like tumblr was during the mishapocalypse

anonymous asked:

Can you pls explain the meaning and story behind mishapocalypse ???

Okay here goes… 

Mishapocalypse first started on Tumblr on April 1st, 2013, in which hundreds of people changed their profile pictures to a photograph of Misha Collins. The photo was originally taken during a panel at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con.

The idea for Mishapocalypse was first suggested on March 4th, 2013 by Tumblr user lokisleathersuit… 

God bless you @lokisleathersuit

Anyway, it soon spread to other social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 

It has grown in popularity every year since! Yay!
