Memes, they are never going to end. We have just scratched the surface of this decade and there have still been enough fresh internet jokes to hold us back for a long time. Alas, we can not ask anyone to please quit memeing, particularly given the dwindling shelf life of how long jokes stay amusing, but we are dedicated to keeping up with this breakneck loop for the sake of handy material.
Internet memes have become the key mode of communication for Millennials, and particularly for Gen Z, with 48 percent of Millennials and more than half of Gen Z asking content creators to send memes several times a week, people literally create memes from text memes from twitter’s bomboclaat pictures. Memes may be anything from a move (like “dabbing”) or a fashion style (like hideous shoes), but most that take over the internet are usually semi-ironic jokes framed as text, GIFs, and photos that people can quickly imitate and create their own spins—from teenagers consuming Tide pods to the eternally blinking white man. And it is easy to see how often these memes have invaded teenagers on a regular basis. Only have a peek at Meme Day, which, as Pick Everything explains, is the theme of a dress-up day in contemporary high schools.
Today, the major labels are seeking to speak their own tongue. BBC aims to win back young audiences by introducing an app for children under the age of 13 to build and post GIFs, quizzes, memes, and more. Meanwhile, Facebook’s famously struggled to find a way to tempt teenagers with a scrolling memes app named Paddy that Mashable’s stories were called “cringey” and featuring weeks-old meme material (an eternity in Internet time). It was shut down quickly. Although attempting to lean on memes is not necessarily a failure for brands: the New York Times notes that Budweiser has managed to unleash an ad advertisement that has literally become a hashtag and scored lots of extra commitment. Even in recent years, the Twitter pages of several fast food companies have gone from simplistic promotional pitches to a relentless flood of meme reactions and reshares—and have attracted millions of followers in the process. Memes are used in conversation and marketing nowadays. They are the creative aspect that help spread smiles. Let’s check out the 5 famous memes that are quite popular among the new generation.
Living in 2020, you must have heard the term ‘Ok, boomer’, this is no doubt the most millennial and Gen Z thing to say, this became a meme to counter boring and adult-y things. We are not sure where this term came from but it is no doubt very funny. Although not the whole of Millennials fit in the criteria of Boomers but everyone was seen using this term to keep sourpusses at bay with their boring remarks.
First of all, let us clear the air here: this entire thing is a hoax; the broom cannot hold up on its own because of the gravitational powers of Saturn and Venus. Then why did we start taking videos of brooms standing up on their own? If you forget, we attempted this in 2012 and memes tend to get full circle at one stage or another, but here we are, with another Twitter user going viral to do the broom challenge. In this challenge people comedically make a broom stand upright.
LinkedIn / Facebook / Instagram / Tinder
Often known as the #DollyPartonChallenge, it was actually influenced by the Parton post itself, which is where this meme was meant to end; it remains the only decent one of these. Alas, it is not how it functions on the Internet, but our timelines have been exposed to a number of four-panel profile images for social networking platforms. Linkedin showing the business side while tinder showing a bit of the sexy side.
Everything is cake
In the summer of 2020, every resident of the World was compelled to pose himself the following question: Am I a person or am I a cake? The profound, existential confusion emerged from a single video, published by Turkish baker Tuba Geçkìl, which went viral via Buzzfeed’s Tasty Twitter handle, featuring a bunch of daily household items that looked perfectly natural before they were cut through with a knife and exposed to be hyper-realistic cakes. This created a funny trend of people questioning everything, from household items, to peoples and their own existence as cake! It started off as a professional showing his baking skills but ended up becoming a very funny meme and people created video memes showing that their spouses or families were cake all along.
A little context: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a long-running and beloved anime series which is also very bizarre, particularly with its dramatic-looking protagonists, and rapper Hello Apollo has remixed his theme song into a perfect Tik Tok song, “JoJo Pose.” So anime Tik Tok fans (of which there are many) have taken to reproduce some of the more intense screencaps and the more intense ones. That is gone past JoJo’s Bizarre Journey to another anime, either Naruto or the Haikyuu boys’ high school volleyball series!! Also non-animal associated phenomenon, such as images of Adam Driver in very specific positions. It is odd, yes, but it is also really enjoyable!
