(VIDEO CONTAINS EXCESS PROFANITY; VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK)

Not long after the video emerged on Youtube, specifically 4 days after the incident, YTMND satirized the incident, even using the alias: “KKKramer”

On the same day, an dictionary entry on urbandictionary used the term.

I definitely remember when this came out.
It may be a meme, it really depends on how many instances and stuff it has made.
But even if it isn’t a meme, it WAS viral.

We should get a viral section.

A viral section would definitely be nice.

Yes, but a way to sort for those things that are specifically viral, as opposed to just searching for the memetic and getting told that it is viral as a bonus.

Definitely viral, definitely worth creating an entry for that reason. Go for it, BZ.
