"5 stars for X" possibly a meme?

“5 stars for X” (for example “5 stars for boobies” is a catchphrase found in YouTube videos (mostly through annotations) for asking people to rate their video 5 stars. I’m seeing this catchphrase in almost every video. Could this be a phrase meme?


EDIT: I know I posted this in the wrong forum, forgive me :D

What does this have to do with Shane Dawson?
Anyway, I need materials before I can make an actual verdict.
Evidence and such. You know, lionks. I need some lionks.

it’s everywhere actually. It’s not a video or an image macro like usual memes, but I don’t know. And yes I know Shane Dawson isn’t funny, I’m not a followed, I just accidentally his video :p

It needs enough derivatives and fame to be a meme.

It needs enough derivatives and fame to be NOTEWORTHY.
It only has to be a learned behavior to be a meme, which is why the question of “is this a meme” is almost always irrelevant.

The derivatives are part of the learned behavior, right?
