What if they deliberately told us not to meme it knowing full well that the internet would thus serving as free advertisement for the video? I for one would have never seen it had people not been memeing the $#!t out of it. Imo I think the internet got played.
@Malekorath, I won’t watch it but I will meme it
@Malekorath, it’s funny cause the article is just saying if you meme this is America then you are part of the problem that the song is all about (ignoring issues with funny dances and meaningless distractions). To me this means the people that meme out of spite of the article are ironically proving it correct.
@Bermy Juice, I also thinking that meming the video means you inherently understand the message because the meme makes sense in the context of the video. Also, memes are a great way to get more people to see the video
Just look up "This is Teostra".
If Donald Glover doesn’t take the lead on this I’ll be disappointed
Is the song trying to convey mêmes are a problem? I thought it was about the violence and distrust and gangs in America. I think they just said don't même this knowing full well people would même it out of stubbornness to get free advertisement. Nothing deeper, It seems atleast to me.
To think that the dorks from parks & rec and community would become the most commercially popular.
You never want to do something more than when you're told not to
Vice knew what they were provoking. 100% knew what they were doing with that post.
I'm not a huge fan of Childish Gambino, but the song is actually pretty good.
The music video is really cool though, I enjoyed it.
