Over the past few Thursdays, Green Bay Packers Twitter has participated in a movement called “Thirst Trap Thursday.” The movement began when a Twitter account mentioned that Packer women weren’t found attractive. In rebuttal, the Packer ladies and gentlemen of Twitter assembled posting pictures that were deemed as “trap photos” to promote body positivity.
Thus, several Packer players decided to join in as well. AJ Dillon brought light to the movement on Cheesehead TV’s “Carry The G,” naming Kylin Hill and Allen Lazard being the biggest “Thirst Trap” players on the team.
While I would love to rank every post, I simply cannot do that because it isn’t a competition of everyone who participated. I will, however, mention my favorite posts.
Packers Twitter Thirst Trap Thursday Posts
David Bakhtiari posted a photo grid with shirtless Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb, himself and Aaron Rodgers with the caption “1?2?3?4? discuss.”
It is no surprise that Matt Lafleur would make it some way, somehow be tweeted on this trend, as he is crowned the “hottest coach in the league.” (@Toripoet)
Clawson posting his Dachsund, getting the fur babies involved with a little bit of twisted humor and the caption “Posting a pic of my wiener online for #ThirstTrapThursday #PackersTwitter.” (@Lombardipackers)
Natty (@ninja_natwood) with the famous Aaron Rodger’s Toe photo, calling this photo the “Original Packers Thirst Trap.”
Alysa Z (@alysaz23) posted shirtless fans from the Minnesota game from Week 17 stating that they were ahead of the thirst trap game.
Dakota Mitchell (@dakmitch) and owner of Campeche Collective creating an entire line devoted to Packers Twitter “Thirst Trap Thursday.”
Other photos included Lambeau Field, beer, brats, cheese curds and, last but not least, the Lombardi Trophy. Several fans like Jason Perone (@JasonPerone) posted the 2011 Green Bay Packers hoisting the Lombardi Trophy after winning the Super Bowl.
Packer Twitter is electrified that Green Bay has the current top seed in the NFL Playoffs. There is definitely a thirst for a Super Bowl win.
