No, this is an actual forced meme that became a full-fledged meme.
Semen demon is the niwaka of 2014-15.
That's because it's not a meme, it's just an /a/ tradition. The only joke is that it's the same thread posted on /a/ every single day for years and years, how is that supposed to catch on anywhere else?
How is that a forced meme? It's just some reaction images that took off, and it also filled a niche since 4channers were looking for a word to replace "troll" since it had been tainted by normies.
For a while I thought "ruse" was going to be the new troll, but then bait showed up and it looks like it will be here to stay.
Or at least until bait images start getting posted on facebook or wherever.
>How is that a forced meme? It's just some reaction images that took off
Before it took off, newfag, it was pretty much forced into every thread by a samefag.
Hence it being forced. It did become an actual meme though, unlike semen demon.
More like people saved it when they saw it posted, and then reposted it themselves later. I didn't start saving them until the variants started showing up in the summer of 2013, at least those are the oldest images I have in my bait folder, but I'm sure other people jumped on it right away. It's a nicely designed image after all.
It is a shock that semen demon and creatures actually caught on.
>memeposting on shitty subs
Not everything is a conspiracy, just look here:
A lot of those are just popular images that get a lot of mileage. I didn't think anything of the original bait image's popularity because it was after all a very nicely designed image that perfectly did what it was supposed to do.
I think it's a great reason to live.
I also got to see this shitty thing die.
Not all regularly posted images become full-fledged memes, though.
Why are you so defensive about this, anyway? Did you create this epic meme?
This cash and lewd picture shit. Unfortunately I didn't save any examples.
Sometimes I feel like the only guy who still uses "Elevens" instead of "Nips".
>tell another anon that something is a forced meme because it's just one guy spamming it
>claim something else isn't a forced meme just because you don't like one guy spamming it
>if I hate it, it's a forced meme
It's literally one guy infrequently spamming something, it's the definition of a forced meme. And what's more, it's probably already on its way out.
what are you talking about, i always see that picture
So you're taking a shower one night when
SUDDENLY, OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE
Memes that don't spread beyond a particular fanbase
Chopping chimp, SIT DOWN, glasslip, ERABE, pleasing old men for money, deerman, the million jojo-related ones
Chaika broke through somehow
>The same numerical file names anon.
So basically, you're saying the guy posting it had to have saved it from 4chan in the first place. In which case he couldn't have been the image's original creator.
So basically, you just tracked one particular person who liked the image, and claimed it was the creator to fit this conspiracy of forced memes.
Yep. You're a such newfag.
Yes, but consider that GL 15 had over 22000 frames of animation, whereas an important episode in your normal series has around 12000.
I think it still equates to GL's being superior even against a 52 episode animu because even by normal standards it is so infinitely superior.
Samefagged by a handful of anons is still samefagged.
Like My Little Pony was suddenly turned into a meme by a handful of autists.
Still a forced meme.
I bet you're being this defensive because it was you who was samefagging it.
>being this autistic over a forced meme
The creator could've saved the image to make it look like he saved it, then posted it repeatedly thinking that no one would track his samefagged posts.
But people did track them.
Way to move those goalposts champ.
So now the conspiracy has grown from the creator promoting his own image to a small cult of people colluding to make an image popular.
Or maybe individuals just liked it and used it a lot, that seems the more obvious answer, but I'm sure you're right and it was really a conspiracy to force a meme.
Just like MLP, it had nothing to do with people actually liking a show and talking incessantly about it until it got noticed by the broader internet, it was all a plot.
>/a/ will never have the dankest memes like /tv/
How do they do it?
Victory through sheer, autistic determination.
It's also a funny picture.
Samefagged content means it's a forced meme to a certain point. You're deluding yourself if you think it instantly became a meme.
Autism like yours must've helped in forcing it, though.
You realize how ridiculous that sounds right? You're sitting there coming up with this retarded conspiracy about how a guy went to all this trouble to avoid samefag detection over an image, because you refuse to believe it was simply popular and reposted often by people who liked it.
Because they don't give a shit. We take our board very seriously, and as a result catchy memes aren't produced as often.
Even moot liked baneposting.
>Actually, that's exactly what happened.
Except not. The images being tracked by people had 4chan filenames, meaning they were saved from the board and reposted. So your conspiracy would now have to involve the guy saving his own posts and reposting them in an effort to evade samefag detection, yet he never bothers to do this more than once apparently, so maybe he forgot.
The simplest explanation is most often correct, but I guess you prefer your fantasies.
The fact that an individual samefagged it over and over again by the hundreds instead of multiple individuals until the variants came about points otherwise.
Check the file name.
>The images being tracked by people had 4chan filenames, meaning they were saved from the board and reposted.
It's the same four filenames, though rather than multiple filenames had people saved it at different points in time.
So, according to you, the creator firsts posts his image on 4chan, then cunningly saves his own posted image to get an authentic 4chan filename to fool samefag detectors, then never bothers to do this again, apparently forgetting all about his intent of avoiding detection.
>The creator could have saved it then reposted it
Yet he only did it once. Hence why he was able to be tracked. It defeats the purpose of doing it if you only do it once.
A) He had a sudden bout of amnesia and forgot that his images could be tracked if he didn't replace them with new versions
B) it was just somebody who liked the image
>Yet he only did it once.
Not really, if you check the filenames, it was the same filename every time until people made the variants.
Hardly the instant meme you're painting it to be.
>arguing about who has the most authentic unix epoch timestamps
>it was the same filename
Exactly. He only did it once. He didn't re-save the image every time he posted it, he just used the same file he originally saved. In other words: he behaved exactly like a normal anon. He simply reposted an image he liked without bothering to change the filename.
If he were trying to avoid detection, he would have changed the file name, but he just kept he default, which was a 4chan filename, showing that he got the image from 4chan.
Ergo, he's not the creator, nor was he trying to avoid detection, Q.E.D.
What's the best meme that caught on?
>*Teleports behind you*
One autist forcing a meme. That might be the creator himself. Which isn't unnatural, judging by this thread.
>same filename and file used every time until it actually caught on
You mean one samefag, right?
