Wawa celebrated by Buzzfeed as ‘everything you need in this otherwise cruel world’
Everyone in Philly and its environs understands the greatness that is Wawa convenience stores and gas stations.
Now the good folks at Buzzfeed have paid tribute to Wawa in a new music video destined to go viral around Pennsylvania and South Jersey.
Called “15 reasons Wawa is more than just a convenience store,” and posted under the alternate title, “Why Wawa is everything you need in this otherwise cruel world,” the hypnotic video is set to thumping dance music backing a series of Wawa facts and trivia.
Reasons Wawa is more than just a convenience store:
There are currently 99 entries under Craigslist‘s Missed Connections section that include a reference to Wawa. Some of them are for hoagies, Buzzfeed says.
When legendary Phillies manager Charlie Emanuel was fired, in a photograph of him leaving the stadium he can be seen clutching a Wawa plastic bag.
Wawa sells about 70 million hoagies a year.
Wawa is 29 percent owned by its employees.
There are more stimulating facts in the video that will give you even more reason to love Wawa, even though you already do. Visit Buzzfeed for the full video.
