    About

    Don Draper Life Cereal Pitch Parodies refers to a series of exploitable image parodies based on a scene from the American dramatic television series Mad Men. In the scene, the lead character Don Draper attempts to sell an advertising campaign for Life cereal while drunk. Online, people replace the image for Life cereal with references to other public relations and advertising blunders as well as ridiculous or absurd ideas.

    Origin

    On August 29th, 2010, AMC[1] aired the episode of the television series Mad Men entitled “Waldorf Stories.” During the episode, the main character Don Draper wins a prestigious advertising award, and while riding on the high of winning, he decides to pitch a campaign to Life cereal while drunk. Draper then pitches while visibly intoxicated. This moment of him attempting to maintain composure in front of a white board is the inspiration for the meme. On May 24th, 2011, YouTuber[2] ryleeryno posted the scene to YouTube, receiving more than 279,000 views in six years.



    Two years later, on March 21st, 2012, Uproxx[3] published a list entitled “If Don Draper Handled Modern Marketing.” Within the list of parody pitches by Don Draper, the author included an image from “Waldorf Stories,” with the logo for Netflix and the word Qwikster, Netflix’s botched DVD mailer rebranding (shown below).

    Overview

    All-Female “Lord of the Flies” Adaptation refers to the response toward the reports that the Warner Bros. movie production studio was pursuing an adaptation of Lord of the Flies starring an all-female cast. After the announcement, people complained that casting women in the film missed the point of the source material, which they assert is about toxic masculinity.

    Background

    On August 30th, 2017, Deadline[1] reported that Scott McGehee and David Siegel signed a deal with Warner Bros. to produce an all-female adaptation of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. The book follows a group of boys who get stranded on a deserted island and resort to violence to control the group. On the adaptation, the filmmakers said,

    “We want to do a very faithful but contemporized adaptation of the book, but our idea was to do it with all girls rather than boys,” said David Siegel. “It is a timeless story that is especially relevant today, with the interpersonal conflicts and bullying, and the idea of children forming a society and replicating the behavior they saw in grownups before they were marooned.”

    “Taking the opportunity to tell it in a way it hasn’t been told before, with girls rather than boys, is that it shifts things in a way that might help people see the story anew,” said McGehee. "It breaks away from some of the conventions, the ways we think of boys and aggression. People still talk about the movie and the book from the standpoint of pure storytelling. It is a great adventure story, real entertainment, but it has a lot of meaning embedded in it as well. We’ve gotten to think about this awhile as the rights were worked out, and we’re super eager to put pen to paper.”

  • 08/31/17--12:56: Sons Of P'taah
  • About

    Sons Of P’taah is a cult primarily revolving around the divine beings P’taah, Jeff and Ashtar Sheran. It further includes many lesser Gods such as Jim, Nurul Azam or z’Hansrüedi. It can be compared to the Cult of Kek, which expresses a similar structure. However, the followers of Sons Of P’taah (known as d’isciples and referring to each other as b’rothers) take their calling very seriously – While heavy ironic memeing is widespread and an innate part of the cult’s culture, posts are almost always accompanied by a summon to “p’raise”, which expresses the disciplines’ strong belief and admiration for the great Gods. Each God or divine being can be addressed, summoned or flattered directly by “p’raise X”, where X is the name of the figure involved.

    Origin

    Sons Of Ptaah has a versatile history. Similar to the Cult of Kek, it incorporated previously existing mystical and religious elements while adding its own lore on top of it. In his natural habitat Discord, user Guneo [1] mentioned on an ironic server that he had discovered the “Ashtar’s Galactic People Cult” [2]. Intrigued by this news, user Ebnetboy [3] proposed that the group publicize their own grand truths extending the original revelation of Ashtar. And so Sons Of Ptaah was born, the cult’s first lore video being uploaded on June 19th 2017 [4]. A wide range of diverse memes have spawned from Sons Of Ptaah, often involving phrases, dates and divine beings essential to the cult.
    The cult’s name stems from the character P’taah, a central personality in yet another astrological new-age sect [5].

    The Cult

    Core Beliefs

    The core conflict in the Sons of P’taah cult stems from the everlasting battle between the forces of relatableness and unrelatableness. Relatableness is expressed through heavy ironic memeing, out-of-the-box thinking and generally simply being creative instead of a shallow product of mainstream culture. On the other hand, unrelatableness is channeled excessively by normies, who will stop at nothing to be as boring and bland as possible. Relatable beings take issue with this, especially because normies infect all known humor with their unrelatableness. As a counterweight to this, the relatable memers try to keep their in-jokes at a safe distance from the dark and vast unrelatableness that consumes everything once touched. This is the cosmic goal of the Sons of P’taah and all their divinities: To restore relatableness to a wicked and twisted world, whatever the odds.

    Primary Gods

    P’taah

    P’taah is the divine being the cult has appropriated its name from. He originally was a prominent character for those who believe in the extraterrestrial race of the Plejarens [6]. For the cult itself, he represents the leader of all relatable cosmic beings and takes on the role of a powerful God. He is the central figure when it comes to Sons Of P’taah, having made an appearance on every single video the group has ever posted. Searching his name on Youtube returns dozens of results with tens of thousands of views dedicated to his role on the “astral plane”. Mantras, lore videos and even livestreams are plentiful [].

    Ashtar Sheran

    Ashtar is the second most powerful God in the Sons Of P’taah universe. Likewise to P’taah and his origin story, Ashtar was seen as an extraterrestrial being benevolent to humans and the universe as a whole. Again, Sons Of P’taah takes this further, promoting him to a God. He is closer to humans living on earth than P’taah himself, who prefers to take a back seat on human relations and concentrates on wiping out all unrelatableness from the world.
    Ashtar remains a very popular figure with believers of the Plejarens or followers of similar new-age cosmic religions. In the intro sequence of newer Sons Of P’taah videos, an excerpt of the “Divine Mantra of Ashtar Sheran and Lord Gorloj” can be heard. Said video had garnered over 160’000 views by June 2017 [].

    Jeff

    Jeff is a controversial figure in the Sons Of P’taah cult. The community is divided on whether or not he should be included as a celestial being at all; with advocates proposing that Jeff did indeed create the world we currently inhabit and detractors insisting that this information is false and that Jeff’s only power lies in his popular use as an ironic meme.

    Lesser Gods

    Jim

    Jim is one of the most beloved Gods in the cult’s following due to his (literally) massive irony levels.

    Antagonists

    Justyn

    Justyn is a major antagonist in the Sons Of P’taah universe. On his Instagram page he posts extremely unrelatable memes [], prompting the cult to declare him a danger to the whole relatable world. He first appeared in the Sons Of P’taah lore video “TOP 5 EPIC #E’PIC FACTSABOUTNURULAZAM (spanish version available in east africa)”, his dreadfully snapchat-disfigured face springing into view one second before the video ends []. He then continued to make short appearances in every video, indicating that his power was growing stronger by the day. Finally, the arch nemesis’ history was fully addressed by the cult in “Justyn The unrelatable” []. In the video, it is explained that Justyn has the power to “make relatable things unrelate”, using his vile gift to escape a black hole set up by Gods with the intention of trapping him. He flees to East Africa, where he currently still resides, and proceeds to create the three unrelatable antirelics in his workshop: 9GAG, iFunny and MemeCenter. Should the three antirelics ever come into contact with the original three relatable relics, they will obliterate each other, releasing insane amounts of energy in the process and plunging the world into chaos. If this were to occur, 2017 could no longer source its power from the three relics Aldi, Lidl and Tesco, which would imply the demise of all living beings. Therefore it is currently the Gods highest priority to stop Justyn, his assailants and the general unreletableness they spread.

    Windows XP

    Windows XP is an evil operating system designed and released by the Microsoft Corporation []. It is noted as an antagonist in the video “ Nurul AZAM∗Praise jim∗ resurrection from[1827]” []. Also mentioned is the fact that this ancient evil has persisted for more than 10 billion billion years. It is unknown whether the Gods have dealt with this force already.

    In Comparison to other Religions

    Due to its many celestial beings and Gods, Sons Of P’taah should be considered a polytheistic religion. Therefore it does not fit in with the three monotheistic “great religions”, namely Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Instead it exhibits closer similarities to Hinduism or Buddhism, where numerous Gods with their own powers, desires, needs and functions exist.

    Phrases

    To distinguish true d’isciples from normalfags or atheists, the cult has adopted a particular form of writing. Continuing the legacy of the cult’s holy scriptures, text formatting (italic, bold, strikethrough) is not permitted. Instead, a hashtag is placed in front of a word for means of conveying emphasis. Furthermore, words starting with a consonant may additionally be fitted with one or more apostrophes at whichever positions the poster deems most relatable. However some words, such as p’raise, b’rother, d’isciple and P’taah, have established themselves in the cult and should not be modified further except on special occasions. Deliberate misspellings are commonplace and even welcomed as long as the message or its meaning can still be fully deciphered. While a novice may not understand the composition or logic of sentences authored by a cult member and may believe that a few words sprinkled with a random selection of attributes suffices, the art form requires skill and a fine-grained feel for the subculture. Imposters can be exposed swiftly by close examination of their texts.

    The following examples try to capture the spirit of this notable penmanship:

    p’raise Jime b’rother!!
    Why are you such a #salty individual? Such #"unrelatable’ness can only stem from the #dark lo’rd himself… You must be one of jus’tyne’s asailantes! :angry:
    But we can only #p’raise. Let us hope that th’e #bless’ed ##Nurul can defeat’e the evi"l forces of W’indows X"P.

    Spread

    Sons Of P’taah, its subculture and the memes it has fathered have mainly been confined to Discord. On ironically cancerous servers it remains quite popular, with the inexhaustible cult lore being shared or images of divinities being stretched, blurred or otherwise manipulated comedically. To find a server dedicated to Sons Of P’taah is a straightforward task: The participants of said servers exhibit a sense of humor that will mystify any outsider or normie. This includes laughing at extremely stretched photos, stock images of basic objects (such as glasses of water, wood, pens, paper clips etc.), disfiguring words and phrases into the unintelligible (“smoke weed” → “smînke wædé”) and impersonating despised political movements or activists to name a few. The most difficult step is actually joining such an ironic server, given that these are often closed groups whose members feel immense contempt for mainstream society. Therefore proving that one comes from a similarly ironic background and can adapt to the server’s culture is of utmost importance. The “BlazinSkrubs [6] Fanbase Server” is a perfect example of this cancerous environment. Any Sons Of P’taah server will retain these very same characteristics at their core.

    To clarify lore concerns, Sons Of P’taah launched their official Youtube channel [7] in June 2017. Traction has been slow but steady, with users simply relying on other group members to inform themselves of the lore instead of subscribing to the channel directly. This has caused some major disputes within the community concerning the cult’s storyline and characters (see § The Cult> Primary Gods> Jeff), and new members are advised to aquire lore information from the source and not through third parties.

    References to Sons Of P’taah have infrequently been found scattered on Instagram [8]. However, it cannot be said that the cult or its memes have taken off on this platform.

    The primary home for Sons Of P’taah has always been and still remains Discord to this day.

    LUL is a BTTV (Better Twitch.TV) emoticon featuring a picture of John Bain, commonly known as TotalBiscuit. Much like the internet slang “LOL”, LUL is a deviation of the word, and commonly used as a form of laughter in Twitch streams.

    Origin

    The original picture was taken by Photographer Itsjustatank in 2013. Although the whereabouts of how the image came out is unknown, in 2014, TotalBiscuit used it later on as one of his Channel Subscriptions emotes, formelly called “cynicalLaugh”.

    Copyright and Takedown

    On July of 2014, Biscuit received a DMCA take down by the photographer for the unauthorized use of the picture, due of it being included as a subscription emote.

    In 2016, LUL was brought back in the BetterTTV extension, and slowly spreading to the Twitch platform. Although when BTTV wasn’t commonly used before, lots of users who weren’t using the extension, weren’t able to see the emote and all they could read was “LUL” instead of with the extension on.


    Since then, it’s received a lot of attention and usage from everyone in the platform, including hundreds of spin-offs from streamers and also different versions of the same image by BTTV, such as MEGALUL, ULTRALULANDOMEGALUL

    In September 1st of 2017, LUL was officially implemented as a global Twitch.tv emote, making it visible for anyone. Although it’s not the original version of the photograph, but a modified image to avoid copyright infringement.

  • 09/02/17--01:00: The Final Bongs of Big Ben
  • The Final Bongs of Big Ben is a meme where the final chimes of Big Ben in London were altered to display different music and sounds including Rick Ashley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”, A-ha’s “Take On Me” and the Soviet Union national anthem. The meme also usually starts and ends with a BBC News commentator explaining that the bongs heard would be the last “for some time”.

    Origin

    On August 21, 2017, Big Ben in London had bonged for the last time until 2021 due to repair works being done on the Elizabeth Tower that Big Ben is located in. The final bongs were covered by BBC News and other media channels and many people had turned out to hear the final bongs.

    On August 31, 2017, the YouTube user Cryanek uploaded a parody video of the final bongs of Big Ben and shortly after, YouTubers started uploading their own parodies of Big Ben’s final chimes.
