This week, the phrase ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ has taken over Twitter.
The viral meme involves NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, a hilarious crowd chant and an NBC reporter’s dodgy hearing.
Here’s what happened…
Brandon Brown won his race
On Saturday (October 2nd), American professional racing car driver Brandon Brown won his first-ever NASCAR Xfinity Series.
The 28-year-old took the top spot driving a No. 68 Chevrolet Camaro for Brandonbilt Motorsports.
Following the race, he did an interview with NBC, which is where things all went wrong.
The crowd started chanting
Whilst Brandon spoke to the NBC reporter, he was unaware that something was brewing in the background.
“Thank you to all of our partners. Oh my god it’s just such an unbelievable moment,” he said whilst the race crowd began chanting.
The NBC reporter then picked up on the chant and seemingly assumed that they were shouting “let’s go Brandon” in support of the driver.
“As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon’,” she said.
However, what they were actually chanting was “f*** Joe Biden,” showing their disapproval of the US President.
Now, the NBC reporter’s hilarious blunder is going viral on Twitter.
‘Let’s go Brandon’ is now a viral meme
On Twitter, people are finding the reporter’s error pretty hilarious and the hashtag #LetsGoBrandon is going viral as many react to the viral video.
However, others are arguing that the NBC reporter did know what the crowd was chanting, as it was pretty loud and obvious, but was simply trying to cover it up as she was live on air.
Apparently, a new trend has emerged that sees people chanting “f*** Joe Biden” at sporting events across America, such as the NASCAR race so, so this wasn’t an isolated event.
As these political chants continue to dominate sporting crowds, people are joking that they aren’t defaming the president at all, and are simply shouting: “Let’s go Brandon’.
And that, is the ‘Let’s go Brandon’ meme explained.
