I know too many for my own good. Like..about 95% of the Internet People video.

xnarx

I know MORE internet people :O

xnarx

I knew all of them but they need to really update that because there are more internet people now than those!

kissmeimshitfaced

Sadly I know most of the ones in the first vid..

Most of them but then my excuse is I'm studying it for my dissertation, but the word meme really annoys me but there are worse words out there like blogosphere.

I thought the Weezer video was a disappointment, like c'mon this is old news

Yay, the t-shirts on video #3 are inspired by my friend Matt, here in little ol' Santa Barbara, who broke the world record for most t-shirts worn at once! My friend Joe made the video! Sorry, I'm super proud of them. They even got invited to be on Letterman! :D ...It IS old news, tho...

Lordog, it was your friend who did that? thats amazing I've never, ever known anyone who actually knows an internet celebrity.

heyheyitsme

i only know 2 things from the first video...what does that mean, am i internet illiterate?? haha

and one of those things my 14 year old recently showed me or i wouldn't have known it...i'm afraid to ask how many he would know!

helo

lordog ,
Your friend's shirt record is impressive. I kept thinking
what would others do if somehow he started feeling
like he couldn't breathe anymore. I could only think of
having a chainsaw nearby to cut through a bunch of
shirts to relieve some of the pressure off him.

xnarx,
Who are some of the newest Internet Peoples not included?

Were you upset that I posted the Weezer video or that Weezer
chose to use Internet memes that you consider old news?

heyheyitsme,

I bet you read a lot of books :)

Yeah, I had to look it up just to make sure I was spelling meme correctly.
I couldn't think of a better word to use except fad and I just
didn't feel like using it.

Well meme is a short hand for memetics, its actually quite approritate because memetics is the proccess of an idea getting transmitted to large number of people and its hard to explain why these ideas become popular thats what memetics tries to work out.

In the media we (quite arrogantly) call it user generated content.

lyrics to Internet People!
================

It all started with South Park and the Star Wars Kid

Numa Numa did his thing

and the Backdorm Boys lip synched

Napster bad

Winnebago guy mad

Bert is evil

goatse

along came Jib Jab

GI Joe Public Service cartoons

You’re the man now, dog

Spongemonkeys like the moon

Andy Melanokis sang the Superbowl is gay

Ask-a-ninja answered questions

Average Homeboy Denny Blaze

Lonelygirl was not alone

there were House of Cosby clones

Chad Vader, Zefrank

and the Lazy Sunday rap

Kid from Brooklyn, Bubb Rubb

George Lucas in Love

Kramer lost his mind at a comedy club

MySpace the movie

and the Chuck Norris list

We heard a lot of stories

from the Geriatric

I kiss you guy is kissin

Stanley Kubrick audition

Leroy Jenkins doesn’t listen

Homestar runner on a mission

CHORUS:
Internet People!
Internet People!

The grape-stomping lady who fell on her face

Paris Hilton sex tape

and All Your base

Coke and Mentos and the Ok Go’s

The Shining Trailer remixed like it was Cameron Crowe’s

There was a sneezing baby panda and my dick in a box

Rocketboom Amanda and all the Yacht Rocks

There were Snakes On A Plane

Angry German kid’s insane

Otters holding hands and my man Dax Flame

A bride gets pissed and starts cutting her hair

The president gets dissed by Stephen Colbert

Little Superstar has got the moves

Lightning bolts from larping dudes

Kelly shopping for some shoes

Oprah zapped by Tom Cruise

CHORUS:
Internet People!
Internet People!
Internet People, we love you!
Internet People!

White and nerdy by Weird Al

KFed playing Popozao

Washington Washington

embarrassed Ashlee Simpson

boom goes the dynamite

Lily Tomlin in a fight

Peanut Butter Jelly Time

that house with all the Christmas lights

Captain Kirk sings Rocket Man

Evolution of Dance

People Getting Hurt and

Talking to their webcams

CHORUS:
Internet People!
Internet People!
Internet People, who are you?
Internet People!
Internet People!
Internet People! Chocolate Rain!
Internet People, who are you?
Internet People!
I like Turtles
