    On March 7th, 2017, Wikileaks released thousands of documents purportedly containing tools used by the CIA to hack various internet-connected devices.[1] In a press release about the leak, Wikileaks named the first portion of the leak “Year Zero,” and claimed it provides information on the CIA’s “global covert hacking program,” including exploits that compromise the security of iPhone, Android and Windows operating systems, as well as Samsung televisions.[2] Additionally, the press release claimed the CIA had “zero day” exploits that could bypass the encryption of various messaging applications, including WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Wiebo, Confide and Cloackman.



    Meme Warfare Center

    Among the documents included a paper on a proposed “Meme Warfare Center,” described as an organization that would advise on “meme generation” and “transmission” (shown below).



    Umbrage

  • 03/07/17--13:22: kyoro-chan
  • Kyorochan had his own 1999–2000 anime series and a movie based on the anime series released between 2000-2001 in Japan. It was later released on VHS and DVD. The series was released in very limited amounts in DVD format (though there is a rare box-set containing the whole series, which is usually very expensive), and, outside Japan, is found only in Hungary (“Kukucska Kalandjai”), Romania (the original name), Taiwan (“大嘴鳥”), the Czech Republic (“Červánek”), and South Korea (“왕부리 팅코”). In the Anime News Network website it is suggested that there might be an English dub[1] for the Kyorochan anime with Richie Campos as the only voice actor listed.

    The Indian channel Pogo will begin showing Kyorochan from May 31, 2017. It is currently unknown if it will be dubbed in Hindi, Tamil, or English, since the channel has programming in all three languages. It will most likely be a Hindi dub, however.

  • 03/08/17--09:22: Behind The Meme
  • About

    Behind The Meme is a YouTube channel that explains the origins of and offers analysis on trending memes. While the channel has a high follower count, it has been the target of derision in certain meme communities due to its tone, unoriginal content, and the perception that he kills memes after he reviews them by making them accessible to normies.

    Online History

    Behind the Meme’s YouTube channel launched on August 12th, 2016.[1] The name of the person behind the channel is unknown. However, on his channel, he lists a California PO Box. His first video was uploaded on August 13th, explaining Dicks Out For Harambe (shown below).



    As of March 8th, 2017, the channel has accrued over 646,000 subscribers. Some of his most popular episodes have acquired over one million views, including his videos for Cash Me Ousside, The Dab, We Are Number One, and Yee.



    Anthony Fantano Controversy

    On November 12th, 2016, thatistheplan, the meme-explainer channel of Anthony Fantano, released a video on Rickrolling parodying the style of Behind The Meme. Fantano criticizes Behind the Meme’s scripts by reading the entry in broken english. He also says the channel talks down to its audience like its full of 6 year olds and accuses the channel of regurgitating information on Know Your Meme.



    The following day, Behind The Meme responded to Fantano’s video by posting a video where he addressed some of the criticisms Fantano lobbed and got his mom to roast him by calling him a geek.



    Criticism

    Though popular, Behind the Meme is despised in certain meme communities. Often, he is accused of being a normie and cancer in comments on his videos (ex: shown below).[2]



    The channel is particularly loathed on meme-focused subreddits such as /r/dankmemes and /r/MemeEconomy. For example, on March 8th, 2017, an image of a Behind The Meme comments section asking the channel to review Expanding Brain caused a stir in both subreddits. In /r/dankmemes, the screenshot was posted with the title, “Behind the meme, if you’re out there, on Reddit, I’m begging you, don’t do this to us. This meme is only a boy, it has so much to live for” (shown below).[3]



    On /r/MemeEconomy, the subreddit responds to Behind the Meme actions by crying “Sell!” whenever he reviews or is encouraged to review a meme.[4]

    Zenzi

    On February 19th, 2017, an anonymous 4chan user took to /r9k/ to complain about Behind the Meme and ask how 4chan could take it down. In response, another user suggested that in every video, 4chan commenters demand he cover “Zenzi,” a meme that doesn’t exist, and downvote every video in which he doesn’t cover Zenzi, which they thought would result in Behind The Meme getting frustrated and quitting (screenshot shown below). It appears the original thread has been deleted, though a similar thread has been archived.



    Behind The Meme quickly discovered what was going on and thwarted the attempted 4chan raid by creating an explainer video for Zenzi the same day as the raid. The video turned into less of an explainer and more of an extended riff on the elitism of some meme communities. Behind The Meme’s quick and accurate response to Zenzi resulted in the Zenzi raid being deemed a failure.



    Know Your Meme Plagiarism Accusations

    Behind the Meme has been accused in the past for allegedly plagiarizing Know Your Meme. In Anthony Fantano’s parody of Behind the Meme, he sarcastically says “This is the part where I regurgitate information I found on Know Your Meme, but you’re so stupid, you think I researched it.” The channel’s tendency to steal Know Your Meme information has been a noticeable trend for its followers. For example, in his episode for What in Tarnation, he says:[6]

    “What in Tarnation?” is an older saying that is often associated with the Southern states of America.

    The “About” section for the Know Your Meme entry for the meme reads:

    “What in Tarnation?” is a rhetorical question meaning “what in damnation?”, which is often associated with Americans living in the Southern United States expressing incredulous bewilderment.

    Furthermore, as of March 8th, 2017, the channel’s Twitter name is “Ky Memes,” possibly an acronym for “Know Your Memes.”[5]

  • About

    [Laughs In Spanish] refers to a series of images and screenshots with the snowclone“[X in Y language]” meant to subtitle the action taking place in the image. In the snowclone, X is replaced with a universal noise that does not need language clarification.

    Precursor

    The meme is an evolution of Descriptive Noise, a genre of images where subtitles humorously describe the audio of the accompanying image. On June 13th, 2011, the single topic blog Descriptive Noise[3] launched with a still shot from the History Channel’s show Larry the Cable Guy (shown below). In the image, Larry and five teenagers are shown holding up frogs and smiling while the caption reads [indistinct mumbling].



    Origin

    The [X in Spanish] meme was first used in reference to Soraya Montenegro, the antagonist of Mexican telenovela María la del Barrio. On November 27th, 2014, Redditor InsomniacAlways submitted a screenshot image of a teary-eyed Soraya with the audio-descriptive English subtitle reading “Cries in Spanish” in a /r/funny[1] post titled “Have you ever been so mad you cried in Spanish?” garnering more than 1.7 million views on Imgur and 3,742 points on Reddit.



    Spread

    On March 23rd, 2015, a single topic blog titled Life in Spanish[2] was launched on Tumblr with various screenshots of Soraya from María la del Barrio captioned with parody subtitles in English based on the snowclone [X in Spanish].



    Over the following two years, dozens of derivatives appeared using the snowclone using various actions and languages, though sometimes the language half of the snowclone was switched to simply an adjective. On March 7th, 2017, Fraolinch submitted a thread to /r/OutOfTheLoop[4] asking about the origin of the snowclone.

  • Overview

    #TapperDirtFile is a satirical hashtag containing humorous, innocuous factoids about CNN anchor Jake Tapper, which were inspired by rumors that he was being targeted by the GOP for aggressively questioning Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway in early February 2017.

    Background

    On February 7th, 2017, Tapper questioned Conway about why United States President Donald Trump had yet to offer sympathy to Canadians following a shooting that occurred at a Quebec mosque the previous month (shown below).



    The following day, the news site Axios[2] reported that an anonymous source claimed “Republican operatives” were urging a conservative blog to write “hit pieces” on Tapper in retaliation for the Conway interview. That day, Tapper jokingly launched the hashtag “#TapperDirtFile”[7] in response to the rumors, featuring various innocuous factoids about his past (shown below).[1]



    Developments

    That day, other Twitter users posted parody facts about Tapper’s lifestyle and history along with the “#TapperDirtFile” hashtag (shown below). Meanwhile, Twitter created a Moments page highlighting notable #TapperDirtFile tweets.[4]



    Hoaxes

    On February 23rd, the @OMFGNN Twitter feed posted a 2007 recording of Dog the Bounty Hunter’s racist rant falsely attributed to Jake Tapper. The tweet was subsequently deleted, but the video was reuploaded to the TRexstasy YouTube channel (shown below).



    That day, Tapper tweeted that the “alt-Reich” was falsely attributing the audio to him (shown below). Meanwhile, the news site RawStory[3] published an article about the hoax titled “Gullible Trump supporters go nuts over fake audio of ‘Jake Tapper’s racist rant’.”



    Following Wikileaks release of the Vault 7 Leaks on March 7th, a photoshopped tweet appearing to call for the assassination of Julian Assange was falsely attributed to Tapper, with many claiming he had deleted the tweet shortly after posting it (shown below).[6]
