I see some of them fizzling out already. You just don’t see I Kiss You mentioned much more.
There will always be memes, but specific memes come and go.
Memes may go down eventually, unforrtunately. Holding onto certain classic memes such AYBABTU will keep it going, though.
Memes are all around you, and they’re not going away. I think they’ll probably start to become less easily recgonized.
Awesome video, dude, but is it a meme? I’ve never heard of this before. Where are the remixes?
Nope. “This is My Milwaukee” is not a meme. I was just saying that niche communities like those who were in on the short-lived “This is My Milwaukee” Alternate Reality Game dug so hard into figuring out what was a clue and what wasn’t, that certain elements of the video became somewhat memetic amongst the players.
So I just figured that as time goes, interests become more diverse, and ever-smaller communities will begin creating more mutations of their own in-jokes. I don’t think memes are going anywhere. In fact, I’d say they’ll start popping up from the least expected places.
In the video, there are numerous appearances of a fennel bulb, and at one point during the video, it is eluded to as a “family tree.” Coloring-book style drawings of the Fennel bulb show up in the video as well.
On the unfiction forums, people decided to start coloring their own Family Trees.
Now, I wouldn’t call this a meme yet because of its small scale, but had it happened in a larger community, it almost certainly would have become a meme eventually.
A gene is still a gene, even if it exists only in a single (extended) family. I think the same should apply to memes. The question is rather how common or popular it is.
Nice video btw!
fun fact: the video was shot in New York. Not Milwaukee.
“The more you know” banner just went over my head.
I revived this pearl from page 10.
