1 Song, 4 Minutes and 40 Memes

If you think you’re a meme expert than, boy oh boy, do we have the video for you.  The GAG Quartet has put together a veritable meme-fest—a 4-minute song featuring over 40 memes, from Nyan Cat to Troll Face, Trololo Guy, Numa Numa, Rebecca Black’s Friday and more… [via SocialTimes.com.]

This song reminds me of something the guys from The Big Bang Theory might put together if they weren’t so busy being physicists and aerospace engineers, going to the comic book store, and trying to figure out girls. Oh, and if they were real people. The bassist does remind me a tiny bit of Jim Parsons in character as Sheldon. Speaking of Sheldon, he and Amy Farrah Fowler did try their hand at meme theory study once…

“You’re a vixen, Amy Farrah Fowler!” Probably my favorite line from the show ever.

I personally only got the joke on three or four of the memes. They didn’t do one on Princess Beatrice’s wedding hat, but then again, the guys of the GAG Quartet (which is actually a trio) don’t seem to be the type who would follow memes about hats. If you want more of a how-to guide to understanding the video in all its meme-filled glory, the SocialTimes article points out that there’s a helpful guide and commentary compiled by Reddit users here.

Fun Friday: Senior citizens go online

A recent viral video has been causing a bit of commotion around the Internet for its simplicity: Two senior citizens are trying to figure out how to use their new laptop’s webcam. Little do they know, they’ve already figured it out!

I personally like this video for two reasons:

1) It shows people interacting with technology!

and

2) It shows that even though people of “advanced age” might have some trouble with new technology, they still know how to have some fun!

Fun Friday: All the news that’s fit to fake

Sometimes a news story is so outlandish, it’s hard to believe it’s true. Other times, a faked news story can be so on point, it’s almost hard to believe it’s not true. When it comes to these faked news spots, The Onion does it best.

Here, watch how Disney engineers its stars … from scratch.

 

The answer to the pressing question: What would happen if the Internet crashed?

Fun Friday: April Foolishness

For today’s Fun Friday, which also happens to be April Fool’s Day, we have … jokes caught on video! … Or maybe just some bloopers and funny things.

First, YouTube’s own “Top 5 Viral Pictures of 1911” reinvents some of the site’s most-watched videos.

 

Four-and-a-half minutes of bloopers from TV and people who just were silly enough to videotape their mistakes.

 

It’s a good thing some of these goofy felines have nine lives!
