“HOLLA Dayz” is a regular series covering the best media surrounding holidays or occasions worth talking about. Brands, people, bots – they’re all fair game. See how others are celebrating socially and what you can learn from their messages!
Beer, Burgers and Buds … nothing says 4th of July like a weekend of patriotic shenanigans. From backyard barbecues to wild parties, Americans everywhere showed their nation love and support – and took to social media to express it.
Just for fun …

This tweet is right on the money, if it weren’t for the egregious spelling error …

One of the coolest things about the 4th of July is that it unites all Americans, regardless of race, class, religion … or celebrity status. Athletes, movie stars and musicians alike got in on the Independence Day action.
Is this really the best you can do, LeBron?

Some brands were surprisingly quiet on the 4th of July. Noticeably absent were: Ford Motor Co (the original “Made in the USA” brand), Bruce Springsteen (“Born in the USA” anyone?), Paramount Pictures and more.
This was all Pepsi had to say…

While others, like Levi’s, took a patriotic twist on branding.

BEST 4th of July HOLLA:
Need I say more?
But most importantly, the 4th of July is a reminder that America is a great place to live, regardless of political beliefs or partisanship. Though every nation has its problems, we are blessed to live in such a beautiful and accepting country, and we should celebrate and cherish our freedom each day.
