Does this old tweet prove that Thanos is Mr. Clean?



mr clean thanos world clean tweet

Mr. Clean, the mascot of the brand of household cleaners, is a bald, muscular man who is, by his own admission, a clean freak. Thanos, also bald, is a thicc Marvel supervillain whose goal is to wipe out half of all living beings in the universe. The men are sort of similar in appearance, and their goals are eerily aligned—an obsession with “cleansing” the world.

Now, an old tweet from the official Mr. Clean account has the internet speculating whether Mr. Clean and Thanos are actually the same person.

“I wish for world clean,” the tweet from Sept. 4, 2014 reads, above an image of Mr. Clean looking at a shooting star in the distance.

It probably seemed like an innocent brand tweet at the time to the social media manager who posted the image. But in 2018, when Nazis are harassing people on Twitter and immigrant children are being held at “detention centers,” a tweet about a mascot wishing for “world clean” comes off very disturbing.

People on Twitter discovered the old tweet, and it went viral over the weekend.

For many people, it seemed like Mr. Clean was thinking about more than cleaning products. And that’s when the Thanos comparisons began.

So is Mr. Clean really Thanos? The character of Mr. Clean was created in 1958, while Thanos first appeared in comics in 1973. So it looks like… Thanos may actually be Mr. Clean. Woah.
