Last night’s MTV Movie Awards had no shortage of buzz-worthy social moments. The network had been prepping its social strategy since early March, employing boy blogger band Our2ndLife to promote the show, and introducing a Tumblr War Room with social influencers coming together to react to the show’s highlights in real-time. The War Room was on point, making memes and GIFs of the night’s best moments minutes after they happened. The buzz started when Grumpy Cat made a red carpet appearance sporting Pharrell’s mountain hat and peaked toward the end of the show when Zac Efron had his shirt ripped off on stage by Rita Ora.
