What in the name of literally anything is going on?
Honestly, we're not entirely sure and we couldn't really tell you. That's for our other, more intrepid colleagues to report on (thank you for your service, Comrades). For our intents and purposes (lolz and only lolz), suffice it to say: Redditors conspired to bring up GameStop stocks by a lot of money, and seasoned investors are ... upset because they were banking on the opposite. Also, Elon Musk factors in somehow.
Okay, bon appetit!
@yourlocalebony is all of us, tbh.

As they say, with great power ...
Maybe the best part of this whole thing is that the GameStop Twitter account is just hanging out, tweeting about third-party video game controller cases pic.twitter.com/qh1iVJcjnc— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) January 28, 2021
GameStop is just a sweet summer child, and we're here for them right now.
