About

Dream Machine Luma AI Extended Memes refers to Luma AI's AI-powered video generation tool that allows users to extend videos and turn images, like memes, into longer clips. The tool went viral on X / Twitter in mid-June 2024 after X user @hey_madni posted a viral thread turning popular memes into videos. Other viral extended Vines created using Luma AI included a version of the 9+10=21 meme, which shows a shadowy figure appearing behind the boy saying 21.

Origin

Luma Labs released their AI-powered video-generating software on June 12th, 2024, posting a video to their official YouTube[1] channel on the same day and gathering over 40,000 views in four days (seen below). The software can be accessed on Luma Lab's own website, however, users are limited to generating 10 videos a day.[10]



On June 15th, 2024, X[2] user @hey_madni posted a thread using Luma AI's Dream Machine software to convert popular still-image memes into videos, including Distracted Boyfriend, Disaster Girl and Captain Picard's Facepalm.


Spread

Various internet users reacted to @hey_madni's thread on June 15th, 2024, with X[4] user @Hestmord criticizing the Distracted Boyfriend video and @diet_pepis[3] saying that Luma AI turns one of the women in the original meme into a young girl. The posts gathered over 80,000 and 100,000 likes in two days (seen below).

A lot of these are fucking hideous, and the changes they make to the meaning of the memes or the background sources of them are insane. I saw someone post the picard facepalm and it just invented a whole new person.

Just awful for actual historic preservation and understanding and ugly as fuck
