With this meme, watch how it continues to spread even now. The Zombies will likely never understand they have been duped as they proudly confirm the antique quality and authenticity of the craze, further saturating the trails of truth, making meme research hard.

The idea of the ‘internet craze’ has outlived its usefulness. The half-life from internet meme to morning talk show segment is zero. It’s time for journalists to retire this dumb pop cultural crutch. Every goddamn thing that happens on the internet is not an internet craze.
