Margaret and Jonny. That iconic duo. Where to really begin with these two?
Jonny and Margaret were paired up at the beginning of 2020 during the winter lockdown, and kept in touch intermittently after their 8 weeks were up. Their conversation had predominantly centred around cricket and gin, one topic Jonny had little prior knowledge on and the latter plenty.
Once the world started opening up Margaret wanted to show Jonny the sport in action which they had spent so much time talking about. Cue in Jonny’s post.
His tweet went viral, garnering THOUSANDS of likes and retweets whilst our twitter following blew up. The trend #belikemargaret begun, Jonny was interviewed by national radios and we were approached by numerous TV channels to see if there were more befriender pairings like Jonny and Margaret.
Beside the obvious humour and cheek of both Margaret and Jonny, why else did this pop off in such a way? We believe we know the answer. Authenticity. Jonny and Margaret are pals, doing what pals do together best. Have a laugh and doing new things together.
