  • 04/23/16--09:50: Brain Power (Twitch)
  • About

    ‘Brain power’ is a recent form of chat spam that has spread rapidly over the online streaming service: “Twitch.tv”[1]. Although the song is from 2014, it was only picked up through it’s use in the popular rthym-game “Osu” [2].

    Origin

    The song itself seems to have originated from Soundcloud user “Noma2nd”[3], who featured the vocals towards the end of a ten minute dubstep mix. It’s uncertain which twitch live-streamer first played the Osu level live on their stream, but the most popular youtube recording of the spam was uploaded by user “ReeseWasHere” [4] on 26th November 2015. The video was a third-party recording of twitch user “Shigetora” [5] playing the level. The video currently has 143,000 views (as of 23rd April 2016). The widespread audience soon took hold of the meme, and it began to spread.

    Spread

    Quickly after it was made popular by well-known Twitch Osu streamers, the the map in question [6] exploded, achieving over 1,000 favourites from users. Brain Power was by no means limited to Osu! streams, however. The song has featured in playlists in a variety of streamers, even reaching games with smaller audiences such as “Civilization V” [7]. Brain power is still going strong, and continues to spread.

  • 04/24/16--11:58: "Congratulations, You Won!"
  • About

    “Congratulations! You Won!” ads are ads that appear on various websites. Ads usually contain a message that the user has won a prize and by clicking the ad box, you will receive your prize. The ads would link to a malicious website that gives the user some form of malware and/or adware virus. These ads have been found on multiple occasions by many Internet users, and thus has sort of a following behind it with many parodies spawned from it.

    Origin

    The exact origins of these malicious ads aren’t known. The earliest known “claim prizes” ads circulating around the early 2000s when most home users had the internet either by 56K modems or early DSL connections. The content of these ads are much of the same as you would see today, usually consisting of a Windows XP border with the user being an annual visitor (ie: YOUARETHE 999,999TH VISITOR TO THISSITE!!!) Some ads had sound while others had flashing text and borders; sometimes both. Here is an example:



    Spread

    As these ads became more and more common, users were found on multiple PC help sites asking how to remove the adware caused by one of these ads. Many people began to experience more ads popping up randomly during visits to even harmless sites due to the malware downloaded. This caused these attacks to become even more common. Most of these ads were randomly generated through Congratulations-you-won.claimprizenow.com

    On YouTube, there are some parodies of a particular adware pop up (shown in the picture above). A male voiceover saying “Congratulations, You Won!” on a repeated loop. This one by far is the most popular and has been used in these parody videos.

    The initial spread of these parodies started circulating around 2013-2014 and have since been parodied more and more.

  • 04/25/16--08:28: Beyoncé's "Lemonade"
  • About

    Beyoncé’s “Lemonade is the sixth studio album and the second “visual album” released by American singer and songwriter Beyoncé. Upon its premiere as an hour-long special on HBO in late April 2016, the album instantly earned critical acclaim for its innovative methods of storytelling and high production value, as well as fan speculations about its autobiographical allusions to the marriage between the artist and her husband, Jay-Z, in a similar vein to the reception of “Drunk In Love” from her first self-titled visual album.

    Origin

    On April 16th, 2016, Beyoncé announced the upcoming release of Lemonade with a preview video and trailer on her official YouTube page, although the accompanying description didn’t reveal much about the nature of the project, aside from its scheduled premiere date and time on HBO. The preview video received over 3 million views in the week between its release and the premiere of Lemonade on April 23rd.



    In anticipation of the event, which also coincided with the season premiere of Game of Thrones, HBO announced that its internet streaming app, HBO Go, would allow people to sign up for a free 30-day trial. The music from the visual album was later released as a stream on Tidal, for which people could also sign up for a trial.[1] Originally, the music was not going to be released anywhere else, but due to popular demand, Beyoncé agreed to release it on iTunes and Amazon for download at midnight on Sunday, April 24th.[2]

    Spread

    HBO and Tidal don’t release statistics for viewership, but soon after the airing Lemonade was a trending topic on Facebook[3] and Twitter.[4] Due to the album’s exclusive availability, Tidal immediately rose to be the third most popular free app in the iTunes App store.[5] The album featured many cameos from other artists and notable people, including Serena Williams, Zendaya, and Amandla Stenberg; in addition, the album’s credits were more than 3,000 words long.[6]

    Jay-Z’s Infidelity and Rachel Roy

    Much of the immediate discussion surrounding Lemonade featured its content. In the lyrics of the songs and in spoken word songs, much reference is made to Beyoncé’s personal relationship to the rapper Jay-Z, to whom she is married. The lyrics speak frankly about infidelity on Jay-Z’s part, at one point indicating that he had cheated on her with a “Becky with the good hair,” which is a derogatory way of referring to a basic white woman.[10] Many who follow Beyoncé’s personal life believed she was referring to the fashion designer Rachel Roy, who has had a close relationship with her husband since before they were married, and several hours after the release Roy posted a selfie to Instagram in which she alluded to the lyric. Beyoncé fans soon began posting the emojis for bees and lemons as comments on Roy’s Instagram, prompting her to make the account private. She later posted a tweet that read “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”[7]



    Left: Fan reaction to Beyoncé’s lyrics; Right: Rachel Roy’s now-deleted Instagram post.

    In a related situation, many Beyoncé fans also mistakenly posted bees and lemons to the television chef and talkshow host Rachel Ray’s account because of the similarities in their names.[8]

    Social Justice and Equality

    One of the overarching themes of the album is social justice as viewed through the lens of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Several scenes in the film speak to these themes, most notably a scene in which the mothers of several black men and children who were killed by police, including the mothers of Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin are seen holding photographs of their sons. Much of the online reaction was devoted to these moments in the film.[9]

  • 04/25/16--10:16: Put Some Respeck on My Name
  • About

    “Put Some Respeck on My Name” is a memorable quote uttered by Louisiana rapper and hip hop entrepreneur Birdman during his confrontational guest appearance on the radio show The Breakfast Club in late April 2016. Following the airing of the interview, many listeners mocked the rapper’s unique, southern, pronunciation of the word “respect” as “respeck.”

    Origin

    On April 22nd, 2016, Birdman, the co-founder of Cash Money Records and one half of the hip hop duo Big Tymers, made a guest appearance on New York City’s syndicated urban contemporary radio show The Breakfast Club. During the live interview, Birdman went on a verbal tirade against the show’s hosts, DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne, angrily demanding them to “stop playing with [his] fucking name” and “put some respect on [his] name”, proceeding to leave the building. (shown below).



    While Birdman refused to participate in the interview or elaborate on the nature of his complaints, the co-hosts speculated that his on-air meltdown may have been a reaction to several jokes made by Rick Ross and Trick Daddy at the expense of his name during an interview on their show in 2015, as well as their roasting of the hip hop mogul for failing to pay a number of artists on his record label, including Lil Wayne.

    Spread

    Later that day, TMZ[1] reported that Birdman apologized to DJ Envy following the incident. Meanwhile, Instagram user @mrs_roblane uploaded an edited clip of the interview, featuring Crying Michael Jordan superimposed over Birdman’s face (shown below). In the next three days, the video garnered upwards of 7,200 likes and 1,400 comments.




    Also on April 22nd, YouTuber The Black Hokage posted a video titled “Put Some Respeck on It,” featuring footage from the game Call of Duty interspersed with various jokes using a clip of Birdman saying “respect” (shown below, left). Within 72 hours, the video gained over 320,000 views and 1,300 comments. The following day, YouTuber Filnobep uploaded an animated parody of the Birdman interview (shown below, right).



    On April 24th, SoundCloud user DJ Suede the remix god posted a “trap”: remix using the audio from Birdman’s interview on "The Breakfast Club’ (shown below). Within 24 hours, the song gathered more than 4,100 plays and 350 likes.



    The same day, former coach of the Golden State Warriors Mark Jackson referenced the Birdman quote while analyzing a basketball game between the Warriors and the Rockets (shown below). In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the online reaction to the interview, including The Source,[2] Vulture,[3] Complex[4] and HipHopDX.[5]

  • [Work in Progress]

    About

    The Iron Sheik is an Iranian-American retired professional wrestler best known for his work in WWE (then WWF) and for his bizarre statements in interviews and on social media such as Twitter.[1]

    Origin

    The Sheik’s wrestling career lasted from 1972 – 2010, following his training at the hands of old-time wrestling legends Verne Gagne and Billy Robinson. Wikipedia says of the Sheik’s career[2]:

    Coming off the Iranian hostage crisis, The Iron Sheik, an Iranian citizen who praised his home country and bashed the USA is considered to be one of the greatest heels of all time. His villainous character peaked during the 1980s WWF wrestling boom and his rivalry with Hulk Hogan turned Hogan into one of the greatest television heroes of the decade.

    Spread

    The Iron Sheik is infamous for his “shoot” (out-of-character) interviews, in which he seems to remain in character nonetheless; his language consists primarily of complaining about certain wrestlers having shown him disrespect. Known for his unorthodox lexicon and turns of phrase, a couple of statements from his interviews have become long-time memetic expressions within wrestling fandom (see Related Memes below).

    Sheik is highly active on Twitter (link above) and maintains his character online, often retweeting fans’ references to his memetic catchphrases from the interviews as described hereafter. In an article for Heavy.com[6], journalist Elton Jones writes about how:

    One Hall of Fame wrestler with too much free time and way too much to say is none other than The Iron Sheik. He hates Chris Brown, he hates the Olympics for getting rid of wrestling and he hates…everything else.

    Jones then proceeded to showcase some of Sheik’s most memorable tweets.

    FACK

    Fucking Bullshit, often misspelt as simply FACK to represent Sheik’s accent, is a memetic statement from a shoot interview with the Sheik conducted by RFVideos in 2007. An excerpt was uploaded to their YouTube channel which has received over 700,000 views. The comments on the video can be seen full of shitposts which mutate the statement in memetic fashion[3]:


    A soundbite of the Iron Sheik emphatically saying “FACK” was used to close Botchamania[4] episodes for several years is now continually used in the various mock-opening credits in the series along with other wrestling-related memes, most notably in the fan opening made by Tri.Moon on YouTube:


    This video acheived popularity and notoriety among Botchamaniacs, and Botchamania producer Maffew currently uses it for the series’ openings.[4]

    Break His Back, Make Him Humble


    This statement is taken from a 2006 shoot interview with MWF/Boston Wrestling, in which the Iron Sheik talks about how he will “break his back, make him humble, then fuck his ass”(1:53) referring to laying his signature submission move, the Camel Clutch, on rival wrestler Brian Blair. The statement was humorous to the viewers, especially concerning Sheik’s hypocritical homophobia combined with his threats to sodomise Blair.

    Iron Sheik expressions have occasionally been used in image macros featuring him.

  • 04/25/16--15:21: Boaty McBoatface
  • About

    RRS Boaty McBoatface is a proposed name for the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)‘s state-of-the-art polar research vessel currently under construction for the British Antarctic Survey, which is scheduled to begin in 2019. Upon the submission of the entry by British radio presenter James Hand to NERC’s “Name Our Ship” online contest in March 2016, the irreverent proposal quickly drew a massive backing on the social media and ultimately emerged as the people’s choice for the name of the vessel, as well as inspiring a variety of similar-sounding names.

    Origin

    On March 17th, 2016, the British scientific research agency NERC launched an online crowdsourced contest to name its newly commissioned 129-meter long polar research vessel--the largest and most advanced British royal research vessel to date. Shortly after the launch of the Internet poll, the website was promptly raided by pranksters suggesting a variety of goofy names, most notably RRS Boaty McBoatface as suggested by former BBC presenter James Hand.



    Precursors

    Prior to the sensational rise of “Boaty McBoatface” and the subsequent trend that ensued, there have been several precedents of comparable nature, including “Mister Splashy Pants” for the unnamed whale tracked by Greenpeace in 2007 (shown below, left) and “Hooty McOwlface” for an owl sponsored through the “Adopt-A-Bird” program in 2012 (shown below, right).



    Spread

    On March 22nd, 2016, a few days after the NERC’s ship-naming contest went viral, The Daily Telegraph journalist Harry Wallop tweeted a photograph of an LED-display sign reading “Trainy McTrainface” on the side of a British Rail South West train, which garnered more than 1,235 likes and 1,449 retweets.




    That same day, the United States Air Force (USAF) launched an online contest to field suggestions for the proposed name of the B-21 bomber aircraft from the members of the USAF, which led to a number of irreverent suggestions like “Bomby McBombface” and “Stealthy McHidden.”



    On March 28th, The board of Austin Independent School District (AISD) in Texas passed a motion to rename one of its schools, Robert E. Lee Elementary School, once named in homage to the general of the Confederate States of America and now questioned in the aftermath of the Charleston church shooting and the subsequent debate on the Confederate flag. During the nomination process, which began on March 29th and ended on April 15th, a number of goofy-sounding suggestions likely influenced by Boaty McBoatface were submitted, the highlights of which were eventually reported on by Fox 7 (shown below), including Schoolie McSchoolface.



    On April 15th, Australian horse trainer Bjorn Baker of Sydney’s Warwick Farm racecourse named his newly acquired two-year-old gelding “Horsey McHorseface” as a humorous nod to Boaty McBoatface.

  • 04/25/16--16:02: Crabs For My Sensei
  • Crabs For My Sensei is a meme that originated from the 5th OVA of One Punch Man airing in English Subtitles in April 2016.

    During the train ride to City Z, Genos and Fubuki sit in adjacent seats, the seat across from Fubuki being boxes of live crabs for Genos to take home for dinner with Saitama. It is known that Genos acts a lot like a housewife to Saitama, so going out and getting groceries is a big deal for him.

    After silence, Fubuki looks at the boxes of crabs rumbling in the seat. This is when, without hesitation or a change in his serious expression, Genos tells her-
    “They’re crabs. Crabs for my sensei.”
    Fubuki fails to respond to Genos’ seriousness about how urgent these crabs are for his sensei.
    The meme originated from Tumblr, meme posts getting as high as 5,000+ notes.

    In mid April 2016, the images were tweeted by user @lmaoliawyd,[6] who subsequently deleted the tweet. On April 18th, 2016, Twitter users @girlposts[2] and @meanplastic tweeted the images, garnering upwards of 25,900 and 7,300 likes respectively over the next week. The following day, blogger Shannon Gurnee published an article titled “The Day My Picture Went Viral…Without My Permission,” which criticized the meme for using her picture instead of stock photos.[3]



    Meanwhile, BuzzFeed[1] published an article about the image series, which included a statement from blogger Shannon A. White noting that she was upset with the image being used without her permission.

    “I am a blogger, a Presbyterian Pastor currently leading a large congregation, an author of books, a national speaker, and a former TV News reporter. I have one child -- not 50. While many young girls and women may say, ‘wow I want to be her,’ not one of the responses has been to want to be Jillian. Why is that? The tongue-in-cheek meme of a woman having 50 children, and most certainly needing and deserving a nap. If that’s the case, should be honored. Women who have multiple children should not be made fun of as something women do not want to aspire to.”

    Also on April 19th, BuzzFeed[5] posted an online quiz to determine “Which of These Stereotypically Suburban Moms Are You?” On April 21st, The Daily Mail[7] published an article about the images. On April 22nd, BuzzFeed[4] published a follow-up article titled “The Story Behind The Meme That Invited Us All To Mock Moms,” which criticized the meme for being disrespectful to mothers. That day, Cheezburger[8] posted the original image.
