  • 08/15/16--10:16: Smiling Usain Bolt
  • About

    Smiling Usain Bolt is a photoshop meme and reaction image based on a photograph of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt grinning at a camera while leading the 100-meter dash race at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

    Origin

    On August 14th, 2016, Usain Bolt won the gold medal in the men’s 100-meters sprint finals with a time of 9.81 seconds, becoming the first track athlete in Olympic history to win three consecutive gold medals in a single discipline. Bolt’s performance at the event was particularly noteworthy for beating his rival and American sprinter Justin Gatlin with an impressive upsurge in the last 40 meters of the dash. As Bolt crossed the finish line, Getty photographer Cameron Spencer photographed the athlete smiling at the camera (shown below).



    That day, Twitter user @suss2hyphens[1] tweeted the photograph, describing it as “the opposite” of the Crying Michael Jordan meme. Within 24 hours, the tweet gained over 6,400 likes and 5,100 retweets.



    Spread

    Several minutes later, Twitter user @russbengston[2] reposted the photo with a “bae come over” joke (shown below, left). That same evening, Twitter user @a7xweeman[4] tweeted the picture along with a reference to the “*Record scratch* *Freeze frame*“ movie cliché. Over the next day, the tweet received upwards of 47,000 likes and 35,600 retweets.



    Also on August 14th, Twitter user @sporker_[3] posted a photoshopped version of the image showing Bolt running from “deadlines,” “sleep” and “responsibilities,” garnering more than 19,000 retweets and 15,000 likes in 24 hours(shown below).



    In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the photoshop meme, including The Observer,[5] The Daily Dot,[6] The Huffington Post,[7] The Independent[8] and The Daily Mail.[9]

  • 08/15/16--10:19: Guccifer 2.0
  • About

    Guccifer 2.0, not to be confused with the convicted Romanian hacker Guccifer, is a mysterious hacker of unknown identity who gained online notoriety in June 2016 after claiming responsibility for breaching the servers of at least two major committees within the United States Democratic Party, namely the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), that resulted in the massive leak of private e-mails and internal memos, as well as personal contact information of Democratic officials and lawmakers.

    Online History

    The “Donald Trump Report”

    On June 15th, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 claimed responsibility for breaching the servers of the Democratic National Committee and released a document titled “Donald Trump Report,” a 237-page summary of opposition research against the Republican presidential candidate, via Gawker and The Smoking Gun, while refuting the cybersecurity experts’ conjecture that the cyberattack was most likely carried out by hackers affiliated with the Russian government.

    Democratic National Committee Email Leak

    On July 22nd, 2016, Wikileaks and The Hill published a collection of nearly 20,000 internal e-mails hosted on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), as well as unofficial correspondences, that were exchanged among key staff members and members of the press between January 2015 and May 2016. Shortly after the release of the documents, Guccifer 2.0 issued a statement claiming responsibility for the leak, once again refuting the allegations of Russian involvement from several Democratic party officials.

    Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Hack

    On August 12th, 2016, Guccifer 2.0 released a new batch of sensitive account information and contact information of congressional members that he had allegedly acquired by hacking into the servers of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in late July.

    “Flat Is Justice” is a catchphrase used by otakus and anime fans in order to express appreciation for flat chested female characters, and it’s often associated to lolicon. The catchphrase has often been paired with the term “Delicious Flat Chest”, used to express preference for small breasts rather than big busts.

    Origin

    It’s believed that the catchphrase was inspired by a dialogue line from the Japanese visual novel Shuffle!, first released on January 30th, 2004, in which the character Mayumi Thyme proclaims that “a flat chest is a status symbol” in reference to her own bust.[1] The dialogue was later mentioned in the episode fourth of the 2007 anime series Lucky Star by the main character Konata Izumi, spreading the quote through the anime community (shown below, left). In June 2011, the episode eleven of the anime series Steins;Gate was released, which included a scene where the character Mayuri Shiina tries to cheer up Luka Urushibara over her flast chest, being translated as “flat is justice” in one of the fansubs (shown below, right).

    Donald Trump’s NAMBLA Donation Hoax refers to the false rumor that the 2016 Republican presidential candidate refused to disclose his tax returns because he did not want to reveal the records of charitable donations he had allegedly made to the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), a pedophile and pedrasty advocacy organization. Upon the launch of the hoax on Reddit in July 2016, it quickly proliferated across social media platforms as a way to mock Trump’s habitual use of the phrase “many people are saying” when citing unfounded claims and far-fetched conjectures in his campaign speeches.

    Origin

    On July 29th, 2016, Redditor RIPrince submitted an article titled “Trump Suggests Nothing Will Prompt Him to Release Tax Returns” to the /r/politics[2] subreddit. In the comments section, another Redditor speculated that Trump was keeping his tax return private to prevent the discovery that he donated to NAMBLA (shown below). The comment has since been deleted.

    “But why doesn’t Trump want to release his [tax returns]? Could it be because he donated a sizable amount of money to NAMBLA and he wants to cover it up? I’m not saying Trump donated money to NAMBLA, but people are saying that. It’s something I’ve heard, but I don’t believe Donald Trump donated several million dollars to NAMBLA over the last several years. Still, if he did that would be a great reason to not release his tax returns. But look, I’m not here to say whether or not Donald Trump donated millions to NAMBLA, I’m just here to let you know that every candidate has released his tax returns over the last 40 years, so there has to be a reason he doesn’t, and several very smart people are saying he contributed millions of dollars to NAMBLA.”

    Spread

    In August 2016, the Reddit bot account AutoModerator began responding to all comments mentioning the keywords “tax return” in the /r/EnoughTrumpSpam[1] subreddit with a message claiming the presidential candidate would not release his tax returns because he “donated to NAMBLA” (shown below).



    “Speaking of tax returns, did you hear Donald Trump is refusing to release them because Donald Trump has donated to NAMBLA? That’s what all the best sources, the most tremendous sources are saying, and if they’re all saying that Donald Trump donated to NAMBLA, well, I can see why Donald Trump would want to cover up his donations to NAMBLA. I’m not claiming that Donald Trump donates to NAMBLA, but that’s what these excellent sources are alleging, that Donald Trump does indeed donate to NAMBLA.”

    On August 2nd, Redditor dannylanduf submitted a post titled “<-----Amount Trump has donated to NAMBLA” to /r/EnoughTrumpSpam.[3] Within two weeks, the post gained over 9,600 votes (67% upvoted) and 300 comments. On August 3rd, Redditor trevize1138 posted a screenshot of an argument with a Trump supporter over the NAMBLA accusations to /r/EnoughTrumpSpam.[1] On August 4th, a fake Fox News website was launched on Clonezone.link[6] featuring a satirical article titled “NAMBLA neither confirms nor denies Trump’s donation allegations” (shown below).



    On August 9th, NY Mag[7] published an article titled “Many People Are Saying Donald Trump Gives Money to Pedophiles, According to a Very Reputable Robot.” The same day, comedian Patton Oswalt tweeted to Fox News television host Sean Hannity about the “disgusting Trump/NAMBLA nonsense” (shown below).[5]

    Unusual Olympic Athlete Names refers to the myriad athletes who appear at the Olympics and have names whose pronunciations sound like English puns.

    Origin

    While the advent of the internet allowed people to share funny Olympic athlete names with each other, it wasn’t until 2008, when NBC began to stream the Olympics online[2] and thus allow online viewers to screencap the coverage and save pictures of athletes with unusual names, that the phenomenon of “Unusual Olympic Athlete Names” began to start spreading. Until then, blogs cataloguing funny names in sports had included Olympians alongside American sports players, such as when the blog List of the Day[1] published an article called “The Ten Dirtiest Names in Sports,” which included Olympic basketball player Gregor Fucka and Olympic swimmer Misty Hyman.



    Spread

    The cataloguing of unusual Olympic names began in earnest during the 2012 Olympics in London, as dozens of sites including Funny or Die,[3] TheBertShow,[4] TotalProSports,[5] Buzzfeed,[6] and more published roundups of strange or humorous Olympian names, like Kim Yoo Suk (pole vault), Dong Dong (trampoline), Destinee Hooker (volleyball), etc.



    The trend returned for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, as Buzzfeed[7] and TotalProSports[8] again published lists of unusual names. Twitter user @JimboLoony[9] lampooned the trend by photoshopping Olympic ski jumper Andreas Wank’s name to read “Cunty Spunkfuckshitpiss.” Some users believed him, causing the Daily Dot[10] to publish an article assuring readers that there was no athlete named Cunty Spunkfuckshitpiss.



    The trend has grown less popular for the 2016 Summer Olympics, with the most high-profile coverage coming from The Sun.[11] However, Dong Dong returned with an image macro where his name is used as the punchline of a Law and Order joke.

  • Flater created his channel back in April 2012, he use to make videos such as “Call Of Duty” montages and edit them himself but it didn’t bring much attention to his channel back in them days so I think he quit YouTube and then came back in December 2014. He started uploading videos claiming that he is the famous ‘hacking’ group “Anonymous”. I think he just made them to get on Keemstar’s show DramaAlert and he did.

    Throughout the year 2015 and 2016 he has been making videos such as montage parodies ‘MLG’ and has been growing fast since then, he had like 1k subs or something back in early 2015 but now in August 2016 he has almost 82,000 subscribers on his channel.

    Flater has been getting quite popular with making comedy videos of keemstar and transforming them with songs such as ‘Thomas The Tank Engine’ #KeemstarTheTankEngine. You can watch that video here:

    Then he continues to make videos of Keemstar because he knows his fans have been liking his Keemstar content and gets a lot of attention to the videos. I will link a few more here:

    I think these videos are well thought of and very creative and Flater has been making memes come more popular.

    I will keep updating this submission with what Flater has made and the memes he has made become popular with.
