@saiya-jin This will definitely be confirmed but not until the entry is filled out more. Needs more research.
How do I use Superpoke?
Odd, I’m now getting 57k results on a different network. As an image based submission, I, too, don’t see strong enough evidence in support of this, especially since much of the original artwork seems to have been drawn by the same hand.
@captainblubber I am sad to suggest that the Kids in the Hall ‘men having sex with cars’ sketch is only tangentially related to ‘dragons having sex with cars’. There are quite a few man + sex + “with car” stories irl:
Man admits to having sex with 1000 cars
Mechanic: I have sex with cars
Man accused of sex act with car
Sex with car
Guide to Sex with Cars (for males)
The ‘Laugh Out Loud Cats’ iz not real http://www.amazon.com/Laugh-Out-Loud-Cats-Sell-Out/dp/0810995719
(Read the description.)
I see less than 600 results for http://www.google.com/search?q=%22dragons+having+sex+with+cars%22
and less than 1k for http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=“dragons+having+sex+with+cars”
That being said, massive search results alone do not make the meme. It’s more like taking someone’s temperature to confirm a fever.
The link set is pretty diverse so it’s had an interesting spread beyond its point of origin. I can’t wait to see the research on this one.
Needs way more research. Also, the YouTube Poop seemed to be an aftershock of the original video, but not the primary focus of activity around this meme.
This is a good entry. Great research and good presentation. I have renamed it to ‘Movie Trailer Remix/Recut Movie Trailers’ to better reflect its more common name.
There is a chance that ‘Movie Trailer Remix’ might also refer to work like Eclectic Method’s mashups…
…but activity in that space (sharing, linking) seems very low. But because of the possible confusion (the mashups of Eclectic Method and Emergency Broadcast Network generated a lot more search volume than it does now), I’ve retitled this entry ‘Recut Movie Trailers/Movie Trailer Remix’ with a nod to ‘Misleading Trailers’ in the intro.
Uploaded an image to their profile.
Outtakes from our PBJT episode.
Might be nice to link this to Blingee, early Geocities + MySpace code, etc.
I vote for meme -- it was recontextualized on the internet and iterated. Need to think more about the forced aspect, though.
@sinofsociety: correction made. thx.
Created a meme entry for Steve Ballmer Monkey Dance.
Upgrading Cupcake Dog from ‘Deadpool’ to ‘Researching’. Although it had a short life, Cupcake Dog is at least ‘Notable’ for it’s viral and iterative qualities. Needs more research.
We need to archive this and attach it to Advice Dog somehow without deleting the info. The thread may prove to be a significant moment if it ends up leading to a new variant later.
