Pop culture on the web

With millions of pages of information being added to the information superhighway everyday, it’s amazing that two people, or three or even a million have all seen the same thing. And yet it happens. Maybe we hear about these memes on Best Week Ever or The Soup, maybe our friend passes along a link, or maybe we somehow stumbled upon it ourselves. Whatever the case, it’s amazing that amid all the noise and garbage online, I can still mention Diet Coke and Mentos or Rickrolling and people know what I’m talking about.

Here is the video I can’t get enough of right now. I started watching one week ago and I still laugh every time I see it. As a testament to the weird stickiness of random things on the web, over the weekend the video got over 1.5 million hits (I swear it wasn’t all me).

Admittedly, I’m not the hippest when it comes to memes, which is why I found this list helpful if not exhaustive: Greg Rutter’s Definitive List of the 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You’re a Loser or Old or Something.
