In the most recent podcasts, both Drew and Jeff mentioned being used as a meme. Can anyone provide these pictures? Thanks!
Haven't listened to the podcast, but off the top of my head, this is an image of Jeff that I've seen used as a meme:
I've generally seen it used as a "I've been in [video game/piece of software] for too long" or something similar to indicate spending hours on the computer and completely losing track of time. Not necessarily VR. I've seen it here and there, but for the life of me I can't find many instances of it through Google searches, so I suspect it must have some nickname I don't know and it's likely completely dissociated from Jeff's name.
No idea with Drew, I've only seen Drew memes on this site, or threads about this site. He works best in gif form.
Haha thanks guys. The Drew one is so random though. Like, how did something as subtle as that become a meme? I'm used to memes being something ridiculous and out there (like the Jeff one). Maybe it's just because Drew is such a magnificent man.
Drew's deadpan stares/blinks (often in response to Dan) are the stuff of legend. It's not a comedic act he could take on the road, but his ability to be the straight man is impeccable.
I dunno, here's something I treasured by someone on the site years ago after one of the early Halo streams with Alexis.
Aww thank you <3.
As to the question, Jeff's VR face got propagated by both Fobwashed on Twitter, and it was the thumbnail of a Crowbcat video (that got taken off because copyright issues with CBSi maybe?). Anyway Crowbcat is seemingly pretty well known/shared around the likes of GAF and Twitter.
Not sure how Drew's "meme face" entered the mainstream, but I for one am glad the subtleties of that beautiful man are finally being recognized.
the Drew meme is serious. this one has over 50k retweets.
This was the first tweet of that Drew meme that I'm aware of. I like it a lot.
This one has 76K retweets and 143K faves!
