  • 08/03/17--07:11: Nerf Or Nothing
  • About

    Nerf or Nothin’ refers to a series of copypastas and image macros based on the 1990s NERF toy company tagline “It’s Nerf or Nothin’.” As it is used online, the catchphrase uses the implication that there is only one option, NERF.

    Origin

    After being acquired by Hasbro[1] and Parker Brothers in 1991, the Nerf underwent a rebranding to more action-based sales pitch, following the success of the Blast-a-Matic line of toys.In addition to expanding their line of toy guns, and moving away from the foam balls that made the company famous, they dropped their classic tagline “Get Real. Get Nerf.” for “It’s Nerf or Nothin’.” The earliest examples of the line being used in a commercial is from a series of 1993 ads featuring Final Destination actor Devon Sawa.

    Your Last Text is Democrats’ 2018 Slogan is a social game popular on Twitter starting in August of 2017 where users post the last text message they sent and say it will be the Democrats’ campaign slogan in the 2018 midterm elections. The game started after several stories about Democrats’ highly-criticized ideas for slogans had surfaced in the previous weeks.

    Origin

    On August 2nd, 2017, Twitter user @MattNegrin[1] posted a tweet that read “The last text you sent is the Democrats’ slogan for 2018.” The tweet gained over 850 retweets and 3,900 likes in one day (shown below). The tweet came after stories of the Democrats’ ideas for official campaign slogan which were highly mocked. On July 5th, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent out ideas for slogans via email that many considered feckless, leading to parodies of the email. Then, on July 20th, it was leaked that their slogan would be “A Better Deal: Better Skills. Better Jobs. Better Wages,” which was also mocked online.



    Spread

    Responses to Negrin’s tweet came quickly. The most popular tweets playing the game echoed the haplessness of the Democrats’ actual ideas for slogans. For example, Twitter user @yourpaltim[2] posted a joke making fun of Democrats’ performance in the 2016 United States Presidential Election, gaining over 220 retweets and 1,700 likes (shown below, left). User @npenny[3] posted a similar joke that gained over 230 retweets and 1,300 likes (shown below, right). The following day, the jokes were posted to Twitter Moments.[4] Buzzfeed,[5] Washington Examiner,[6] and others picked up the story as well.

  • 08/03/17--13:56: Agamemnon Counterpart
  • Agamemnon Counterpart is an extremely strange video with no context to describe the subject matter, but can best be described as “a cursed cartoon videotape”. In modern years, this video became a meme.

    Origin

    The short video was created by artist Jason Kovac for Destination Imagination 2001, an art showcase competition. While it is unknown how the video did at the competition, the video would gain more recognition when it was uploaded to YouTube by user fividtelefuzzerator back in June 2006.

    The video starts off with a low quality VHS warning screen. After that, text appears saying:

    In the year 2571, a videocassette was found in a pile of rubble on the ruins of a certain blue planet. What you are about to witness are not the contents of the cassette. This is an entirely different recording.

    Next up, footage of cartoon characters walking up to the screen with text stating “Let’s Make A New Friend” appears. Electro disco music can be heard throughout. Not long after the introduction though, screaming begins. This screaming accompanies many more trippy shots of these characters. The video ends soon after as the music begins to degrade.

    It should be noted that the screaming is from the French film A Cry From Within, while the music is from the American film The Human Tornado.

    Spread

    A few years after the video was uploaded, a creepypasta based on the video was released, detailing that it was a videocassette associated with a Japanese rape murder case. The story quickly grew popular and since then, parodies or videos relating to Agamemnon Counterpart slowly started appearing.

    These kinds of videos range from standard parodies, to reaction videos, and more.

  • 08/03/17--16:21: Cursed Kleenex Commercial
  • Cursed Kleenex Commercial refers to a 1986 Japanese commercial for Kleenex that gained infamy due to its disturbing nature and the urban legends surrounding it.

    Origin

    The ad first aired in Japan back in 1986. It depicted a woman and a baby dressed as a mythical creature as they sat on the floor. Near them is an open Kleenex box. The woman makes loving gestures to the baby, before letting a tissue fly into the air. All this set to the Miss Jane song “It’s A Fine Day”. That same year, two sequel ads were released, though one of them seems lost as of now.

    As soon as it aired, many viewers complained about the unintentionally creepy nature of the ad. Some viewers said the song was a chilling Russian chant (even though the song is in English). After getting fed up with these complaints, Kleenex took the ad down to never be aired again.

    Back in May of 2006, the first YouTube upload of the ad was made thanks to user derioderio

    Spread

    As the video became available online, people began making rumors that everyone in the ad (the woman, the baby, and even the cameraman) died after the filming. It was also stated that anyone who simply watched the ad would die or get cursed.

    The ad got more popularity when a video was posted showing what would happen to the ad when viewed at midnight. The video has since been mentioned in many “scary content” videos.

    People Are Applauding This Man For Celebrating His Wife’s Curves refers to a Buzzfeed article about a man who wrote an Instagram post about how he loves his “curvy” wife. While some took the article in good faith, the article also started discourse online from people who thought the article proved that standards for men are too low.

    Origin

    On July 30th, 2017, author Robert Tripp posted to Instagram[1] about his wife, Sarah Tripp, a body-positive fashion blogger and owner of Sassy Red Lipstick (shown below). In the post, he lauded his wife’s curves, and spoke about his attraction to women who did not fit the social standard for attractiveness (i.e., not skinny).

    || I love this woman and her curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to girls on the thicker side, ones who were shorter and curvier, girls that the average (basic) bro might refer to as "chubby" or even "fat." Then, as I became a man and started to educate myself on issues such as feminism and how the media marginalizes women by portraying a very narrow and very specific standard of beauty (thin, tall, lean) I realized how many men have bought into that lie. For me, there is nothing sexier than this woman right here: thick thighs, big booty, cute little side roll, etc. Her shape and size won't be the one featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan but it's the one featured in my life and in my heart. There's nothing sexier to me than a woman who is both curvy and confident; this gorgeous girl I married fills out every inch of her jeans and is still the most beautiful one in the room. Guys, rethink what society has told you that you should desire. A real woman is not a porn star or a bikini mannequin or a movie character. She's real. She has beautiful stretch marks on her hips and cute little dimples on her booty. Girls, don't ever fool yourself by thinking you have to fit a certain mold to be loved and appreciated. There is a guy out there who is going to celebrate you for exactly who you are, someone who will love you like I love my Sarah. || photo cred: kaileehjudd</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A post shared by ROBBIE TRIPP™ (tripp) on

When that post hit Twitter, users bemoaned the fact that Tripp was getting applauded essentially for being in love with his wife, a curvy woman, while noting that his wife was not very overweight, if at all. For example, popular Twitter user @OhNoSheTwitnt[4] compared the praise the man was getting to the praise Donald Trump gets when he delivers a speech without insulting anyone (shown below, left). Twitter user @StewCElliott[5] tweeted "The bar has been so lowered that “finding wife attractive” is now considered an achievement" (shown below, right).



    As the article was mocked on Twitter, jokes about it manifested, often in the form of parodies of the article’s title. Others paired the article’s title with a different, humorous image (examples shown below).

    #FireHannity is a hashtag campaign to have Fox News Reporter and TV Host Sean Hannity fired from Fox News for spreading misinformation to favor the Donald Trump administration, particularly with regards to Seth Rich’s Death.

    Background

    Calls for firing Hannity have come since May of 2017 for his participation in the story of Seth Rich’s Death. Media Matters[4] called for a boycott of Hannity on May 23rd. According the Newsweek,[1] a more official movement was launched with a website, FireHannity.org[2] by the Democratic Coalition in mid-June of 2017. The group launched a Twitter[3] account on June 29th, 2017. According to FireHannity.org, the campaign was launched after Hannity called for a boycott of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s show. The group aims to get Hannity fired by pressuring advertisers on his show to cease advertising with Hannity, a tactic that helped contribute to the firing of Bill O’Reilly.

    Developments

    While initially, enthusiasm for the campaign was light (according to Newsweek,[1] the site only attracted about 100,000 visitors in its first month), the campaign gained momentum following Rod Wheeler’s lawsuit against the Donald Trump administration for trying to push the conspiracy theories involved with Seth Rich’s Death. The Seth Rich story had long been a fascination of Hannity, who reported conspiracy theories around the death often on his show. According to Lerner, since the launch of the campaign, 14 of the 150 advertisers on Hannity’s show have ceased advertising with him.
