Here’s A Look at the Best Memes Trends That Have Ruled the Internet In 2016
If you aren’t one of those who is still stuck at laughing at Twitter screenshots on Facebook, you’ve definitely been a part of the ever-evolving meme culture. Here are a few of the best meme trends that made 2016 a little less sucky.
1) Harambe: He took a shot for us and we took multiple shots at making memes to etch his place in history. A gorilla named Harambe was shot in Cincinnati zoo when a reckless parent’s mistake led to their kid entering his enclosure.
2) This was the year of Donald Trump: That guy defied all odds and managed to pull off a massive upset in the Presidential Elections of the United States. This victory wasn’t as surprising as the fact that a sad cartoon frog had become so synonymous with the Trump Campaign that Hillary Clinton decided to slander this meme on her official website.
3) Spongebomb: One fine day, the primitive Spongebob memes were all over our newsfeed. It’s basically a meme used to represent how we panic under certain situations.
4) Tiger Shroff: This boy wonder can do anything and that includes doing a split that makes him the direct Indian contemporary to Jean-Claude Van Damme.
5) Baba Ramdev: The India Today newsweekly showed Ramdev in a yoga posture that would best be described as bending over and facing the camera with his head upside down and between his legs. That sounds so weird, but the picture looks even weirder.
6) Chetan Bhagat: To promote his new book, he asked his ‘fans’ to take a photograph of his book against beautiful backdrops. The internet did what it did best and this meme trend was truly hilarious.
7) Bobby Deol: India needed a hero and what we got was so much more – Bobby Deol. The Soldier star probably had the best performance of his life as countless memes about him flooded the meme-sphere.
8) Arthur’s Fist: For those moments that really push our buttons – and 2016 had plenty of them – there’s no better meme than Arthur’s clenched fist. It was used to show our reluctance or anger at a sad thing.
9) Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hai: This meme in India campaign was great for the short while it lived, and then like most other memes, slipped into the annals of obscurity.
10) Evil Kermit: This meme was used to represent the evil thoughts we have when something very casual happens in the real world.
