1. Watch this meme mural materialize in 1 minute!
Memes can be all sorts of things, not just an image on a screen. They can be words or an “idea” that spreads to people far and wide. Memes have flourished on the Internet and their popularity grows more and more as people communicate with each other through these shared and universal ideas.
Here at BuzzFeed, we love memes. But who doesn’t? And what’s a better way to showcase all our favorite memes than with a mural? It’s a perfect reminder of the mashup culture we are creating on our website and beyond. This mural is an homage to memes old and new.
2. Here are some behind the scenes pictures of the mural creation.
The entire mural was painted with BEHR Premium Plus Ultra® Interior Paint.
