Despacito 2 refers to a series of images and videos that revolve around a sequel to the song Despacito. The meme generally takes the form of a "breaking news" parody, in which a cultural or historical figure of authority is either confirming the release or delay of the song.
On December 12th, 2017, HUGELOL user WasteofBreath published an image of a group of NASA engineers cheering. Additionally, the image features a mock chyron that reads "Despacito 2 Confirmed by NASA. 'Despacito will receive a sequel' states former administrator of NASA.'" The post (shown below) received more than 50 points.
On March 27th, 2018, YouTuber LDG_Ballistic edited the NASA image into the video "Nasa Confirmed despacito 2." In the video, streamer Etika is watching the news when the NASA image appears on screen. The streamer cheers with excitement and the song "Despacito" plays on the soundtrack. The post (shown below, left) received more than 95,000 views in two months.
The phrase also became a popular thread title on Reddit. On April 30th, 2018, Redditor B1ng0_B0ng0 titled a mock tweet by United States President Donald Trump "despacito 2 confirmed by nasa." The post (shown below, right) received more than 16,000 points (94% upvoted) and 85 comments.
