Are the Teletubbies getting into Bitcoin? These Twitter memes say yes
What do Chipoltle, Joe Exotic, and the Teletubbies all have in common? Bitcoin! Apparently . . .
Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency which was invented in 2008 seems to have a knack for being the focus on many April Fools Day pranks. Last year, it was the Bitfinex energy drink by the sister exchange of Stablecoin issuer Tether, who tweeted out a Monster-like energy can with the caption “Bitcoin never sleeps so why should you?”
Now, it seems more recognizable brands are getting in on the April Fools Day action, including the BBC children’s show Teletubbies, which ran from 1997 to 2014. Today, you can get in on the cryptocurrency game with TubbyCoin, which conveys the value of big hugs! Sadly, TubbyCoin was ultimately debunked as an April Fool’s joke for charity, but it did lead to some pretty awesome Teletubbies memes!
Eh-Oh…what could the Teletubbies be possibly hiding from us? Stay tuned for something BIG this week. 🚀 #Bitcoin pic.twitter.com/fJ2NBXsENx

We totally forgot how their stomachs were also televisions. We’re officially moving on from Teletubbies memes to memes about a new Teletubbies Plus streaming service, available only from the stomachs of our favorite furry friends!
