This Idol's Minor Slip Up Caused An Ice Cream To Sell Out Across Korea

I hope he'll get paid for this!!!

You know how sometimes when you're asked to read something aloud in class and you accidentally say the wrong word? Well in this case, one company made a huge amount of money for that kind of mistake!

On Produce 101 of course there are plenty of product placements. They're being sponsored by shoe companies, vitamin companies, drink companies, but not ice cream companies - yet ;)

Kang Dong Ho (NUEST) was rapping and misread a line on the broadcast. He said "Megaton" instead of whatever word he was supposed to say.

Megaton happens to be a pretty old school ice cream in Korea, definintiely not a super popular one.

But miraculously, after the show aired, stores had to put up signs saying that they were sold out of the ice cream!

It has since sparked memes galore and I wonder how long this will last!

The power of Produce 101 LOL!

My baby from Nu'est is just looking out for the fam
I haven't watch the show 😂. How many Nu'est members made it to the 101 team?
Out of the 3 that were in at the beginning, he is the last one left
Did he made the team?

ASTRO Promotes Tampons/Pads and I Am Here for It.
Yep, ASTRO is officially the brand models for Secret Day, a company that makes feminine hygenie products aka menstral pads wooooo!!!! 'Secret Day' explained, "They were selected because they have this sincere image of a considerate boyfriend who understands their girlfriend." And I'm pretty sure you get photo cards too? Maybe? In which case, I'm looking forward to that time of month LMAO. Why do I think this is really groovy? Because periods have always been a thing that have been ~gross~ and make men feel ~uncomfortable~ (tbh its the mark of a truly awesome man if he's cool enough to go buy you pads when you need them) Having men promote the product, especially idols that are meant to be role models, might help guys realize that they should be understanding and if they have a special lady in their life, they should be there to get through the tough times (some of the commercials include ASTRO giving out chocolate which, at least in my personal case, is NECESSARY during that time of month hahahhaa) I think this is a really cool idea! And here's the behind the scenes: This comes right after a story that spread all through Korean news sites: A girl was sitting on the bus when she got her period unexpectedly, there was a small blood stain on her leg and a man who was standing next to her saw it. He "accidentally" spilled the strawberry milk he was drinking near her seat and apologized, giving her his jacket to cover the milk stain. “I’m sorry I spilled it. You can take my clothes and tie it around you before you leave,” he said! A boy's friend posted about it online, the girl responded thanking him, and now that boy is a national hero lol! Boys who are man enough to understand menstration are my favorite boys hahahahah
