Memetics 101

10 Jul

Dangerous moments in presentations

There is nothing quite as unexpected as being handed something onstage that is outsize.

(I was asked to hold an entire stereo system once.)

Kylie Minogue was in all likelihood handed this giant teddy bear and gamely cooperated.

It apparently happened in August 2010.

The picture first came to me as an email parodying the Mastercard Priceless campaign.

She looked familiar, (I’m not a fan) so I dropped the image into the astounding Google Image Search, which now accepts an image as a search entry.

Which led me to the origin of the photo.

So the original photo became a meme, it rides the net on another meme, and it got banned from Facebook, one of the most powerful meme creators on our planet today.
