Sponsered Memes

I was thinking of doing an entry on an infamous and forced type of meme known as a sponsered meme. Basically, sponsered memes are captioned memes that companies use to try to promote their product. Most of these sponsered memes are on Memebase. Unfortunately for the company, these memes tend to suck and are very well hated by online communities, but they have a spread these days.

Are you referring to corporate use of memes for advertising, like this?

(This was plastered on a building near where I used to live.) The topic was been mentioned briefly in the Meme Elitism entry, but I think it probably does deserve its own entry. I’d make it a subculture, and I’d be happy to help if you want.

Yeah, somewhat. Remember the Yaris thing on Memebase? That’s a good example.

Yeah. We had the Chevy Sonic here on KYM too.
