If your favourite [or most feared] movie character had some advice for you, what do you think it would be?

[The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 12 noon South African time [6am EDT] an inspired and growing number of brilliant, creative and absolutely fun people from all around the world take part in what is called a Hashtag game. @AFrikkinHashtag [say it out loud] is South Africa’s #1 Hashtag game and is always a lot of fun. The F.L.O.P. [or Fish List Of Prizeworthyness] is the collection of some of the best tweets from each week’s game and is what all seriously comedic Hashtaggers aspire to…]

Craig is someone whose tweets we have enjoyed for a long, long time and so i was glad to finally get him to co-host AFH with me.

At the last minute i had to skip this game which made me VERY SAD both from the point of tagging with Craig [we will get him back!] but also this tag just felt like such a great one and i knew it would be fun. The reason i could not be around though was a really good one and so i wouldn’t have missed missing it for the world. At the very last minute i got to jump into a one year certificate for a course i’d really been wanting to study called LUT or Leadership in Urban Transformation, which you can read a little bit about here if you are interested…

But back to this most exciting game… we sent out an invite…

Barry Walsh is a guy whose tweets i also love and we are getting him to co-host with us soon but he has an even better reason than me to skip this particular game and so we were super stoked to celebrate that with him:

So we sent the tag out into the Twittererverse and things got crazy quickly.

This game trended super quickly thanks to the work of Craig and the as always UnNamed Ones and clearly a WHOLE LOT OF YOU…

For a long time we were just behind the pope and Spiderman Homecoming which is no mean feat, but as you can see there we finally took Spiderman and even held off #WednesdayWisdom for a while… and later even usurped the pope i believe…

Cattsy let us know we trended down under as well:

Most of our favourite bots were out in full force to show this game some love and even recommend us a song:

And the @HashtagRoundup app even made us a Minutes: https://twitter.com/HashtagRoundup/status/867353295316299776


From time to time we get some significant Verified blue tick accounts playing our game which is always fun, but this week was off the hook. Shoutout to Jayme for hunting them all down and this is only about half of them cos there were SO MANY… but thank you all so much for choosing to play our game:

Starting with Actors Access who invited their people to play:

Followed by Loot Anime:

The Breeder’s Cup got into the act:

Followed by Flippin Disney/Pixar with a classic Dory moment:

The Band Of Verona found a music-themed quote to play with:

Resident Evil? Talk about freaking out. A notification to let you know that [for the second week in a row] Resident Evil has dropped a tag in your game:

Kik played it so nicely ]plus bonus points for Guardians] relating the game to their vibe:

And the Indie scene was not to be outdone:

IMDB also got into the… #cough… act… Frikkin IMDB people!

Followed by MGM Studios cos seriously all the big kids came to play:

Redbox was next:

Followed by the movie theatres themselves:

And seriously now, Rotten Frikkin Tomatoes… i kid you not. Classic movie choice of course:

An apt college quote from a great college:

Then technology was not going to sit by and watch:

We also had the LA Auto Show with what else but a Cars quote:

Followed by Perez Hilton, cos why not?

But these two felt super special to me in a sea of super special. Alien chest-busting warning from Syfy:

But the pick of the crop had to be FRIKKIN SHARKNADO. Can you believe Sharknado played my game? With such a great selfie pic from their flick. #CallMeIfthereIsAPartInSharknadoFivePeople:

So that was a lot of silly fun. Studios and bands and famous people and movie organisations and the flying sharks… so much verified fun…

But even having said that, we know the real winners [and the reason you even came in here] are you guys which is why we have a TOP TWEETS section that is called the F.L.O.P. for acronymic reasons… with SO MANY tweets zooming around the Twittersphere we obviously couldn’t catch them all, but we got a whole bunch we thought were pretty good and they make up this week’s:

FISH LIST OF PRIZEWORTHYNESS [Did you make it on? Huh? Huh? Well, did ya?]

Co-host Craig starts us off with this classic [especially if you’re old like me and get it]

While Lisa was doing her best to get thrown out of the AFH chill zone:

Rob seems to speak from experience?

While Audio had some sound advice about making the most out of life:

While Tomas managed to pull of the word “nakey”:

We think we know what Bannon meant, but log distance? More like E.Tree phone home!

Perv wondered if hygiene was really worth that high pitched stabbing sound:

While Mark had had just about enough:

Chris thinks it is all about balance:

While V seemed to have a bit of trouble beeping, i mean keeping up:

Groot had some surprising words of his own to add:

And Silver Eye had this popular reminder:

Richard was starting to creep us out a little bit:

While Jeff was thinking practicals:

Tom was doing his usual tricks:

Jeff was back with a little more precision:

While Bob was keeping it real:

V just wanted to lend a hand:

Jack was a little more cautious though:

Mikeala was all about keeping track of your things:

While Will brought the combo [loved this one so much!]:

And Orchid gets super bonus points from bringing the Python:

Andy could not have expressed it better:

While Bacon seemed a little confused:

While other Bacon seemed defiant:

Great stuff everyone and so sorry i largely missed this one [but also not] and although there is not a list of Top F.L.O.P. tweets this week i really loved this wordy one from Mark so we will finish off with him:

SUPER SPECIAL THANKS to everyone who stopped by and played this game – SHARKNADO PEOPLE!!! – and look forward to seeing you at the next one…
