Commented on Why So Serious?

@Jostin Asuncion

I understand what you’re saying in that its popularity came from it being the tagline.

But at the same time, you have to look at This Is Sparta. It spiked in March when the movie came out. But it was referenced in almost every trailer before the movie came out, without the help of the internet. And yet it’s still arguably the biggest meme of that year. I think if “This is Sparta” can qualify as an internet meme, then so can this.

That’s why I included the section on how it was marketed before the film came out, via the Internet. You could say the movie is what really helped it to spread, but I believe the internet played a big part.
