  • 12/22/16--20:43: Hiker David

  • About

    Hiker David is a Hiker trainer in Pokemon Sun and Moon. He is found during the third trial of the game on top of Wela Volcano Park on Akala Island. He is caught photobombing your trial and has become a popular photo edit.%

    Background

    During the player’s Trials, they find themselves on Wela Volcano about to do the Fire Trial From Captian Kiawe. During which the player has to pay attention to three Alolan Marowak as they do traditional Alolan Dances and find what is different between there dances.




    While the first dance was simple it did make players think about focusing more on the motions and positions.
    when it got to the second part of the dances, the Marowaks did there dance like normal, but on the compared version of their dance Hiker David pops out of nowhere to photobomb your trial.




    He then fights you with a level 19 Magmar.




    After defeating him he will join in with the Alolan Marowaks on the final dance, another photobombing dance where instead, the totem Pokemon Salazzle pops in the background.




    Spread

    The Photobombing Hiker David spread quickly shortly after the game’s release. He then got an edit cropping away the background to make it an image macro.




    Some of the edits also include Salazzle as well but aren’t as common as Hiker David.

  • 12/23/16--18:37: Thot Patrol
  • About

    Thot Patrol[1] is a meme page that originated on Facebook. They began their page and built it from the bottom up by creating original content parodying various forms of Ghetto Memes themselves, and from time to time, the creators and fans that submit their content would submit their own variations of types of memes with their own twists on them. Their first page was shut down, but they quickly rebuilt by creating a second page and carried it forward since then. There is a Facebook group aswell, also named “Thot Patrol”[2]. It is owned by the same creators of the page, Thot Patrol.

    Origin

    Thot Patrol’s first page was created somewhere in early 2016. As FaceBook shut it down, there is currently no known way of checking. It’s assumed that Thot Patrol’s second page was created on June 24, 2016, as the first profile picture was created then.

    Spread

    Thot Patrol’s content has varied since it restarted, but it stayed true to it’s originality. There have been memes created and published by the page and from other sources back then, featuring usage of Timberland Boots, and New York Snapbacks/Baseball Hats.

    This page, with the content it has produced and posted, could actually be the grandfather (or trendsetter) of Timbs and Deadass, as the page’s reach grew on FaceBook and more memes of theirs got out, so did their concepts and ideas, which led to the creation of the two child memes as stated above.

    About

    The “You know I had to do it to em” meme refers to both the image of LuckyLucianok17 and the phrase.
    The image shows Lucky standing on a sidewalk surrounded by grass lawns, holding his hands in front of him, and wearing a light colored shirt and shorts, complete with boat shoes. It can be used as a base to ridicule the stereotypical white bro, with many people pointing out his sock tan lines, watch, and overall stance and outfit [1].
    It is often used by either distorting the original image or editing a fictional character on top of the original. The phrase itself has begun to be used as a response; alternatively, the image can be used as a response to represent the phrase. Once the image became recognizable, it was remixed with other meme catchphrases, and the caption began to be applied to photos of people or characters standing with a wide stance and holding their hands together in front of them, in a gesture reminiscent of the original image.

    Origin

    On September 2nd, 2014, Twitter user LuckyLuciano17k posted the original photo of himself with the caption “You know I had to do it to em” [1]. It is unclear what he meant by this. He could possibly have been referencing the 2012 song titled “You Know I Had To Do It To Em” by Rickie B [2], or Drake’s lyric “I had to do it to them” from the song Ransom [3]. Lucky went private on Twitter on December 22nd, 2016.

    Spread

    The initial post on Twitter did not become popular until around 2016. It was retweeted and reposted with different captions to Twitter [4].
    The image spread to Tumblr possibly in early 2016, and became edited in various ways, morphing with other memes and formats.
    The image was added as a meme base on Meme Generator on June 17, 2016 [5].

    About

    Increasingly Verbose memes, also known as simplification memes, are an emerging hybrid of typical Verbose/Classy memes and simplification memes. A standard image meme is depicted as the first frame. Successive frames involve the image degrading in quality, either being graphically malformed using an image editor or redrawn in Microsoft Paint, whilst any text in the image becomes unnaturally verbose to the point where it is difficult to understand without the original context of the image. The meme is intended to satirize the original image, which is seen by the community as a ‘bad’ meme.

    Origins

    Increasingly Verbose memes originate from a predecessor known as a ‘simplification’ meme, which has existed back to the late 1960s. Simplification memes involve degrading an image, audio file, or video to the point where it is unintelligible.

    The first appearance of a ‘simplification’ meme was in 1969, where experimental musician Alvin Lucier composed and performed ‘I am Sitting in a Room’. This sound artwork involved Lucier narrating an original text and recording the spoken word on cassette tape. The spoken word is then played and recorded again by another tape recorder. This process was repeated to the point where Lucier’s speaking was unintelligible and underlying frequencies in the room dominated the tape:

    Similar activities would occur in threads on 4chan, where often a .gif image would be compressed over and over and reposted by the ‘OP’ until the content within the gif would become unintelligible.

    Perhaps a more contemporary example is from 2010, where YouTuber canzona performed a project in which he downloaded and reuploaded a video of himself talking onto the videosharing site 1,000 times:

    Due to the aggressive nature of YouTube’s compression feature, canzona’s video is sequentially artifacted and destroyed over time, or ‘simplified’ to an image that is neither intelligible nor distinguishable. Similar experiments using lossy compression in images is known as generation loss, and numerous experiments have been performed online to show the effects of reposting images. These unintended effects were often considered humorous by Internet denizens and satirised the original content.

    Spread

    In 2015, the simplification meme style gained popularity with the new breed of ‘Ironic Memes’ as it chimed in with the current internet issues of reposting and ‘stealing’ image memes, which often involved the memes looking heavily compressed as it is repeatedly screenshotted on multiple devices, similar to that of simplification memes. During this time, Verbose/Classy memes also began to gain popularity. Eventually, meme creators on /r/coaxedintoasnafu decided that the ability to satirise a meme by both simplifying it and making it unnaturally verbose worked well together, and hence the Increasingly verbose meme style was developed.

    One of the earliest Increasingly verbose memes was a parody of the Breath-in, Boi meme, in which Spongebob’s words and depiction is increased in verbosity and degraded in quality respectively with each frame:

    meme

    Mutations

    Since 2015, a number of Increasingly verbose memes have emerged to further satirize the nature of non-ironic memes. Some spin-offs of the meme involve somebody narrating the text within the meme, and the audio quality degrading with each successive displayed frame, further adding to the simplification of the meme.

    A new trend from /r/coaxedintoasnafu involves having the last frame of the storyboard containing an incredibly simplified/malformed image, however instead of containing extremely verbose language replacing the text, the text is instead greatly simplified and is often more direct or sinister in action to the original meme.

    meme

    In the above Donald Trump increasingly verbose meme, it is seen that in the final frame, Trump’s slogan is instead simplified to a short “USA” rather than a verbose paragraph.

  • About

    Princess Leia is a fictional character prominently featured in the Star Wars saga as the princess of the planet Alderaan, who has been portrayed by Carrie Fisher up to the upcoming title Star Wars: Episode VIII slated for release in December 2017. Widely regarded as one of the most iconic characters from the saga, the fictional character has been a long-running subject of fan art and fanfiction on the web.

    Origin

    Princess Leia was introduced in the original Star Wars film in 1977 and portrayed by American actress Carrie Fisher.

    Character History

    In the film, Leia plays an important role in foiling the evil plan of main antagonist Sith Lord Darth Vader and bringing about the destruction of his cataclysmic weapon, the Death Star. In the sequel The Empire Strikes Back (1980), she commands a Rebel base and falls in love with Han Solo. In Return of the Jedi (1983), Leia leads the operation to rescue Han from the crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and is revealed to be Vader’s daughter and the twin sister of Luke Skywalker.

    The prequel film Revenge of the Sith (2005) establishes that the twins’ mother is Senator (and former queen) Padmé Amidala of Naboo, who dies after childbirth. Leia is adopted by Senator Bail and Queen Breha Organa of Alderaan. In The Force Awakens (2015), Leia is the founder and General of the Resistance against the First Order and has a son with Han named Ben, who now goes by the name Kylo Ren.

    Spread

    Based on Google Ngram analysis and news articles, Princess Leia has been a subject of interest in American pop culture for almost as long as since the franchise has existed, particularly her character traits marked by heroism, which has been praised by many film critics, feminist scholars and columnists as “an exemplary personification of female empowerment.”

    The character has been widely featured in fan-made artworks, ranging from fanfiction and parodies to illustrations and cosplay. In addition to tributes, Princess Leia has been referenced or parodied in both pop and internet cultures for several decades, including Fisher’s appearance in the Leia metal bikini on the cover of Rolling Stone’s summer 1983 issue and a painting of Leia featured on the cover of May 1983 issue of TIME magazine announcing Return of the Jedi. In 2008, Leia was selected by Empire magazine as the 89th greatest film character of all time and IGN listed her as their 8th top Star Wars hero. In 2010, UGO Networks listed Leia as one of their best heroes of all time in 2010.

  • 12/13/16--11:50: Russian Hacking Controversy
  • Overview

    Russian Hacking Controversy refers to speculation that the Russian government used cyber attacks to sway the 2016 United States presidential election in favor of Republican candidate Donald Trump, which was supported by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) but disputed by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

    Background

    DC Leaks

    In April 2016, the website DC Leaks was launched, where several hacked emails from the Gmail account of retired United States General Philip Breedlove were published. In August, the internet security company ThreatConnect[7] published a blog post speculating that DC Leaks was a “Russian-backed” influence outlet and connecting the website to the mysterious hacker Guccifer 2.0.

    DNC Leak

    On July 22nd, 2016, Wikileaks[9] published a collection of nearly 20,000 e-mails exchanged among key staff members within the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the governing body of the United States Democratic Party, as well as unofficial correspondences with members of the press, between January 2015 and May 2016. Among other findings, the leaked emails detail how several officials within the DNC, which is supposed to remain neutral during the primary electoral process, had attempted to sabotage Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign in order to secure the victory of Hillary Clinton.

    Developments

    On September 2nd, Bloomberg released an interview with Vladimir Putin, in which he denied that the Russian government was involved in the DNC hack (shown below).[1] That month, The Washington Post[12] reported that several United States intelligence and law enforcement agencies were investigating if the Russian government was attempting to disrupt the presidential election. On September 7th, The Wall Street Journal[8] reported that Guccifer 2.0 was angry that Moscow was receiving credit for his hack.



    CIA and FBI Statements

    On December 9th, The Washington Post[4] reported that the CIA concluded “Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency.” The following day, The Washington Post[11] published a follow-up article reporting that the FBI disagreed with the CIA’s conclusion, arguing that Russia’s intentions were unclear.

    Online Reaction

    On October 28th, the Occupy Democrats Logic Facebook[9] page posted an MS Paint illustration of a Hillary Clinton children’s book cover titled “Everyone I Don’t Like Is a Russian Hacker” (shown below, left). On November 4th, Redditor viralijzad submitted another version of the children’s book image (shown below, right). Within one month, the post gained over 750 votes (77% upvoted) on /r/russia.[6]



    On December 12th, 2016, Redditor dances_with_ibprofen submitted a composite image of Vladimir Putin and William Wilson (a.k.a. CIA) from the 2012 superhero film The Dark Knight Rises to /r/memeeconomy,[3] where it received upwards of 15,300 votes (86% upvoted) and 130 comments within 24 hours. The following day, Redditor crackie_chan posted a photoshopped picture of Putin as the “Man Behind the Curtain” in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, controlling a disembodied Trump head (shown below, right). In four hours, the post received more than 31,400 votes (67% upvoted) and 1,500 comments on /r/funny.[10]
