Ernie Keebler, the Keebler Elf, has developed a particular reputation on Twitter and it’s not what you’d think.
He may look wholesome and sweet (pun intended), but lots of people feel like Ernie is a little… sexual.
Not convinced? Check out some of his Tweets.

Sounds an awful lot like a certain term that mentions indigenous people.

I will say, fantastic Tinder pun.
People have noticed Ernie’s erotic behavior.

WHAT IS THE SEXUALITY OF THE ELVES

That’s not Ernie’s only quirk. Some algorithm is making the Keebler Elf’s Tweets show up on people’s feeds in Spanish.

I DONT EAT KEEBLER PRODUCTS OR UNDERSTAND SPANISH IDK HOW THIS HAPPENED

I'm seeing a lot of Twitter ads for Keebler cookies with the elf speaking in Spanish. Is this super-high-level Jeff Sessions trolling? If so, I'm super on board with your marketing strategy, Keeb.

Is this in fact a marketing strategy for Keebler products? Or is it just another one of those strange things on the Internet we will never understand?
