Internet memes we like

An Internet meme (rhymes with cream) is an idea or concept that spreads across the ‘net like a virus. While all Internet memes go viral not all viral campaigns are Internet memes.

Here’s a list of some of our favourites:

1. All your base are belong to us – This was badly translated from Japanese. It came from the opening scene of the Mega Drive version of Zero Wing. The phrase was turned into a flash animation and it’s long road to success began.

2. I can has cheeseburger – lolcats are  photos of cats with a funny caption in lolspeak. Here is the original lolcat. http://icanhascheeseburger.com

3. You’ve been Rick roll’d.

Rick rolling is a meme that tricks users into clicking a disguised link which turns out to be the Rick Astley vid “Never gonna give you up”. If you fall for the trick, then you’ve been Rick Roll’d.

4. Leeroy Jenkins: Just watch the vid and you’ll understand.
