    Overview

    Nick Robinson “Krystal From Star Fox” Controversy refers to a tweet sent out by social media comedian and Polygon writer Nick Robinson saying that anyone who claims they had not masturbated to the character Krystal from Star Fox Adventures is lying. The tweet drew backlash from a feminist blog and created a dialogue on Twitter in March of 2017.

    Background

    On March 26th, 2017, Robinson tweeted[1]“no offense but anyone who acts like they didn’t jack off to Krystal from Star Fox Adventures is lying to you.” His tweet gained over 900 retweets and 3,000 likes.



    The following day, Anita Sarkeesian of blog Feminist Frequency angrily responded[2] to Robinson’s tweet, saying “Nobody in our office feels that way about Krystal. In fact, we find her character deeply disappointing. Here’s why.” She then linked to a video produced by her team on the “damsels in distress” trope of video gaming (photoshop collage of the whole exchange below).



    Developments

    Instantly the moment became a target of jokes on Twitter as people mostly agreed that Sarkeesian’s response and the ensuing dialogue about sexual-attraction to video game characters was over-the-top.



    On the 28th, popular Twitter user @leyawn[3] tweeted a mashup of the discourse with Expanding Brain and Kirby’s Human Feet to satirize the stupidity of the conversation (shown below).



    On the 29th, a thread about the controversy was posted to /r/OutOfTheLoop[4] and gained 825 points.

    About

    “Tag a Friend and Don’t Say Anything” and “Tag a Friend and Say Nothing” are popular captions on posts with strange content. The direction “tag a friend and say nothing” helps the post spread by inviting users to tag their friends, inviting them to see it, while providing no context that would explain the content. Posts with this caption experienced a surge in early 2017.

    Origin

    The caption appears to have started appearing as early as mid-2015. Some of the earliest known posts to use variations of the phrase include a Vine[1] of a soccer save posted July 27th, 2015, and a video using the Spider-Man Ass Slap posted to Instagram[2] on October 29th the same year. On November 29th, 2016, an Instagram video by @funnyhoodvidz with the caption was posted to YouTube (shown below), though the original post has since been deleted.



    Spread

    “Tag Yourself and Don’t Say Anything” started becoming a proper meme in the beginning of 2017, when dozens of videos appeared on YouTube and Instagram with that title. One of the first posted that year came on January 30th, and showed a remix of the Brazil Dog Dance.



    Several other videos with the caption appeared in the coming months. However, none were as popular as an animation by Kirsten Lepore titled “Hi Stranger” (shown below).

  • 04/01/17--04:26: /r/place
  • Overview

    /r/place is Reddit’s 2017 April Fool’s Day event subreddit, which contains a shared HTML5 1024 × 1024 pixel canvas for users to place one pixel from 16 available colors every 10 minutes.

    Background

    On April 1st, 2017, the /r/place[1] subreddit was launched, which gathered filled with upwards upwards of 86,000 subscribers by 3pm that day.



    Developments

    The Red Corner vs. The Blue Corner

    The Red Corner and Blue Corner (/r/RedCorner[2] and /r/BlueCorner[3] respectively) were two of the most immediate opposing groups created. The Blue Corner gained much more support than their Red counterpart, and was able to cripple The Red Corner’s efforts very quickly, as well as creating the largest contiguous pixel space at the time of writing.



    Trans Flag & 4chan Raid

    The Trans Flag (/r/TransFlagPlace) was an effort to create a ‘blue-pink-white-pink-blue’-patterned stripe, spanning the entirety of the canvas both horizontally and vertically. Upon taking notice, 4chan’s /pol/, /b/, and /v/ boards concocted plans to hijack the stripe by overwriting existing artwork and projects, in an attempt to create conflict between the Trans Flag group and others.



    • Note the two figures at the top-left. This was a primary target of the /pol/ false flag raid to overwrite artwork using the trans flag.
    • Also note the void mass to the right of the origin. The trans flag originally passed directly through the mass, but was eventually overrun by Void users.

    Black Hole / Void

    The Black Hole / Void was a group dedicated to expanding a contiguous black ‘void’ in the canvas. Early on, there was a small black demon representing the group, but it was later swallowed as the void expanded.


    Void

    Art

    Many ‘pixel-art’ styled displays were created and destroyed during the event.
