USC Trojans Twitter Fails Miserably With School Colors Tweet

You have one job, USC Trojans Twitter account, and that’s to never forget the school’s colors. Well you have more jobs than that, but when you fail this badly, that’s where the focus goes.

USC sent out the following tweet to rep the Trojans colors on Friday. The only problem? USC is not crimson and gold. No, there is no crimson whatsoever. That shade of red is actually known as cardinal.

As College Spun points out, UCS fans on Twitter immediately melted down, with the mistake completely stealing the thunder from Michelle Obama’s Vine. For a larger sampling of the tweets, check out College Spun.

To its credit, the account worked to cover its tracks and own up to the miserable fail.

Good form, Nicole.
