About

Shoshi Games is an exploitable photoshop meme in which screen shots of Girl’s character Shoshanna (played by actress Zosia Mamet) are put on images of athletes competing in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

Origin

The images of Zosia Mamet as Shoshanna Shapiro come from episodes of the HBO comedy Girls. On February 11th, 2014, the Tumblr Shoshigames[1] was created, which creates and posts the images along with comments written in Shoshanna’s voice such as “Curling? I’ve been doing that since my bat mitzvah.” and “Are we going to a Drybar? #helmethair.”

Spread

On February 12th, the Shoshigames Tumblr started the companion Twitter account [2] @ShoshiGames2014. As of February 13th the account has over 300 followers. The Huffington Post,[3] Mashable,[4] and New York Magazine[5] also covered the meme on February 12th.
