  • 01/25/16--14:19: Handegg
  • Work In Progress!

    Overview

    Handegg is a foreign and derogatory slang word for American football due to the shape of the ball and the fact that American football players often hold the ball while running instead of kicking it (with the exception of field goals and punts). The term is most often used by Non-Americans, specifically the British. Non-Americans often call American football “handegg” mainly because they may have been offended when Americans have called European football “soccer.”

    History

    Although the exact origins of the term is not known, a 2014 CBS Sports article suggests that the name may have originated from a 1909 comment to the New York Times in the following image below.



    Online Presence

    In 2009, Urban Dictionary user Pat E. Cakes submitted the following definition for handegg as, "American football. As opposed to football/soccer, where players actually kick a ball with their feet, american football involves players carrying an egg-shaped object in their hands. " The definition is currently the #1 entry for handegg with 3032 upvotes.

    Throughout sites such as Facebook, 4chan’s /sp/, Reddit, etc., online users have often used the term handegg to mock fans of American football and their interest in the sport especially when the Super Bowl is taking place. During Super Bowl XLIX on February 1, 2015, British users on Twitter spread the hashtag #handegg to make fun of people watching the game. Some online users also make image memes to explain the difference between soccer and American football and why American football should be call handegg and why soccer should be called football.

    iDubbbz created his channel August 12th, 2012. His first video, uploaded August 30th, 2012, is of him playing the Holiday levels of the game Overgrowth. iDubbbz continued to upload gaming videos on his channel, until March 18th, 2013, when he released his first “Gaming News Crap” video, which was the origin of his Kickstarter crap series.



    Although iDubbbz kept making gaming videos, his more popular series, Kickstarter Crap, and Bad Unboxing took a higher priority over these videos, as they slowly got uploaded at a higher rate.

    Videos

    Kickstarter Crap



    Kickstarter Crap is a series, in which iDubbbz goes over poor quality Kickstarter projects, going over the specifics of a Kickstarter and showing the poor quality of some Kickstarters. He also created a spin-off, Indiegogo Excrement, which holds a similar use, just for Indiegogo projects.

    Content Cop



    Content Cop is a series in which iDubbbz goes over channels and videos from YouTube which he calls out for bad content. Despite being a relatively new series, it has become one of the largest, with the first 3 videos released gaining approximately 2 million views.

    Bad Unboxing



    Bad Unboxing is a series in which he opens packages of fan mail. A common joke in the series is the name on the packages, often using callbacks from previous videos (using names parodying his last name, which has never been stated, edups, or simply using the name Gay Niggerfaggot). Another common joke in the series is the use of money shots before opening each box.

    Hey! That’s Pretty Good



    Hey! That’s Pretty Good is a reaction image of YouTuber iDubbbz, from the video Dumbass Gets PewDiePie Tattoo, which was uploaded on the Filthy Frank channel. The gif gained notoriety from the fans of both YouTubers.

    About

    Dillon the Hacker (also known as Dillon Prescot Henderson) is as his name normally suggests, a hacker. He is widely known for his rant videos on famous YouTuber PewDiePie.

    Biography

    Henderson was born In Mesa, Arizona. His best friend is Kevin or well known as BG Kumbi. They go to the same school. Kevin supports Henderson’s videos & promotes his channel to help him gain more fans. His dad is always working as a supervisor on offshore oil-rigs, So he doesn’t know what Henderson is making on YouTube. His mom hears him making his videos, and Henderson has explained to her what he is doing on YouTube, but she is out of touch with the Internet and doesn’t really understand what YouTube is. Henderson says he had a girlfriend called: Pupinia Stewart, and that “they will rule the world.” In 2015, they broke up.

    4Chan’s war against Dillon

    At the start of the war, Henderson told 4chan: “This is your warning 4chan. You do not want to cross a professional hacker“. After what Henderson said, members of 4chan started randomly putting images of internet’s cat lovers, porn addicts, and pranksters all gathered to hang out.
    They ignored his warnings and found his address in Arizona. But then members of 4chan found out that it was a bait by Henderson. The fake address was tweeted by him.
    The screengrab of the location of Henderson was posted by an unknown anonymous member named John Smith. Smith scrubbed his YouTube account of all his comments, leaving the YouTube account with 10 YouTube videos.
    Programmers created automated programs called Scripts, So they can compare followers of: BGKumbi & StraightUpStreet. But after Dillon confirmed that BGKubmi & TraightUpStreet are members of a hacking group called The Meme Krew. Then BGKumbi said: “Not only are we going to take down 4chan, we’re going to take down Funnyjunk and Reddit as well."

    Account Hacking

    Prior, Dillon’s YouTube account was hacked. He revealed that his account was hacked 4 months after the incident and that he was hacked by an anonymous member named Derrick (who also hacked his older YouTube channel). He made his new YouTube channel called Dillon Prescott Henderson. His first video was uploaded on May 10. But in the video, Henderson threatened Derrick. So Derrick became mad and made a video response. His first video on his new account has been removed by YouTube, along with Derrick’s.

    Dillon asked PewDiePie to help him get his channel back. He didn’t want to, but at the end he did and Dillon continued making videos on his new channel as well on his old channel until the new one was deactivated under unknown circumstances.

  • Please note, this entry is a work in progress. Any help would be appreciated.

    About

    Cat Keyhole Bra (Chinese: 猫咪镂空刺绣荷花边抹胸, lit. Openwork Cat Bra) (Japanese: ねこランジェリー, lit. “Cat Lingerie”) is a set of lingerie designed by Nonori and sold by China based online retailer Taobao.[2][6] The set features a bra with a cat head shaped cut-out in the centre, which reveals the chest of the wearer. A sudden popularity surge led to the outfit becoming a new fetish fad in January 2016, much like the Keyhole Turtleneck the previous year.

    Origin

    WIP

    The clothing set first appeared for sale on Taobao as part of the Nonori collection of clothing. Following its release, a single piece of fanart of the clothing first appeared on Pixiv in July 2015.[1] In late January 2016, a sudden surge in popularity occurred, leading to many more pieces of fanart being created for the outfit, mainly by Japanese fans.



    Precursor: Keyhole Turtleneck

    In December 2014, Japanese cosplayr Myako (みゃこ) tweeted photos of a keyhole turtleneck sweater and herself wearing it, which was immediately shared on the social web. Inspired by the sexy keyhole turtleneck, illustrators began creating their own illustrations featuring or parodying it on Twitter, pixiv and Nico Nico Seiga. After a week the amount of illustrations had already surpassed 1,000. This popularity was also noticed by several Japanese clothing retailers, such as online retailer Rakuten[5] releasing a version featuring a catface around the keyhole.



    Spread

    WIP

    The artwork, typically featuring characters from various anime series wearing the attire, was posted to sites such as Pixiv[3], Twitter[4] and DeviantArt. These illustrations had amounted to over 100 within the first day of the fad beginning.

  • 01/26/16--15:18: Monty Oum
  • About

    Monty Oum is a self-taught animator and screenwriter. His crossover fighting videos gained him the attention of several video game and Internet production companies, most notably Rooster Teeth. Along with contributing to Rooster Teeth’s popular machinima series Red vs. Blue, he created the original web animation series RWBY.

    Online History

    Haloid

    Haloid, Monty’s first published work. depicts a Spartan from Halo, Bungie Studio’s FPS video game series, fighting Samus Aran from Metroid, Nintendo’s action-adventure video game series. Using assets from Halo 2 and Super Smash Bros. Melee, Monty shows the two characters pitting their universe’s arsenal of weapons, as well as their own unique abilities and skills, against each other and eventually against the Covenant enemies of the Halo universe. The video’s conclusion also fully reveals the secrets inherent to the two combatants. Haloid would prove to be Rooster Teeth’s introduction to Monty’s work, but their partnership would not be realized until 2010[1].

    Dead Fantasy

    Monty would follow up Haloid with one of his most famous series where characters from Square Enix’s Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts series fought characters from Tecmo’s Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series. Although the series appears to have been made purely for fanservice, Dead Fantasy 5 shows glimpses into a sinister plot involving DOATEC, the antagonist of the Dead or Alive series, capturing the Final Fantasy characters for research purposes. Besides the five installments in the series, three more episodes were in development, alongside two released music videos featuring the characters dancing.

  • 01/26/16--16:59: The FitnessGram Pacer Test
  • The FitnessGram Pacer(Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run) Test is a test used in American schools that tests the cardio abilities of children. The test is usually made fun of due to its Battle Royale like “last-child-standing” nature, the scared reactions of children who learn they have to take it, the goofy music that plays as you run that signifies laps, or the voice of the man who says instructions.

    Origin

    According to The official Pacer Test handbook, the Pacer test was created in 1982 by Leger and Lambert in 1982, claiming it to be an effective and fun way to measure the cardio abilities of a group of children.

    The Test and How it Works

    Since its creation, the Pacer test has been used in many schools to measure the abilities of the children, who see it as a race due to the organization of the actual test. Children are told to stand in a line, and run across a 20 meter space when they hear a chime on the tape. If a child fails to make it across before the next chime twice, they are out and have to sit and watch their classmates try to finish after everyone else. This is usually seen as an embarrassment, and leads to ridicule among peers, with insults such as “X is so lazy. He only made it past 10 beeps on the Pacer!” Due to this, the Pacer is generally seen with contention and resentment by children who have grown into adults that had to take it every year.

    Immortalization as a Meme

    In early 2016, the Pacer Test was turned into a Vine/ifunny trend with comical/shocking videos of people running. Though the origin of the meme is unknown, one of the earliest known uses of the test as a joke is that of ifunny user “TheGoldenDarkness”, who made a Vine that makes fun of the voice of the instructor by placing it over an annoying noise from a tv show (Below)



    This sparked a new trend that has been slowly taking the attention of Vine users, and has infected ifunny.

  • 01/27/16--12:58: #TonyTigerGate
  • Overview

    #TonyTigerGate is the hashtag name given to an ongoing scandal surrounding the massive block of Twitter users who identify as furries by @RealTonyTiger, the official Twitter account for Tony the Tiger brand of Kellogg’s breakfast cereal, in response to a flood of lewd and lascivious demands tweeted at the corporate account by members of the furry fandom. Although the raid began in November 2015, the blocking began months later in January 2016.

    Background

    The Twitter account for Tony the Tiger[1] was launched on July 30th, 2013, but didn’t create its first tweet until September 18th of that year which simply read “Hello Twitter.”[2] Since then, the account frequently creates tweets by the character, often featuring themes such as his breakfast cereal Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes and sports to match Tony’s sports enthusiast personality; with Tony the Tiger photoshopped into the pictures. The character itself is officially Tony Jr, the second generation Tony the Tiger and son of the first Tony.[3]



    Notable Developments

    On November 4th, 2015, Gawker first noticed the sudden influx of furries replying to Tony the Tiger with lewd and lascivious demands, featuring several in an article about it titled “Tony the Tiger Can’t Tweet Without Furries Begging Him for Sex.”[4] The official tweet[5] created alongside the article was also posted on the r/justneckbeardthings sub-Reddit,[6] where it managed to get over 300 upvotes in the following few months. The next day, several other news sites also created articles mentioning the tweets, including Bustle,[7] Deathandtaxes[8] and The Daily Dot.[9]



    On January 26th, 2016, @realtonytiger started blocking furries who followed the account, making no difference between Twitter accounts who replied to the account and simple blocking furries in general (shown below). Following many furries reacting to the blocks on Twitter, several news sites made articles about the blocks and its reactions, including Gawker,[10] Metro UK[11] and Huffington Post.[12] Furries and supporters of @realtonytiger subsequently shared their reactions on the #TonyTigerGate hashtag.[14]



    Following the bans by @realtonytiger, several furries started looking for a new Twitter account to follow. Initially they went to the official Twitter account for Pizza Hut, @pizzahut, after it coincidentally created a tweet featuring the word “knot,”[14] which also refers to a canine’s penis[15] and is used in the furry fandom as a slang term for an erection. Later that day, other furries stumbled accross the official Twitter account of Chester Cheetah, the official mascot for Cheetos brand snacks, and respectively asked him to be their “daddy”.[17] Suprisingly to many, the Twitter account replied positively, after which many furries started following the account and sending tweets to it. Both the blocks by @realtonytiger and the welcoming by @ChesterCheetah were subsequently documented by various news sites, including Paper Magazine,[13] Uproxx[18] and Buzzfeed.[19] On January 27th, Kellog’s provided BuzzFeed[19] with a statement about the blocking of all the furries:

    “As a company grounded in the values of integrity and respect, we recognize people’s right to creative expression, but we reserve the right to block individuals who post offensive content.”

  • 01/27/16--13:37: Nihilism
  • About

    Nihilism is a branch of philosophy typically associated with existential nihilism, which asserts that the universe lacks cosmic or objective meaning and that life has no intrinsic value.

    Online History

    On March 21st, 2005, Urban Dictionary[9] user Johnnywang submitted an entry for nihilism with the description “it’s pointless to define it.” On October 6th, 2006, Xkcd[8] published a comic titled “Nihilism,” featuring a dialogue between two stick figure characters about the lack of cosmic meaning in the universe (shown below).



    On November 21st, 2007, a page for nihilism was created on the Rational Wiki.[5] On May 22nd, 2009, the /r/nihilism[4] subreddit was launched for discussions about the philosophical position. On August 27th, 2010, a page was created for the “Straw Nihilist” on the website TV Tropes,[7] describing it as a philosophical character often identified as a bleak scientific materialist:

    “The basis for the Straw Nihilist is usually extreme scientific empirical materialism; we’re all nothing but matter and energy and eventually the universe is going to die as if we never existed, so what’s the point in trying to hope and fantasize in a world full of suffering and destruction where morality is dictated by force.

  • About

    Casey Neistat is a prominent YouTube vlogger known for his videos which often combine issue advocacy and stunts. He is also the co-founder of the social network Beme.

    Background

    Neistat was raised in Connecticut, and worked as a bike messenger before beginning to work with his brother, Van. The two began making films for the artist Tom Sachs before creating their own films independently.[2]

    Online History

    Rare for a prominent YouTuber, Neistat and his brother, who formed a production company called the Neistat Brothers, began creating viral videos before the video streaming service was invented. His first was in 2003, when he found that the battery on his original iPod had died after 18 months of use. After being told by Apple customer service that the battery was irreplaceable and that he should just buy a new iPod, Neistat created a film around his defacement of Apple advertisements with the slogan “iPod’s Dirty Little Secret.” Neistat hosted the film on a site of the same name, and purportedly received over 110,000 downloads in its initial 48 hours. Apple eventually changed its policy in regards to the iPod’s battery as a direct result of the video.[4]



    The Neistat Brothers created and optioned a television show to HBO and it premiered in 2008, but it only lasted one season.[3] Casey Neistat’s second viral video hit came in 2010, when he attached one of the first GoPro models to his bicycle helmet and rode through the bike lanes of New York City, making observations about how dangerous it is to ride by staying in the bike lane, even when it was blocked by someone double parking, causing him to crash into the many obstructions. The film received acclaim for its humor and received mainstream press in publications like the Guardian[5] and the New York Times.[6]



    Neistat has made many other viral videos, including ones that focused on the streaming service ChatRoulette, his grandmother’s history and life, and subway emergency procedures. He has also directed several structured and free-form commercials. On March 25th, 2015, Neistat began recording daily vlogs. In early 2016, during the Winter Stom Jonas, Neistat recorded a video of himself snowboarding through the streets of New York City while being dragged by a car; the video quickly became his third most popular of all time, with over 11 million views in three days.

    Beme

    In 2015, Neistat announced that he was cofounding Beme,[7] a video sharing social network where the user only shares videos that are captured with the away-facing camera, without the ability to preview or review. Similar to Snapchat, after the user views a shared Beme, the message is gone forever; however, if they would like to respond, they can record a real-time selfie while they view the message, allowing the original creator to see their reactions. Beme has received both praise and criticism, with some finding the method of interaction conducive to authenticity, while some finding the authenticity that results to be “boring,” as one writer wrote in Wired.[8]

    Online Presence

    Neistat joined YouTube in 2010 and as of January 27th, has over 2 million subscribers to his main channel.[9] He also has two other channels, Casey Neistat Snapchat Stories[10] and Casey Neistat Classics,[11] which have over 81,000 subscribers and 79,000 subscribers respectively. Neistat has over 709,000 followers on Instagram,[12] and 359,000 followers on Twitter,[13] as well as an unknown but substantial following on Snapchat.
