There have been various videos likes this, and I’m wondering if this would be considered a meme.

Ha it’s hilarious I could see this becoming one

I would be willing to look up more information if you submitted it and help you out.

This is just one of many, MANY submissions for Colbert’s “Green Screen Challenge” he did a long time ago (around 2006-2007).

Check out the final cuts here.

Some people feel that emergent memes (memes that just seem to form out of nowhere) are the only “legitimate” memes. But I’ve seen hundreds of memes that were the result of someone purposefully making themselves (or some thing) exploitable and asking for user/viewer participation.

How about writing up an entry that focuses mostly on the Green Screen Challenge contest?

It would be labeled as forced, though, yes?

If the March for fear does turn into a meme, because of its origins on the internet, namely reddit, is it possible we can just make Colbert a meme altogether?
