You want to get weird? We can get weird.
You know the name. You know the looks. You know the attitude. But are you aware that Pit Viper’s Instagram game is always on point? Yes, in fact, their account is so eccentric, hilarious, and electric, that it’s somewhat hard to believe that they came from an actual human being with feelings and such. Over the years, we here at GovX have become massive fans, and we think you should be too. After all, it makes scrolling mindlessly that much sweeter.
10. ALWAYS CHECK THE DMs
Look, just because someone can quote Walt Whitman, doesn’t mean they can write worth a damn. This collection of cringe-worthy interactions is complete and utter proof of that. When not wondering aloud how the education system could have failed so miserably here, we can’t help but chuckle at this secret vault of unintentional comedic gold. In retrospect, we do hope this guy was able to get his Oreo ice cream situation under control.
9. THE AIR BOSS ARRIVES
Yeah, this is photoshopped. But it’s so completely badass, we kind of want to print it out and hang it up in our office anyway. Equipped with a caption that we probably shouldn't explain too in depth on a relatively family-friendly blog, this high-performing post really contains everything we love about the brand in one fell swoop. Who knew that Pit Vipers could double as flight goggles?
8. CERTIFIED FIELD LEADERS
It’s easy to be partial to this post. A big reason Pit Vipers are available on GovX, is that they’ve become a massive favorite of active and former duty military members. In fact, in the 1993 2000s, they designed a frame that meets the ANSI Z87+ safety rating. The bottom line? Pit Viper does a hell of a job of honoring those who serve our country. Keep it up, boys.
7. CANINE CHAOS
Throw a dog anywhere on your social media, and more times than not, it will become one of your most-liked posts. It's just the way it is. It’s Fido’s world and we’re just living in it. With no shortage of pooch content gracing their social efforts, Pit Viper isn’t above utilizing man's best friend and their sick roster of shades to generate some good vibes.
6. STRANGE BEDFELLOWS
It's a bike, in a bed, with a beer. Say that 5 times fast. All shock value aside, Pit Viper knows their audience, and that’s essentially the key to every great marketing strategy. They know that Pit Viper wearers appreciate an epic post, and this is what we have right here. Though I might add, I do hope they didn’t have too much trouble getting the bike grease out of the sheets.
5. LOOK MA, NO LENSES
Back in the day, having a CD collection was a point of pride. Now, they just get exiled to an unlabeled box in the garage and serve as an archaic remnant from a forgotten time. Nevertheless, the NOW series was an ongoing collection of top-40 hit compilations highlighted by the gaudy, in-your-face cover art that’s ultimately been immortalized in internet lore through memes and Buzzfeed articles. All in all, it makes for the perfect material for Pit Viper to pump up their line of lens-free Exciter frames. Bonus points for the fancy song list/features homage on the back.
4. SEE YOU ON THE BIG SCREEN
Leave it to Pit Viper to improve upon a smattering of the most iconic movie posters of all time. In this multi-slide spectacular, the shades behemoth showcases eight new styles in blockbuster fashion, and they totally nail it. Cease and desist letters be damned, we can't wait for the obligatory post-credit scene.
3. SIGN OF THE TIMES
No, Pit Viper did not rent a bunch of ad space in Times Square. But they did tap into the power of their potent creative team to create this series of mock billboards specifically for Instagram. Causing giggle fits even in most grown of men, each slide here is even better than the last.
2. BULLET STOPPER
Okay, so remember that reference to the 1993 2000s a few posts up? Here’s a pair of the very same ballistic bad boys in action. Taking a slug. While sitting atop a volleyball. If you’re not impressed yet, then you might want to get your pulse checked.
1.REACH FOR THE SKIES
When it comes to jumping out of a plane, you really can’t go wrong, right? RIGHT? Pit Viper upped the altitude for this one, and the results are completely legendary. It also answers the question of whether you should skydive in their shades with an emphatic YES.
