The Brief: Ok Zoomer is a possible response to Gen Zers who say "Ok Boomer."
Ok Zoomer is a dismissive insult that can be directed towards a member of Generation Z. It can be used by spiteful boomers or anyone else who the TikTok-loving generation may have upset. Ok Zoomer can be used as a serious drag, or as an ironic self-aware roast by zoomers themselves.
Perhaps “Ok Zoomer” marks the end of any meaning of these “Ok” quips. If everyone can use them, they may lose their power to insult and get lost in an echo chamber of intergenerational rivalry.
When someone starts bragging about their Bob the Builder knowledge…

Millenial: Ok Boomer
Boomer: Ok Zoomer
Gen-X: It's cool, whatever, I'll be over here listening to Pearl Jam, Biggie, Tupac, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Madonna, Van Halen, NIN, Wu-Tang, etc. and figuring out the secret of life and not tell any of you when I get it.
