A Hashtag Made A Bunch Of Canadians Think The OC Was Coming Back

This is sadder than when Seth sailed away at the end of season one.

Back in 2007, something tragic happened. The OC went off the air.

RIP Marissa and the defining show of this generation.

On Thursday, #TheOC2016 popped up in Canadian Twitter's trending topics.

People thought it meant the show was coming back!

...Only to realize it was a dirty lie.

WOW wtf, when u see #TheOC2016 is trending but its nothing to do with the show 😡😡 what a tease...twitter why u do dis to me

#TheOC2016 refers to the Ottawa Conference on Security and Defence.

When #TheOC2016 is trending and you think there's going to be a reunion. Turns out it's just about politics. This is the worst kind of tease

Politics, ruining everything like usual.

So much pain.

#TheOC2016 you have broken the hearts of OC fans all over the world. #hashtagfail

Seriously Ottawa Conference on Security & Defence, #TheOC2016 may be the worst troll jobbing hashtag ever. I need a vodka. #Marissa #OC4Ever

You are meaner than Caleb Nichol, Conference of Defence Associations Institute.

@JJSokolsky: Who are we comparing ourselves to & found wanting? Let's not start from position of apology #TheOC2016

Here's a better picture.
