreme dichotomy between the very fortunate and regular Pandas like you and me.

Wendy's Is Not Scared Of Nobody

Wendy's Is Not Scared Of Nobody

Wendys Report

“CEOs have no magical powers. Yes, they have the operational experience to run big companies. However, they are often just spokespeople and ambassadors of the firm. One person cannot make that big a difference in a large organization. If Tim Cook from Apple steps down, the company will be fine. Another overpaid CEO will take his place,” the financial expert explained to Bored Panda that CEOs aren’t all-powerful or always extremely talented.

“The reason why CEOs can get paid so much is due to the direct correlation of the size of the company. When a company is worth hundreds of billions of dollars, it’s easier to pay a CEO tens of millions of dollars a year, which comprised mostly of stock options,” Sam said.

“At the end of the day, the CEO and the Board of Directors’ goal is to provide as much value and returns as possible for its shareholders. And if that means firing thousands of employees, then that is what they will do. It is a sad reality of extreme capitalism,” the expert explained to Bored Panda that those at the top of the company will do whatever it takes to keep it afloat. In most cases, the bottom line is more important to them than the livelihood of their employees.

Generally speaking, replies such as 'OK boomer' that have no real reference to the original argument are so superficial and stupid. I mean, you downplay someone's argument because of their age, wtf? (Not a boomer, btw).

Ouch! Back in the Premier League though at last. But, yes, it's been a long and hard road back so kudos to Pizza Hut for the good burn. Still prefer Dominos though.

If Facebook was a little more rigorous with their blocking standards, we might not have had the January 6th insurgency. I have zero issues with Facebook freezing or blocking improper behavior on its site.
