The Huffington Post approached a serious issue and identified the most memorable memes of the 2010s.
Tops of the best gadgets and the most popular music videos are, of course, good, but you must admit, memes have penetrated our social life so much that without them it is difficult to imagine the modern world. So let's indulge in a little nostalgia and remember the best memes of this decade.
2010 – the sad Keanu Reeves; Forever alone
Splash News photographer captures a lonely Keanu Reeves sitting on a bench in a park and having a sandwich lunch. After the picture got into the network, they didn’t try to plant someone whom Kean didn’t try to plant.
Another popular meme was forever alone, which could very clearly show that someone is alone.
2011 – Willy Wonka
Come on, tell me that you have never posted a meme with Willy Wonka. The character from the 1971 musical “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” became mega-popular in 2011, and still gifs with him can often be found on social networks.
2012 – Grumpy Cat
Perhaps the most popular cat of this decade is the ever-angry Grumpy Cat. A very versatile meme that clearly shows your emotions about an event.
2013 – dogs; Harlem shake
The angry cat was replaced by dogs and the doge meme. One of the essential elements of pictures should be admiration phrases written in Comic Sans font.
Harlem Shake viral flashmob should also be noted. This song became a hit and many recorded 30-second clips for it, where a crowd of people comes off.
2014 – Kim Kardashian; Kermit the frog
In 2014, Kim Kardashian blew up the Internet by posting her photo for Paper Magazine, where she pours champagne into a glass in a very interesting way.
After that, the phrase “Breaking the internet” and the photo itself, which many tried to repeat, became popular. For example, the hockey mascot Gritty.
Another meme was Kermit the Frog, who says that "it's none of his business."
2015 – dress color
A lot of controversy in 2015 caused the color of the dress in the photo. Due to the optical illusion, it seems to one that it is blue-black (real color), to the other that it is white and gold. He argued almost the entire Internet, including celebrities, politicians and other famous people.
2016 – sad Pepe
Jabber Pepe was first painted by artist Matt Fury back in 2005 for the Boy’s Club comics. In 2014, Pepe often began to appear on the network and users drew it with various emotions, most often sad. But the real boom in popularity was caused by the use of Pepe in the presidential campaign of Donald Trump in 2016.
2017 – a blinking guy; unfaithful guy
A blinking guy on one of the streams has become a very popular meme. With it you can easily explain your reaction in correspondence.
Well, a stock photo in which a guy goes with a girl and is distracted by another girl has become a hit of recent years. On the network you can find hundreds of variations of this meme and even its female version.
2018 – American chopper
One of the 2009 episodes of Discovery’s popular American Chopper show, in which father and son Paul Taitul Sr. and Paul Taitul Jr. work on creating motorcycles, has become the source of many jokes. The quarrel between father and son, which resulted in the dismissal of Teytul Jr., turned into a real comic book-meme.
2019 – Baby Yoda
This meme is only a month old, but it has already become one of the most popular memes of the decade. Baby Yoda, who appeared in the TV series Mandalorets, is great for any situation.
