What are the chances that the misspelled Amercia was intentional? If it hadn’t been, everyone who downloaded the app to make fun of it wouldn’t have, there wouldn’t be 5 lists about it on Buzzfeed (I don’t actually know if there are 5 lists about it on Buzzfeed, but there are 5 lists about everything on Buzzfeed), and nobody would be even talking about the thing.
What if they assumed that if they got a bunch of downloads thanks to a misspelling they could capitalize on all the young, hip people downloading it and gain more traction with the young crowd (that is probably largely voting for Obama). Going “viral” on the internet is all the fucking rage these days, especially with people who don’t understand the internet, and they could have seen it as the only way they were going to go viral. Even a negative meme is better than no meme, especially when the meme isn’t exactly damaging.
It’s not likely to actually gain them any voters, but the world is filled with absolute fucking morons, so maybe they thought it was a good way to start gaining idiots support.
But then again they’re probably not that smart and they just couldn’t find a developer that knew how to spell.
