Universal’s Orlando theme park has added a glitter-farting troll to its character line-up, attracting fame on Twitter.
The daily meet and greet with the characters from Trolls usually features Poppy and Branch. Recently, a sparkly purple troll named Guy Diamond has also been added to the event.
Guy Diamond does a short dance, and then farts confetti.
The character has attracted lots of attention on Twitter, with viral Tweets joking about the character – including the suggestion that he should star in next year’s Superbowl Half Time Show:

And another user that was thankful to the character:
I hate the troll that farts glitter but I appreciate Universal for making me feel something again

UK theme park Thorpe Park got in on the action:
Based on recent theme park industry trends, we’ve decided to reconfigure Stealth so that it now farts glitter with every launch 🎢💨✨

There were comparisons between different approaches to live appearance character development taken by Disney and Universal!
Disney: “we built a talking Mickey that cost years of R&D that we retired in five years”
Universal: “put a glitter fart thing in this mother fucker”

Other users raised concerns about the character:
I’m very uncomfortable with how sculpted his butt is

As well as the additional clean-up he requires:

Last year, Museums in the UK celebrated ‘Museum Meme Day’ by posting captioned pictures of their artefacts on Twitter.
Many of the Twitter accounts behind popular UK museums posted a meme related to art, history and even the people that visit. It follows a popular trend of Classic Art memes, where pictures of famous artworks were captioned.
And earlier this year, museums went viral on Twitter by sharing their best “duck pics”.
