One of the best, and sometimes worst, things about social media is the ability for some "hashtag" (IT'S A POUND SIGN, DAMMIT!) to start a trend worldwide. Sometimes they help raise money and throw a spotlight on a cause (e.g. #ALSIceBucketChallenge) and other times they just spark a goofy chain of tweets and posts.
The latest one to "go viral" is #ExplainAMoviePlotBadly. Below is a collection of my personal favorites from twitter. Enjoy!

For this last one, I switched up the #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly with #ExplainAFilmPlotPerfectly because, honestly, nobody has any clue what the hell is happening in David Lynch's MULHOLLAND DRIVE
