Google Down Memes

2020 has been a weird year ~ masks, sanitizers, quarantine and lockdown have just been some of the never-imagined-before things that this year brought along and also the Google Down Memes that went viral.

And just when we all thought this shit show was about to end, Google experienced an outage and netizens were quick to term it as the season finale of 2020!

In an unprecedented event when everyone was deep into Monday blues, Google and its other services including YouTube, Gmail, Drive, Docs, Maps and more stopped working for a short period of time in the evening hours of 14th December, 2020.

Google went down and Twitter got to work almost instantaneously!

Twitter soon took it into its own hands to spread the word about “Google Down”!

Hashtags like #GoogleDown, #YouTubeDown, #GmailDown dominated social media.

While many apps experience outages now and then, Google outage was a super rare incident which affected millions of people.

As soon as Twitterati realized that even Google gave up on a Monday, memers were quick to enliven the entire social media space with memes!

We pray for the interns at Google!

What yaar 2020?

Google: Thak gaya hu vro.

Oh Jio dhan dhana dhan…

O chacha…

Chintu beta, badmaashi nahi.

All in all, netizens had a fun evening with memes pouring in continuously.

Even though Google solved the matter super quickly, it couldn’t beat the speed of the memes!

That’s the real power of memes – they’re quick, funny and super relatable!

Diljit’s War of Words with Kangana erupts with Hilarious MEMES!

Kangana Ranaut has often found herself to be amidst some sort of controversy because of her bold take on the social issues at large. This pandemic year has been a little extra turbulent for her, it seems.

The ‘Panga’ actress has been making many bold political statements for the last few months, especially after the unfortunate incident of BMC breaking down her office. 

Her statements however seem to have hit the wrong note among the masses. Last week, something similar happened once again.

Amidst the ongoing Farmers’ Protest, Ranaut shared a tweet where she misidentified an elderly Sikh woman named Mahinder Kaur as the Shaheen Bagh activist Bilkis Bano. 

Furthermore, she alleged that Bilkis was available at protests for Rs. 100. This definitely did not go well with the netizens.

Among the many who criticized her for the fake and derogatory tweet was singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh, who has been actively supporting the Farmers’ Protest in Delhi. 

And this just started a WAR!

Dosanjh shared a BBC India clip where Mahinder Kaur is seen sharing her views on the controversial farm bills that have triggered the ongoing protests. Diljit urged Kangana to not be swayed by the fake news.

Ranaut’s tweet was deleted under fake news. But this did not stop Kangana, as she kept defending her stand against the ongoing protests. Kangana replied to Diljit’s tweet by calling him, “Karan Johar ka Paltu”……

Well… Ummm…

Diljit set Twitter on FIRE with back to back tweets where he, quite frankly, finished Kangana, giving her a taste of her own medicine. Diljit’s tweets, written in Punjabi, were wildly applauded by the netizens, who bowed down to Dosanjh’s fearlessness…

Many celebrities including Tapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker, Mika Singh and Richa Chadda too praised Diljit for speaking up so sharply.

Well, as you’ve already guessed by now, the desi netizens celebrated Diljit’s act with the very best of memes. The verbal war just got more interesting…

The new word in the dictionary

Same

Koi Na, Google Translate hai na?

Sab khatam ab

Yeh Google Translate ka kamaal hai…

KJo jaye toh kaha jaye?

Jiska Meme game strong hai, wohi Sikander hai…

Netizens can create a meme fest with literally anything under the sun. These memes are in fact a Diamond in the Rough. The utility of these memes is endless…

The Key to Youth Marketing: MEMES!

Marketing is not a recent concept, it is something prevailing ever since people had things to sell. But, you can’t deny the fact that modes of marketing have changed along with time. This article puts light on one the latest mode, and the key to Youth Marketing: MEMES!

A major transformation has been seen in marketing – from newspaper advertisement to witty brand wars on Twitter, we’ve come a long way!

It’s understood that any business can be valueless without good marketing.

Fair enough! Let’s first understand what marketing is and how it is evolving with technology. 

How marketing changed with time?

If we scratch out the meaning from the dictionary, marketing is the activity of showing and advertising a company’s products in the best possible way.

Remember the time when we used to recite Jingles we saw on television? We have come a long way from Jingles such as The Taste of India by Amul, Googly Woogly Woosh by Ponds, Washing powder by Nirma and many more to not watching ads on TV anymore.

But why did we forget those jingles in the first place?  

Well, because millennials started low-key hating ads.

What do millennials want?

Arey! Bhai chahte kya ho? What do millennials expect from Brands today? 

Well, let us enlighten you!

Millennials want to communicate in real time while adapting the latest technology. They also expect brands to be transparent and provide authentic content as it helps them to connect.

The relevance of communicating through visuals is increasing rapidly.

But wait, before you dive deep into visual ads, you should know what millennials do NOT want:

FORCED ADVERTISEMENTS.

Yes, that’s right, they’re tired of rolling their eyes everytime they see a brand pushing for conversions through forced, boring advertisements.

Millennials everytime a brand interrupts their meme-scrolling time:

Confused about how to proceed with marketing then?

It’s super simple. Just do what millennials do and make them feel connected!

Yes my friends, the key to youth marketing is meme marketing!  

Being one of the most powerful tools to influence people, memes are funny, relatable and most importantly – don’t look forced!

Millennials love memes, and brands love millennials, so basically – brands should start loving memes!

So what are you waiting for?

Hop onto the meme marketing wagon and give your brand a meme-makeover!

Tooter, the Desi Twitter sparks MEMES!

Heard about the Vocal for Local drive yet? Heard about India becoming Aatmanirbhar yet?

Well, as part of this “Swadeshi Andolan”, some Indians have gone as far as creating a desi version of Twitter, called Tooter!

And while the website went active around July, it caught the attention of netizens only recently.

Modelled after Twitter and hosting a similar theme of blue and white, Tooter is proudly boasting of being another feather in the ‘Made in India’ cap!

With a Conch Shell icon (read: shank), Tooter is aiming to become the desi alternative to the American micro-blogging giant, Twitter.

This Desi Twitter has some prominent personalities as its members: PM Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Smriti Irani, Virat Kohli and Abhishek Bachchan among others.

It also claims to support free speech and will let users exercise their right to express their opinions freely.

What’s more, like posts on Twitter are called Tweets, posts on Tooter are called Toots!

And if all this wasn’t enough, here’s what the About Page of Tooter states:

The About page for Tooter has this to say: “We believe that India should have a Swadeshi social network. Without one we are just a digital colony of the American Twitter India Company, no different than what we were under the British East India Company. Tooter is our Swadeshi Andolan 2.0. Join us in this Andolan. Join us!”

With Tooter coming into the limelight, memers went berserk with Memes!

Enter: Memes.

Tauba tauba, saara mood kharab kar diya.

My Eyes, My Eyes!

Claims are Disputed but Memes are not!

You might have thought of rejecting the statements which are against your thoughts, whether these are about your emotions or choices. But did you ever imagine this could be done? 

Hmm….but the question is, HOW? Don’t worry about the ‘How’ till we have our source of humor, Donald Trump.

Lately, the microblogging site was flooded with hilarious memes which were disputing the claims. 

Trump was roasted for his Tweet “I won the Election” a week after Joe Biden was declared the President of the U.S. Twitter called this election differently and marked Trump’s  statement disputed. 

LoL…I told you, Trump can be the source of humor.

Now what? As usual, netizens got their new meme trend while using this caution to share their hilarious versions of “disputed claims” along with the caption “This claim is disputed by official sources”.

Well, trust me everything is going to be okay… Isn’t it so weird the way we console people without knowing the future events? 

Well, the future is obviously uncertain and that is why “This Claim is Disputed”.

Netizens won’t worry if everything is not going to be okay. Do you know why? 

Because, they have their OTTs to make them feel okay sometimes. Well, are you the one who wishes to watch one episode a day but ends up watching the whole season? If yes, then you literally have an escape.

2 minute mein Maggi bane ya naa bane, Kabir ko Naina se pyaar zarur ho jayega (B’wood fans unite)

It’s been long since we attended school/college. But what comes to your mind first when you hear the word “School or College”? 

For me, it’s exams and the promise I make to myself every sem.

Remember, the friend who says “Reaching in 5 minutes” and sees us after 1 hour. Haha.

When it comes to memes and netizens altogether, brands are always two steps ahead in giving their amusing take on the latest trends. 

Netizens love memes, memes love netizens and brands love netizens too, ultimately brands love memes.

Claims might be disputed, but memes can never be!

Spreading laughter, joy and brand messages – you name it and memes can do it!

Biden trumps Trump, Netizens celebrate with MEMES!

Joe Biden is the new President of America! America is celebrating, and so is the world! The Presidential Election was a tough call, as the result was largely dependent on the swinging states. 

However, Biden went on to win in the major swinging states which eventually sealed the victory. The victory brought about a general wave of joy and happiness in America, which resonated throughout the world.

Indians were thodaaa sa jyada happy because Kamala Harris has also won the election, and is now America’s Vice-President.

With this win, Kamala Harris became the first woman, and the first black and Asian American, to be vice-president-elect.

But, problems never cease to exist.

Donald Trump is unwilling to accept the results of the election. He started questioning the authenticity of the ballot counting right from the first day!

Donald Trump has always been a favourite among memers. With his latest statements, he is back on the trending list after his loss…

Trump took to Twitter soon after the final results of the elections to declare that he has won the election.

Trump has also alleged many states of voter fraud and argued that Biden was trying to misuse his power. However, he has failed to provide any evidence confirming his statements…

Just as you may have already expected, netizens treated us with some hilarious memes. The memes mostly centered around Donald Trump’s statements and his sad exit from the White House…

Kya palti mara re baba!

Paisa Wasool!

Don’t be scared

The desi memers also took their chance at roasting the “ex-President” on his defeat!

Sab tod denge!

Perfect!

Bohut Maza Aaya

Swiggy took a dig at Donald Trump’s tweet as well!

But honestly man, Thank you Donald Trump for the memes!

Memes have been a significant part of the US Presidential Elections. The rise in memes has been highly influential. Supporters of both the parties have used memes to run campaigns and promote their respective candidates. 

Memes have now become the face of digital marketing. No campaign is complete without the inclusion of memes.

Roachman Begins – A Travis Scott Meme Story!

Even for Indians, Halloween is a time for some really spooky parties and costumes. The one day of the year where the entire world just jumps into getting their most horrific look ready!

Just like the Met Gala, Halloween is also a time, when we see our favorite celebrities dressing up in unique dresses that we all go gaga about…

Remember Kevin Hart dressing up as his buddy Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson?

We be like…….

Just as most celebs are praised for their creative costume choices, there are some who don’t enjoy a Happy Halloween as well…

Rapper Travis Scott fell into the abyss of trolls with his Halloween costume. The “Sicko Mode” rapper chose to dress up as Batman this year.

Buuuuttt…. Ummm…

Unfortunately, yes.

The costume resembled the Batman Returns (1992) costume that Michael Keaton had popularized. However, Travis tried to have his own take on the costume by changing the color to brown, instead of black. Brown happens to be Travis Scott’s signature color!

Although Travis posted a series of clicks of him getting suited with the costume, the fans were definitely not very pleased with it.

Following this, dank memers stormed the internet and heavily trolled Travis for his new variation to the iconic Batman costume. 

Netizens showed no mercy for the rapper with their dank memes. Some started referring to him as a cockroach!

Yaar, dil se bura lagta hai.

The meal looks fab though

Fans created such hilarious memes that we couldn’t stop ROFL!!!

*drumrolls*

UNLEASH THE ROACH MEMES…

The last one is our favourite!

Picture ke saath toh match hi nahi huwa yeh!

Which is Which?

Not Accepted!

Death

The trolling didn’t go down well with Travis Scott… Just a day after Halloween, Travis Scott deactivated his account on Instagram. This led the fans to criticize the memers on being disrespectful.

However, the reason for him leaving Instagram is not quite clear. Some are of the opinion that he has left Instagram due to the continuous trolling, while others say that he is just taking a break from Instagram to work on his upcoming album!

The Roach memes have taken the Internet by a storm. This has just been another way of showing us how impactful memes are in our life! 

Want to know the other ways in which memes can create a stir?
