About the Meme Generator
The meme is a child of the internet. A meme is a running gag who spreads to the world eiher rather fast or somewhat slower. This is happening locally and globally. But not every picture or video is a meme just because you´re seeing it everyday in your newsfeed or inbox. Often they get known through the internet and getting copied or changed in an open source manner. This is happening without request. This is what makes a meme a meme. They are coming again and again. They became a mass phenomenon. They change the way we communicate with each other. They are often created with a Meme Generator, just like ours, so normal users can create them with ease.
How did the meme became a mass phenomenon ?
25 years ago, singer and songwriter Rick Astley sang his wonderful hit “never gonna give you up”. It was number one in more than 20 countries. Normally it would´ve become a one hit wonder just like many other songs. It was till 7 years a user on chan.org posted a trailer for the highly anticipated game GTA IV. But users get trolled and when they clicked on the link, they were redirected to a youtube video of “never gonna give you up”. The so called “rickrolling” was born and it spread out like fire. Just one year later the video was clicked more than 18 million times. The song became an internet phenomenon and so did the meme.
