  • 03/05/16--19:54: GilvaSunner
  • About

    “GilvaSunner” (or just simply known as GilvaSunner on the site) is a parody account of the videogame music uploading account, GilvaSunner. If this sounds confusing, that’s the intent. Some believe it is trolling due to their format being identical to that of the official GilvaSunner channel, which gave information on the artists, video artwork, and song titles (usually ones that were found on the game’s respective OST.)


    In late 2014 the original GilvaSunner page made a post on Twitter saying that he would not be uploading anymore songs due to fear of having the channel being taken down because of copyright claims. Though, he is still active on Twitter and is allowing/helping with the project.

    Format

    A large amount on the videos are remixes of the classic television show “The Flintstones” theme, though they aren’t limited to that. Some other popular songs used are Quad City DJs – Space Jam Theme Song, Take On Me, GANGNAMSTYLE, among hundreds of others.


    On Nov 6, 2014, Vinesauce Joel posted a video showcasing highlights from a previous stream where he played bootleg NES games. One of these was “MARIO 7,” which was actually titled “GRANDDAD,” and was actually a ROM hack of the game The Flintstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak. This, of course, is where The Flintstones theme is used to parody.


    In some videos, you can even hear recycled clips from Joel from the video.




    Minor Changes/Actions

    As a hidden easter egg, there is a “GRANDDAD” (aka the bootleg Mario) in the channel’s banner, which is from the game “Tengami.”


    Original banner:


    OG Banner


    Close-up of the “GRANDDAD” banner:

    GRAND DAD


    Since the account name had been already taken by the original Gilva, the team simply replaced the lowercase “L” with an uppercase “I,” which to the common person appears like a lowercase “L.”


    The channel is ultimately identically the same aesthetically as the official GilvaSunner, mostly. The description is the same but with an added line saying:


    (Every video is submitted by a small group of content creators with their approval)


    This line was added to clarify that none of the content is being stolen from the original creators. The entire staff of the contributors is located on the right side of the screen in the “Uitgelichte kanalen” side bar, which is Dutch for “Featured Channels.”


    Suprisingly, roughly every hour the channel uploads one to two videos around the clock. Depending on the comment, the team will also reply pretending as-if nothing is wrong. Example:

    +Backbiter835 I only upload official video game rips.

    Spread

    Currently, the channel has over 1,000,000 views and roughly 11,000 subscribers.


    The account was created on Jan 9, 2016 and within the same day published the video “Wild Pokémon Battle – Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire.” This video started the trend for a majority of the videos on the channel.



    The most viewed video posted on the channel is “Slider – Super Mario 64,” which has garnered over 72,000 views in a week.



    This was the first video Joel has acknowledged, which may be the reason why it is so well known. He went on to comment:

    Then, days later Joel went on to make a tweet regarding the channel.

  • 03/06/16--06:51: Literally Me


  • About

    “Literally Me” refers to an image of the Looney Tunes character Daffy Duck in a purple and yellow suit posing dramatically. The meme is frequently associated with JoJo’s Bizzarre Adventure stands. The image is also frequently accompanied by a copypasta of the poster describing the image as “literally me”.

    Origin

    The image comes from a scene in Looney Tunes cartoon short Book Revue, originally released in 1946[7].


    The first use of the original image of Daffy Duck was in the 4chan /co/ thread “ITT: characters that are essentially you”. In the thread, the image of Daffy Duck was paired with the words, “For me it’s Daffy Duck – intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor.” was posted January 13th, 2015, in reference to Intelligent, Nihilistic and with a Wicked Sense of Humor.[2]



    Spread

    As of March 6th, 2016 a search for literally me on DesuStorage for /co/ contains over 500 results.[4] A post of the image accompanied by the text “Daffy’s Bizarre Adventure.jpg” was posted to tumblr on May 30th 2015. As of March 2016 the post has gained over 9 thousand notes.[14] On March 1st, 2016 a post was made to the reddit subreddit /r/OutOfTheLoop asking what the joke is behind the Literally Me picture.[1]



    Copypasta

    The image has been frequently associated with a copypasta of the poster repeatedly stating the character is “literally me.” The first use of the copypasta is in a /co/ thread, “ITT: Characters that are literally, undeniably, without question, you”. In the thread the copypasta was posted along with a picture of Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty. The post was made on November 17th, 2015.[5]



    The first use of the copypasta accompanied by the image is a thread on /co/ entitled “ITT: Characters that are literally you”.[8] The thread was posted January 21st, 2016.



    This is me. Literally me. No other character can come close to relating to me like this. There is no way you can convince me this is not me. This character could not possibly be anymore me. It’s me, and nobody can convince me otherwise. If anyone approached me on the topic of this not possibly being me, then I immediately shut them down with overwhelming evidence that this character is me.

    This character is me, it is indisputable. Why anyone would try to argue that this character is not me is beyond me. If you held two pictures of me and this character side by side, you’d see no difference. I can safely look at this character every day and say “Yup, that’s me”. I can practically see this character every time I look at myself in the mirror. I go outside and people stop me to comment how similar I look and act to this character. I chuckle softly as I’m assured everyday this character is me in every way. I can smile each time I get out of bed every morning knowing that I’ve found my identity with this character and I know my place in this world. It’s really quite funny how similar this character is to me, it’s almost like we’re identical twins. When I first saw this character, I had an existential crisis. What if this character was the real me and I was the fictional being. What if this character actual became aware of my existence? Did this character have the ability to become self aware itself?

    Zoot Suit Tom Crossover

    “Zoot Suit Tom”, also known as “One More Time” in reference to That Fucking Cat, is a picture of the character Tom from Tom and Jerry dressed in a Zoot Suit.[12] The character is often depicted as a rival to Literally Me. The image originates from the 1944 Tom and Jerry episode, The Zoot Cat.[13]



    The Zoot Cat (1944)by iadb

    The first mention of the characters being paired together is in the /co/ general drawthread, where a user requested a drawing of the characters having a pose off from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.[6]



    The first post where Zoot Suit Tom is referred to as One More Time is in the /co/ drawthread, where a poster drew a picture of Zoot Suit Tom and Literally Me as a JoJo stands. The image was posted on February 25th, 2016. On February 29th, 2016 a video of Literally Me and One More Time as stands from JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure was uploaded to YouTube. As of March 2016 the video has gained over 25 thousand views.

  • 03/06/16--19:01: Black Eyed Children
  • About

    Black-Eyed Children, also known as Black-Eyed Kids and its acronym BEK, is an internet urban legend in the form of creepypastas and alleged first-hand reports of encounters with strange pale-skinned children having deep black irisless eyes extending to the entirety of the sclera. Starting in a Usenet newsgroup mailing list in the end of the 1990s, the stories became quite a curiosity online following the release of an indie film as well as several news articles covering strange phenomena taking place in Cannock Chase, UK in the early 2010s. They eventually led to alleged spin-off sightings of other entities known as White-Eyed Kids (WEKs), some kind of opposite demonic faction to the black-eyed ones.

    Origin

    On January 16th, 1998, writer and Abilene Reporter News journalist Brian Bethel wrote a lenghty post[1] in the alt.folklore.ghost-stories Usenet newsgroup (archived 6/11/2001) recounting a strange event that happened to him two years prior, in which he claimed to have met two black-eyed boys asking him to let them into his car in a parking lot in front of a theater in Abilene, Texas.

    My Internet Service Provider used to have offices in a shopping center
    before they moved to their (comparatively) lush accommodations elsewhere.
    There was a drop box at that original location. The monthly bill was due,
    and thus, there but for the Grace of the Net I went.
    It was about 9:30 p.m. when I left. From my relatively isolated apartments,
    it’s about 10-15 minutes or so to downtown (Abilene has a population of
    about 110,000).

    Right next to Camalott Communications’ old location is a $1.50 movie
    theater. At the time, the place was featuring that masterwork of modern
    film, Mortal Kombat. I drove by the theater on the way into the center
    proper and pulled into an empty parking space.

    Using the glow of the marquee to write out my check, I was startled to hear
    a knock on the driver’s-side window of my car.

    I looked over and saw two children staring at me from street. I need to
    describe them, with the one feature (you can guess what it was) that I
    didn’t realize until about half-way through the conversation cleverly
    omitted.

    Both appeared to be in that semi-mystical stage of life children get into
    where you can’t exactly tell their age. Both were boys, and my initial
    impression is that they were somewhere between 10-14.

    Boy No. 1 was the spokesman. Boy No. 2 didn’t speak during the entire
    conversation -- at least not in words.

    Boy No. 1 was slightly taller than his companion, wearing a pull-over,
    hooded shirt with a sort of gray checked pattern and jeans. I couldn’t see
    his shoes. His skin was olive-colored and had curly, medium-length brown
    hair. He exuded an air of quiet confidence.

    Boy No. 2 had pale skin with a trace of freckles. His primary characteristic
    seemed to be looking around nervously. He was dressed in a similar manner to
    his companion, but his pull-over was a light green color. His hair was a
    sort of pale orange.

    They didn’t appear to be related, at least directly.

    “Oh, great,” I thought. “They’re gonna hit me up for money.” And then the
    air changed.

    I’ve explained this before, but for the benefit of any new lurkers out
    there, right before I experience something strange, there’s a change in
    perception that comes about which I describe in the above manner. It’s
    basically enough time to know it’s too late. ;)

    So, there I was, filling out a check in my car (which was still running) and
    in a sudden panic over the appearance of two little boys. I was confused,
    but an overwhelming sense of fear and unearthliness rushed in nonetheless.

    The spokesman smiled, and the sight for some inexplicable reason chilled my
    blood. I could feel fight-or-flight responses kicking in. Something, I knew
    instinctually, was not right, but I didn’t know what it could possibly be.

    I rolled down the window very, very slightly and asked “Yes?”

    The spokesman smiled again, broader this time. His teeth were very, very
    white.

    “Hey, mister, what’s up? We have a problem,” he said. His voice was that of
    a young man, but his diction, quiet calm and … something I still couldn’t
    put my finger on … made my desire to flee even greater. “You see, my
    friend and I want to see the films, but we forgot our money,” he continued.
    “We need to go to our house to get it. Want to help us out?”

    Okay. Journalists are required to talk to lots of people, and that includes
    children. I’ve seen and spoken to lots of them. Here’s how that usually
    goes:

    “Uh … M … M … Mister? Can I see that camera? I … I won’t break it or
    anything. I promise. My dad has a camera, and he lets me hold it sometimes,
    I guess, and I took a picture of my dog -- it wasn’s very good, ’cause I got
    my finger in the way and …”

    Add in some feet shuffling and/or body swaying and you’ve got a typical kid
    talking to a stranger.

    In short, they’re usually apologetic. People generally teach children that
    when they talk to adults, they’re usually bothering them for one reason or
    another and they should at least be polite.

    This kid was in no way fitting the mold. His command of language was
    incredible and he showed no signs of fear. He spoke as if my help was a
    foregone conclusion. When he grinned, it was as if he was trying to say, “I
    know something … and you’re NOT gonna like it. But the only way you’re
    going to find out what it is will be to do what I say …”

    “Uh, well …” was the best reply I could offer.

    Now here’s where it starts to get strange.

    The quiet companion looked at the spokesman with a mixture of confusion and
    guilt on his face. He seemed in some ways shocked, not with his friend’s
    brusque manner but that I didn’t just immediately open the door.

    He eyed me nervously.

    The spokesman seemed a bit perturbed, too. I still was registering something
    wrong with both.

    “C’mon, mister,” the spokesman said again, smooth as silk. Car salesmen
    could learn something from this kid. “Now, we just want to go to our house.
    And we’re just two little boys.”

    That really scared me. Something in the tone and diction again sent off
    alarm bells. My mind was frantically trying to process what it was
    perceiving about the two figures that was “wrong.”

    “Eh. Um ….” was all I could manage. I felt myself digging my fingernails
    into the steering wheel.

    “What movie were you going to see?” I asked finally.

    “Mortal Kombat, of course,” the spokesman said. The silent one nodded in
    affirmation, standing a few paces behind.

    “Oh,” I said. I stole a quick glance at the marquee and at the clock in my
    car. Mortal Kombat had been playing for an hour, the last showing of the
    evening.

    The silent one looked increasingly nervous. I think he saw my glances and
    suspected that I might be detecting something was not above-board.

    “C’mon, mister. Let us in. We can’t get in your car until you do, you know,”
    the spokesman said soothingly. “Just let us in, and we’ll be gone before you
    know it. We’ll go to our mother’s house.”

    We locked eyes.

    To my horror, I realized my hand had strayed toward the door lock (which was
    engaged) and was in the process of opening it. I pulled it away, probably a
    bit too violently. But it did force me to look away from the children.

    I turned back. “Er … Um …,” I offered weakly and then my mind snapped
    into sharp focus.

    For the first time, I noticed their eyes.

    They were coal black. No pupil. No iris. Just two staring orbs reflecting
    the red and white light of the marquee.

    At that point, I know my expression betrayed me. The silent one had a look
    of horror on his face in a combination that seemed to indicate: A) The
    impossible had just happened and B) “We’ve been found out!”

    The spokesman, on the other hand, wore a mask of anger. His eyes glittered
    brightly in the half-light.

    “Cmon, mister,” he said. “We won’t hurt you. You have to LET US IN. We don’t
    have a gun …”

    That last statement scared the living hell out of me, because at that point
    by his tone he was plainly saying, “We don’t NEED a gun.”

    He noticed my hand shooting down toward the gear shift. The spokesman’s
    final words contained an anger that was complete and whole, and yet
    contained in some respects a tone of panic:

    “WE CAN’T COME IN UNLESSYOUTELL US IT’S OKAY. LET… US …. IN!”

    I ripped the car into reverse (thank goodness no one was coming up behind
    me) and tore out of the parking lot. I noticed the boys in my peripheral
    vision, and I stole a quick glance back.

    They were gone. The sidewalk by the theater was deserted.

    I drove home in a heightened state of panic. Had anyone attempted to stop
    me, I would have run on through and faced the consequences later.

    I bolted into my house, scanning all around -- including the sky.

    What did I see? Maybe nothing more than some kids looking for a ride.

    And some really funky contacts. Yeah, right.

    A friend suggested they were vampires, what with the old “let us in” bit and
    my compelled response to open the door. That and the “we’ll go see our
    mother” thing.

    I’m still not sure what they were, but here’s an epilogue I find chilling:

    I talk about Chad a lot. He’s still my best friend, my best ghost-hunting
    companion and an all-around cool guy. He recently moved to Amarillo, but at
    the time this happened was still living in San Angelo of Ram Page fame.

    I called him and talked to him briefly. He had two female friends with him
    at the time, both professing some type of psychic ability.

    I started telling him the story, leaving out the part about the black eyes
    for the kicker. One of the women (we were on a speakerphone) stopped me.

    “These children had black eyes, right?” she asked. “I mean, all-black eyes?”

    “Er … Yes.” I said. I was a bit taken aback.

    “Hmmm,” she said. “One night last week, I had a dream about children with
    black eyes. They were outside my house, wanting to be let in, but there was
    something wrong with them. It took me a while to realize it was the eyes.”

    I hadn’t even gotten as far as them wanting to come in.

    “What did you do?” I asked.

    “I kept the doors and windows locked,” she said. “I knew if they came in,
    they would kill me.”

    She paused.

    “And they would have killed you, too, if you had let them into your car.”

    So, from this extra-long post, we have three unanswered questions:

    A) What did I see?

    B) What would have happened if I opened my car door?

    C) Why does Chad always get the cool psychic chicks? ;)


    On November 14th, 1998, Bethel came back to the mailing list to add IRC chat logs with a friend of his reporting a similar encounter with two boys and a girl in Portland, Oregon that year Three years later, on June 14th, 2001, an user by the handle Harvestwind replied to the post by sharing another similar story happening in Portland in 2000.

    Spread

    The mailing list, while archived, remained quite scarcely shared online for some time. On April 22nd, 2004, a thread was launched in the discussion board of Democratic Underground[2] linking to a now defunct story webpage titled “Evil kids” on the Ghosts.org website, in which Bethel reposted his initial story. On October 23rd, 2004, the link was posted to a thread in the Paranormal Soup forums[3], leading to about 29 pages of comments and it was again posted to the Snopes forum on November 12th, 2005, discussing the validity of Bethel’s testimony.
    Also in November 2004, another story, from an alleged 47-year-old woman by the handle Tee was posted to the Paranormal section of About.com[4].
    In 2008, alternative news site Rensee.com writer Ted Twietmeyer wrote a piece compiling several sightings of black-eyed beings of different ages and genders[5].
    Eventually, more stories were brought from various parts of the US, which were shared by paranormal enthiusiasts and ghost bloggers[6].
    In early 2013, MSN show "Weekly Strange run a short documentary on the phenomenon (shown below).


    Weekly Strange – Haunting black-eyed kids from Christine Umayam on Vimeo.

    In May 2013, an entire sub-reddit was created to collect first-hand accounts from people alledgely surviving encounters with black-eyed kids[11]
    In 2014, a entire website dedicated to the phenomenon and reports of sightings was created[7].

    As a Creepypasta

    On August 6th, 2008; Bethel’s story was reposted to the Creepypasta compiler Creepypasta.com website, where it received a 7,9/10 rating based on more than 1 000 reviews[8].
    On April 21st 2011, an original story about Black-Eyed people was posted to the Creepypasta wikia site[9]. An alleged sighting in Kansas was also posted the day after[10].

    Indie Films

    In 2011, amateur filmaker Matt Matzen directed a 15-minute-long film entitled The Black-Eyed Children (trailer shown below).

    In 2012, a full feature film, titled Sunshine Girl and the Hunt for Black Eyed Kids was directed by Nicholas J. Hagen (trailer shown below). The film premiered at Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver, Canada, on December 20th, 2012.

    About

    Donald Trump’s “Bing Bong” Speech is a nonsensical phrase uttered by the American businessman and Republican presidential candidate to mockingly describe how political lobbying works during a keynote speech he delivered at the Republican Party’s “Lincoln Day” event in Birch Run, Michigan. Upon entering online circulation in August 2015, the soundbite of Trump saying the words “bing bong” became a popular audio material for parodies and remixes on Vine and YouTube.

    Origin

    On August 11th, 2015, Donald Trump delivered the keynote speech at the Republican Party’s Lincoln Day event held in Birch Run, Michigan. During his hour-long speech, Trump openly criticized his then-rival GOP candidate Jeb Bush and opponent Hillary Clinton for their reliance on lobbyists and special interest groups to fund their campaigns, even resorting to hand gestures to mimic the movements of a robotic puppeteer (shown below).



    “Jeb Bush or Hillary, or one of these politicians, all controlled by lobbyists and special interests--and donors, people like me from previous months--total control. Bing bing, bong bong bong, bing bing. You know what that is, right?”

    Spread

    Donald Trump’s nonsensical rhetoric was subsequently highlighted by virtually all major U.S. news outlets and political journalists who were covering the event, with CNN Politics[10] uploading an isolated video clip of the soundbite to its official Vine channel that same day. Within the next 72 hours, the Vine clip became an instant hit as it began making the rounds on news sites and in the blogosphere, including Gawker, Death & Taxes and SomeECards.



    On August 13th, 2015, YouTube remix artist Jonathan Mann uploaded an audio-spliced and autotuned mashup music video sampling Donald Trump’s “bing bing, bong bong” soundbite in combination with the Crazy Frog Brothers video (shown below).



    While many of the musical remixes of Trump’s “bing bong” speech began to surface online as early as in October 2015, the media coverage of the remix phenomenon on Vine and YouTube didn’t occur until early March 2016, when BuzzFeed ran a compilation of some of the most notable instances in an article titled “19 Donald Trump Vines That Prove He Might Secretly Be A Musical Genius.”[7]

  • About

    Girther Movement is a satirical political movement calling into question the size of 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s penis. The name is a parody of the “Birther Movement”, which claims that United States President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and is therefore ineligible for presidency.

    Origin

    On February 26th, 2016, rival presidential candidate Marco Rubio attacked Donald Trump at a political rally in Houston, Texas, where he mocked the size of Trump’s hands and insinuated that they were a sign of having a small penis (shown below, left). On March 3rd, 2016, Trump addressed the insults during a Republican presidential debate held in Detroit, Michigan, where he claimed that his hands were not small and assured viewers there was “no problem” with the size of his penis (shown below, right).



    “He referred to my hands, ‘if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”

    That evening, Twitter user Josh Greenman[1] tweeted “produce the schlong form girth certificate,” in reference to Birther Movement demands for Obama’s long form birth certificate (shown below). Within four days, the tweet gained over 2,400 likes and 1,400 retweets.



    Spread

    Also on March 3rd, 2016, other Twitter users began demanding Trump expose his penis along with the hashtag “#Girthers” (shown below).[2][3][8]



    On March 4th, 2016, Hustler CEO Larry Flynt released an open letter to Donald Trump, which called for Trump to expose his penis to “a team of doctors” to determine his penis size (shown below). In the coming days, several news sites published article about the “#Girther” tweets, including The Daily Dot,[4] The Interrobang,[5] Esquire[6] and UpRoxx.[7]

    Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects a computer and blocks access to the machine’s system files, demanding a payment from the owner before the restriction is removed.

    Origin

    In 1989, London, England resident Dr. Joseph Popp authored a trojan horse virus known as the Aids Info Disk, which prevented users from accessing certain directories and encrypted the C: drive, demanding a payment to a post office in Panama to unlock the files. Popp was subsequently arrested by British authorities and charged with eleven counts of blackmail.

    In September 2005, the tech news blog NetworkWorld[4] published an article describing ransomware as the “latest security worry.” Several ransomware programs surface online over the next year, including the GPCode trojan horse virus which was circumvented by international software security group Kaspersky Lab.[5] Up until June 2008, several iterations of the malware resurfaced online. In 2010, 10 people were arrested in Russia that were implicated in creating the WinLock ransomware trojan. The following year, a malware program mimicking a Windows Product Activation notification began circulating online, which tricked victims into calling a number to collect international long distance charges. In 2012, the ransomware trojan Reveton, based on the Citadel trojan virus, began infecting a wide distribution of computers, displaying a false messaging informing the user they had been flagged for pirating software or downloading child pornography (shown below).

In September, the CryptoWall and CryptoLocker trojans began spreading in emails fraudulently claiming to be Australia Post delivery notices. On September 4th, 2015, Redditor puckpou submitted a post about ransomware to the /r/YouShouldKnow[2] subreddit, where it garnered upwards of 1,200 votes (90% upvoted) and 170 comments prior to being archived. On September 21st, the radio show and podcast Radiolab published an episode titled “Darkode,” which featured a story about a Russian woman who paid off ransomware attackers using bitcoin. On January 26th, 2016, the anti-malware software company Malwarebytes introduced an anti-ransomware beta. In March, the KeRanger ransomware began infecting Mac computers through the Transmission BitTorrent client.[7]

    “Little Marco” is a derogatory nickname given to Marco Rubio by Donald Trump during the 2016 Republican Presidential Primary. The nickname gained notoriety after Trump used it in the 11th GOP debate, followed by an incident where Rubio sat in a giant chair.

    Origin

    Trump had repeatedly referred Rubio’s size at rallies throughout his campaign.[1] However, at the 11th GOP Debate in Detroit, Michigan on March 3th, 2016, Rubio and Trump began arguing over their views on employment, and Trump referred to Rubio as “This Little Guy” (1:40 in the below video). Rubio responded to the insult (minute 4:00 below), and they continue to argue; at the end of his response, the moderator proposes to ask another policy question. Rubio responds “let’s see if he answers it!” to which Trump says, “Don’t worry little Marco, I will,” (4:48 below).



    h2. Spread

    After the debate, #LittleMarco immediately took off as a hashtag[2]. Reporters like Sabrina Siddiqui tweeted about the nickname, and the online publication Slate claimed that American had just been “introduced” to “Little Marco.” The hashtag received a substantial boost from Trump himself, who used it when he tweeted on March 5th that he believed that Fox News was favoring Rubio.



    On March 4th, 2016, redditor rareunlimited submitted a photo of Marco Rubio sitting in a giant chair to the /r/PsBattle subreddit, where it gained 3,482 points (91% upvoted) and 216 responses.



    The photo was originally taken by Elizabeth Frantz and published by the Concord Monitor when Rubio visited a furniture store in New Hampshire in August, 2015. The photoshops began to circulate through Twitter, Imgur, and elsewhere, eventually gaining attention from blogs like Gizmodo.
