If you've ever found yourself in a bar, at a party, or anywhere you might come across Millennials, basically, and heard someone shout: "Ain't no laws when you're drinking claws, baby," and thought, "whaa?," you're not alone.
For anyone that doesn't concern themselves with meme culture, the whole White Claw movement might very well have passed you by. You might be wondering "what it is about this alcoholic carbonated water that has got the kids going wild?" Well, the truth is, fads are beautiful, unexplainable, and inexplicable things.
Remember when everyone was twirling fidget spinners around their fingers like there was no tomorrow? Remember when the side that you took in the Pepsi-Cola wars said something about you as a person? How about the more recent craze with everyone fighting tooth and nail to get their hands on one of the limited edition Pop-Eyes chicken burgers?
Fads just happen and, if you're around to get caught up in one, then you might as well jump on that bandwagon and ride it all the way. YOLO, right? So continue scrolling to learn why the fact that you can now get a sexy White Claw Halloween costume is a big deal.
Heck, by the time you've read this, you'll have a can of mango-flavored White Claw in your hand and you won't even know how it got there.
Fads are weird.

So how did White Claw become cool?
via: ShutterstockWell, I mean, with memes, something can be claimed an ironic way but then, through its journey through the meme world, become so big that people forget why it became such a thing and it actually becomes popular.
Did White Claw become "badass?"The White Claw memes all asserted ironically that drinking White Claw made you act against the law... This soon became a thing that people confused with truth... or at least converted what was previously understood to be a lame beverage, into a liquor-based drink that made you a rebel.
Naturally, it's only funny because White Claws is not hard liquor...
YouTuber, Trevor Wallace, was at the forefront of the WC movement.After posting a parody video wherein he joked about how great White Claw was, it went viral. The video contained many quotable moments which subsequently got turned into memes.
"White Claw summer 2019, baby!"Or I suppose, now, with the new Halloween costume, people will be saying: "White Claw Halloween 2019, baby!"
Wallace made White Claw a drink for dudes.Before his parody video, no guy would be seen dead drinking this "girly" alcoholic seltzer. After White Claw became a viral trend, things changed.
This annoyed some people.

Personally, I'd sooner wear something like this for Halloween.
This year, I'm feeling Cousin Itt...
via: Fancydress.comI've always said that, if I could grow my hair out long enough, I'd go as The Addams Family character, Cousin Itt. This costume I've found online provides all the hair I'd need!
But if I wanted to be current...
via: Yandy.comI'd, instead, opt for the costume of the season: the sexy White Claw outfit. The white tee reads the meme-d slogans: "Outlaw" and "Party Hard" and the ensemble, in general, gives off badass vibes. The costume is currently being stocked by an online fashion merchandiser, Yandy. If you're down to fork out $54.95 on your Halloween costume, then go right ahead.
