The ‘Integration Test Email’ from HBO Subscribers are perplexed, which prompts memes and jokes.
On Thursday night, HBO Max caused some uncertainty after sending a cryptic email to a number of members.
The subject line for the email in question read, “Integration Test Email # 1,” while the message’s body merely stated, “This template is utilized for integration testing only.” There were no attachments in the email.
Several recipients of the letter flocked to Twitter to express their confusion, which quickly turned to hilarity as it was apparent that the message had been sent in error.
And, in typical Twitter fashion, a slew of jokes and memes filled the platform, with the phrase “Integration Test Email #1” trending high.
“Hoping the Integration Test Email #1 I just got from @hbomax is somehow the first step in really creative viral promotion for #Peacemaker,” tweeted filmmaker James Gunn, hoping that the error was for the advantage of his own impending HBO Max production.
“I hope everyone watches my new show Integration Test Email #1 coming on HBO Max soon!” said comedian Cristela Alonzo. We’re attempting a fresh marketing strategy…”
