Proven Fact*: werewolves seek Butterfinger on full moons. (*this is not a proven fact)
I’m sure you’ve heard of the term “butterfinger,” which describes people with “slippery hands” who drop things. The term has been in use since the 1920s when sportscasters began to use the term to describe athletes who couldn’t hang on to a football or baseball. To celebrate this silly type of humor, Butterfinger has hired a roster of silly spokespersons over the years, from Bart Simpson to Seth Green and Jamie Pressly. Other humorous Butterfinger campaigns have involved a countdown to the end of the world -- described as BARmageddon, a comedy-horror movie called “Butterfinger the 13th,” and even several April Fool’s Day pranks, such as renaming the candy bar as “The Finger”!

*Butterfinger has designated 2013 as the anniversary benchmark for its first 90ish years. The beloved candy bar, originally invented by Chicago’s Curtiss Candy Company, is believed to have been promoted as early as 1923. However, parent company Nestlé (who has owned Butterfinger since 1990) holds a trademark document that is dated 1928, thus the 90ish reference around the Butterfinger anniversary, keeping in line with the brand’s irreverent sense of humor.
