My Generation Got Our Driver's License at 14, continued Had a Job at 16 and Moved Out at 17 and also known as My Generation vs. Your Generation, refers to an Instagram Reel video posted by rapper Tom MacDonald in late 2022 in which he's criticizing Millennials and Zoomers based their alleged wokeness and respecting LGBTQ+ identities, or in his words, having "89,347 genders." MacDonald also posted the video to his Facebook and Twitter accounts. It was soon reposted both earnestly (by people who agreed with him) and satirically (by people who disagreed with him). Many memes surfaced that used the video on TikTok and Instagram going into 2023, mostly via nonsensical, Zoomer Humor edits that cut to random videos of a SpongeBob car or a dog wearing sunglasses saying "I'm A.I. With The Braids," among others.
On October 11th, 2022, rapper Tom MacDonald posted a Reel to his Instagram account (@hangovergang) that had text overlay reading "My Generation vs. Your Generation." He started the video by saying, "My generation got our driver's license at 14, had a job at 16 and moved out at 17. Your generation is still trying to define what a woman is…" The Reel gained roughly 227,000 likes in seven months (shown below). On the same day, MacDonald also posted the video to Twitter (gaining roughly 20,500 likes) and Facebook (gaining roughly 88,000 reactions).
My generation got our driver's license at 14, had a job at 16 and moved out at 17. Your generation is still trying to define what a woman is and living in your parents' basement until you're 35. My generation grew up on uncensored everything. Your generation censors everything. My generation shot guns, rode dirt bikes and went camping for fun. Your generation stares at your phone all day and dances on the internet in your sister's underwear. My generation knew how to make decisions, important ones. Your generation can't even decide which bathroom to use. My generation wants the truth and the facts no matter how uncomfortable they are. Your generation is so offended that the truth and the facts don't support whatever outlandish bullshit is floating around in your fucking imagination that you started labeling everything you don't agree with as misinformation. My generation has two genders. Your generation has 89,347… and counting. My generation judges people on whether or not they're an asshole. Your generation judges people on race, weight, religion, sex, gender, financial standing, something that they tweeted 20 years ago when they were in grade 8 drunk for the first time. Your generation cancels everything you don't agree with. My generation doesn't give a fuck about the things we don't agree with… Beat it loser! My generation fights for the right to party. Your generation doesn't fight, doesn't like having rights, and doesn't like to party. What the fuck is wrong with you guys? My generation is going to be able to handle the new music video that I'm dropping on Friday. Your generation is going to have a fucking meltdown.
Soon after the video's upload, it generated reactions and responses from various internet users, predominantly from TikTokers who claimed that they were the same age and generation as MacDonald, as in, Millennials, but felt he was inaccurately describing their experience. On December 2nd, 2022, TikToker @m._.tt1 posted one the earliest known memes with the video in which it cut from MacDonald to a dog with sunglasses on and the song "A.I. With The Braids" by The Game. Over the course of five months, the video gained roughly 3.9 million plays and 879,800 likes and is currently the first known posting of the video (shown below).

Going into early 2023, memes using the video continued to surface on TikTok. For instance, on December 7th, 2023, TikToker @quontalious3 uploaded a video that cut to a video of a SpongeBob car, gaining roughly 1.6 million plays and 346,600 likes in five months (shown below, left). On May 11th, 2023, TikToker @zachariah.amoura posted a similar video that featured a Family Guy car, gaining roughly 2.8 million plays and 644,400 likes in five days (shown below, right).
