History

On May 26th, 2017, Hard Drive, a satirical news website about video game and nerd culture, was launched as a branch of satirical website The Hard Times. Hard Drive was cofounded by three former Hard Trimes contributors Jeremy Kaplowitz, Mike Amory and Mark Roebuck.

The website launched together with its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social media accounts, where it would share headlines and snippets of its articles.

Multiple snippets shared by the magazine on social media went viral (examples shown below). Additionally, many snippets and screenshots of its headlines received viral spread on social media, with the name of the publication often being cropped. On September 11th, 2017, Hard Drive posted its first article to go viral, a satirical news piece claiming that Nintendo had confirmed that Waluigi is uncircumsized (tweet shown below, left).
