Hey! Fuck you

Dear god that was awful.
I fucking hate when people try to commercialize memes, because they commercialize the most boring, unfunny, stale and overused memes on the planet. I actually cringed when I saw Reddit's icon in that video.

their desired effect is actually to look cool. "hey guys, i am cool because i know a thing offline that is everywhere on facebook. look at my shirt it shows how cool i am."

Half of the people pointing at this guy are saying "Oh god look,he wears a t shirt with the troll face on it".The other half are calling this guy either a loser or an attention whore

the effect of internet users being annoyed is purely ironic and so complex the guy wearing the shirt probably doesn't even know such irony existed thus he is a moron and his effect is null and void.

That guy tries hard to show he's an active internet user,although he's probably not.Active internet users are usually annoyed by this.That makes him a moron.

Not our precious memes!!!!!!!!

Who gives a shit, they were stupid before they're stupid now, don't see what difference it makes if people think they're funny offline or on.

Bringing memes to reality is like trying to make a taco shell out of Doritos. It just doesn't work.

There are a few facets of internet culture which will never be accepted by the offline world.

-Shock sites

-Dolan (and similar effed up MS paint things)

-Anything that hasn't been made after 2011

I want to move to the moon or something and have moon memes that none of you earthlings will understand and therefore mean they won't be overused all to hell.

Why do some people think that the internet =/= the real world ? Slightly separate or DIFFERENT maybe, but they both are definitely apart of the real functioning world

I think meme shirts are so clever and funny.
I wear a "cool story bro" hoodie and a nyan cat shirt to show my originality :D

Girls think it's cute and funny while it gives me props to my fellow sideways hat/pants on the ground friends! :3

I love being a wigger and peeking in high school. <3

I also suck dicks.

but what about the futurama fry meme being on adult swim. they own the rights to broadcast futurama and shit so i dont see how thats so bad. i can see how a lot off other memes being pushed into the mainstream could be used in ways that are annoying as fuck but if someone who owns the show is using a character in the commercial in the style of a meme thats not as bad because dont they have the right to use a joke people are making about their show

Yeah I agree with this OP.

I literally can't remember what it felt like to look at the troll face and think of how neat it was.

or maybe I was just a faggot back when I liked troll face, I'm not sure

I liked some memes, others I just dont fuckin understand. I can see how some people would hate how memes have become all popular and mainsteam and shit but since most people I know who used them were /b/ tards, I dont really care as I hate most people there.

Did you have a stroke? o.o'

In all seriousness: Memes are funny if used correctly. Most of the time, that doesn't happen; even on the internet.

For the student board elections in my school this year every single person running for it had advertisements for themselves as a meme. Not to mention, every single one of them wasn't faithful to the source material, and just completely went off the guidelines for said meme.

Fucking useless cunts.
