About

60-Year-Old Girl is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a young girl with a short haircut and large glasses. The captions typically contain stereotypes attributed to elderly women combined with the characteristics of a young child.

Origin

On December 10th, 2013, Redditor Beerdrummer submitted a post titled “My wife looked like a 60 year old woman as a child” to the /r/funny[1] subreddit, featuring a photograph of a young girl with a short haircut and large eyeglasses (shown below). In the first 48 hours, the post received over 23,800 up votes and 940 comments.



Spread

Less than an hour after the photograph was posted, Redditor LetsGetRamblin submitted a captioned version of the photo titled “60 Year-Old Girl” to the /r/funny[2] subreddit (shown below, left). On the same day, Redditor otisshredding submitted an image macro to /r/funny[3]joking that the young girl covers her toy furniture in plastic wrap (shown below, right). In the first 48 hours, the posts gained more than 21,800 and 27,800 up votes respectively.



In the coming days, over 300 examples were submitted to the /r/AdviceAnimals[4] subreddit and articles about the series were published on several news sites, including UpRoxx,[6] Mashable,[5]BuzzFeed[7] and E Online.[8]

Identity

On December 11th, Yahoo posted a video interview with Clayton (Redditor Beerdrummer) and Lindsay Prater (shown below), in which the married couple explained how they reacted to the meme’s success.
