  • 06/06/17--08:30: Lawnmower Man
  • About

    Lawnmower Man refers to an image of a Canadian man mowing his lawn while a tornado is in the distance. The casualness of the man with the inclement weather so close behind him caused the photo to go viral and led to photoshops of the picture.

    Origin

    On June 3rd, 2017, a tornado went through Three Hills, Canada, a town in Alberta. While it was happening, Canadian man Theunis Wessels decided to mow his lawn. His wife took a picture of him casually mowing his lawn and posted it on Facebook that evening.[1] The photo quickly went viral, gaining over 4,000 shares (shown below).



    Spread

    The following day, the photo was covered by CBC News,[2] where Wessels was interviewed and commented that while the tornado looks threatening in the photo, it was much farther away than it appeared and that he was “keeping an eye on it.” That quote became a popular joke associated with the picture. On Tumblr, a screenshot of CBC News’ tweeted headline featuring the quote gained over 124,000 notes.[3] In the comments shared with the post, user mortalityplays wrote “Every local headline I see out of canada is like this or someone punching a bear in the face. Are you guys okay?”, to which user raisehelia responded “we’re keeping an eye on things.” On Twitter, user @ningiou[4] posted the picture and captioned it “stopping thru an important event of the main story to do sidequests,” gaining over 27,000 retweets and 52,000 likes.



    The photo continued to spread on Reddit and Neogaf. On the latter, a photoshop of the image combined with the movie poster for the film Lawnmower Man was posted to /r/funny,[5] gaining over 4,000 notes (shown below, left). On Neogaf, a thread about the story was soon filled with users photoshopping Wessels into different scenarios, such as War of the Worlds (shown below, right).

If it’s a Pitbull song, it most likely has it in the beginning. It’s like a verbal tick he can’t get rid of. Just like how any politician always says “God Bless America” at the end of every speech." The post received more than 70 upvotes.

    He who controls the covfefe, controls the universe!

    Originally there was a mashup of a Dune movie screenshot which incorporates the head of Donal Trump showing his “obsession with his portrayal”. Which came from twitter @DougBierend as first reference found via Google.

    Several weeks and months later, as Trump finally was elected and is now the President of the United States, we all had a lot to read on his private and his official Twitter feeds.

    Sometimes, even his staff does not understand, what he tweets.

    At least, it seems so.

    Trump tweets a lot, and not all of his tweets seem to make sense to most people. Sometimes he even tweets stuff which is just irritating in the first place and leaves one nearly speechless by chance…..

    So this meme, needed to adapt to that.

    So even this mashup needed to evolve and gain new details.

    Via Google+ ( https://plus.google.com/+RyanAyyLmao/posts/2xoHTyXUNsA )

    It was transmitted and in effect transputed over https://plus.google.com/+Jo%C3%A3oSerrano/posts/QwsZ51Xsv2Q to eventually and finally reveal the full truth of this world:

    He who controls the covfefe, controls the universe!

    I wonder, to what it will lead to, finally……

    John Mulaney Standup Routine

    The song became most notable online following the release of a popular stand-up comedy routine by John Mulaney called “The Salt and Pepper Diner.” In the routine, Mulaney tells a story about how he and his friend selected the song to play over and over in a jukebox at a diner. The song plays several times, much to the chagrin of the diner’s patrons. As part of their prank, the pair selected another Tom Jones hit, “It’s Not Unusual,” to play after several runs of “What’s New Pussycat?” This was a major relief for the customers, until “What’s New Pussycat” began playing again. The routine was included in Mulaney’s album The Top Part, released March 24th, 2009 on iTunes.[2]



    On February 3rd, 2013, Tumblr account timetoputonashow,[3] since deactivated, uploaded a video of Mulaney performing the routine, gaining over 750,000 notes. This is credited by memearchives as likely being the post that popularized the routine on the site. In the following years, homages to and jokes about the routine spread through Tumblr, as the song acquired an ironic fandom. On May 9th, 2015, user mrfrustrum uploaded an edit of the audio where the “Whoa” of the song is stretched out, gaining over 108,000 notes (shown below).

    In June of 2017, the MMORPG Old School RuneScape (OSRS) announced an LGBT Pride celebration event, which was to be temporarily added in-game to promote LGBT acceptance and awareness. Upon announcement, the proposed event was met with backlash and strongly polarised reactions from players. Many felt that the event should not be added as it was irrelevant to the game and because some use it as an escape from real world issues, whilst others praised it for promoting LGBT awareness and acceptance.

    About

    On June 5th 2017, Jagex employee Mod Wolf [1] posted a tweet announcing the upcoming Pride event which was designed with the intention of promoting the LGBT community within the Old School community. The event was backed with support from the rest of the Old School development team.


    Reception

    Shortly after making the announcement, many players took to the OSRS subreddit [2] and game forums to voice their concerns and opinions about the event. While some praised the event for promoting the LGBT community, others argued that the event was out of place in the game and too controversial to be added. In addition to this, many argued that the event should not be instantly added as one of the core values of the Old School game was not upheld; that all new content is voted on before being added, rejected or modified. The event was not officially polled to players in game, which led to further controversy that the developers were ignoring players’ wishes to push their own agendas. A subsequent strawpoll conducted by those on the subreddit showed a large majority of players did not want the event added in game; the outcome of which was refuted by Mod Mat K, the project manager for OSRS.

    Online Relevance

    WIP

    News of the controversy quickly spread and was subsequently picked up by multiple online new sites. An article containing an interview with Wolf and Mat K was uploaded by Motherboard [3] in which they discuss the event, their intentions and the controversy surrounding it. In addition to this, a video was uploaded by YouTuber Mister Metokur in which he discusses the controversy and gives offers his thoughts on the situation.

  • 06/07/17--13:00: Y Can't Metroid Crawl
  • About

    Y Can’t Metroid Crawl is a phrasal meme within the gaming and Metroid communities as a way to joke about inexperienced gamers after a user posted that comment to the Miiverse while playing Super Metroid.

    Origin

    On May 16th, 2013, Miiverse poster PaulyU posted “Y Can’t Metroid Crawl?” to the Miiverse with a screenshot of Samus standing in front of a spot where she is supposed to roll (shown below).

    The post quickly went viral online as users mocked both PaulyU’s obliviousness to Samus’ roll function and the fact he called Samus “Metroid.” Threads were posted to Neogaf[1] and Reddit[2] the following day including PaulyU’s post in a collage with other players struggling with Metroid.



    On May 28th, Kotaku[3] reported that PaulyU had finally beaten Super Metroid and documented the experience with various other comments. For example, at the end of the game when a Metroid appears, he commented “Jellyfish is helping yes.”



    The phrase became a popular in-joke in the fandom for the inexperience PaulyU displayed. It was documented on the Miiverse Wiki,[4] where it is noted that the comment gained over 3000 “Yeahs” as of September 2015, though it has since been deleted. On April 28th, 2014, Nintendo acknowledged the popularity of the phrase by tweeting a joke about it (shown below, left). On October 3rd, 2014, Twitter user @Electivirus posted a screenshot in Super Smash Brothers WiiU that seemed to reference the joke (shown below, right).
