Go Brrr

What does go brrr mean?

Solve a problem

Go brrr is a phrase applied to a machine or other item that can be used to "simply" solve a problem. The phrase was first used in the widely-shared Money Printer Go Brrr meme, which depicted the U.S. Federal Reserve printing money to combat a predicted, rona-induced economic downturn.

Since then, a variety of "go brrr" memes have popped up online, and forum posters and social media users have begun using the phrase to call attention to simple actions that could solve (or "solve") a problem. Sometimes, "go brr" is used straightforwardly, to point out how simply a problem can actually be solved. Other times, "go brrr" is used sarcastically, to point out that a seemingly-simple solution is inadequate or could cause unforeseen consequences.
