Overview.

The Kähler Anniversary Vase (Danish: Kähler Jubilæumsvase) is a limited edition danish designer vase celebrating the 175th anniversary of danish design company Kähler Design[1]. The vase sparked a major controversy in Denmark as the demand greatly outweighed the supply[2]. Inflating the price to up to 4000 Danish Kroner (800$)[3]. When Kähler design opened up for ordering, over 16.000 danes whipped out their wallets [4]. Due to the simple yet distinct design of the vase, it has served as an easy exploitable[5].

Origin.

In August of 2014, Kähler Design released the new limited edition design of their iconic vase design. The Vase was critically acclaimed by consumers and the vase was quickly sold out due to very low supply[6]. Sparking an outrage among mostly middle aged women [7]. These people were mostly mocked for overreacting, leading to the exploitables that now surface the internet under the hashtag #VaseGate.

Spread.

The mock-designs were spread using social media under the name of #VaseGate or #KählerGate[8]. Many Danish news sites also reported the incident [9]. On Septemper 1st Redditor DkForm released an Imgur Album featuering 43 different mock designs[10]. The demand of the vase have been so big that it has even lead to motivate crime [11]

To preempt anyone saying “i havent herd of it +1 dedpool,” you haven’t heard of it because this meme and its context are Danish. If you are not a resident of Denmark than you likely aren’t aware of Danish memes.

oskaraskov has shown quite a bit of good research here, so I’ll say this has potential.
