Guy's Persistent Comments On 'Hottest Top 100' Turn Him Into A Meme
| Last updated
In this day and age of viral fame, it's easy to get your name in lights - albeit briefly.
The Millennials (or meme-ennials) are constantly striving for the one thing that will make them stand out from the pack and get them loads of likes, followers and, in turn, a brief moment of happiness. That's how it works, right?!
Anyway, Ben Lawson found his calling yesterday when he began commenting on every single post Triple J put up on their Facebook page. They were doing a countdown of the 'Hottest' 100 songs of 2016.
It was just five words. Five simple words that changed the course of history forever.
"Ya joking shoulda been higher". It's great isn't it, I can see it on t-shirts, mugs, protest signs - the lot. It's simple, yet effective.
The beauty of this is in its simplicity because it's so ambiguous it was applicable to every single post. It could work on them all. So that's exactly what Ben did, he wrote it underneath all of them. GENIUS.
It got to the point where people were waiting with baited breath for Ben's latest post.
He became a meme. Everyone was making memes out of his and his catchphrase.
This was his calling in life. It's beautiful to behold.
But wait. What was going to happen when they got to number one? He can't possibly comment 'ya joking, shoulda been higher' on the highest song featured?!
The prospect of Ben's viral kingdom tumbling at the final hurdle sent the Internet into panic mode. Millennials began screaming into their smartphones on the streets, spouting dead memes about Harambe and asking random people 'why you always lying?!' in a desperate attempt to keep memes alive.
Don't worry, lads. Ben came through.
Bravo, Ben. You were the hero we didn't ask for, but are sort of glad came along.
