Video the reaction came from if people are interested. Not found by me but wanted to pass it along.
@milkman: And then Terrell replied to Alex
EDIT: Man, this is kind of crazy.
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.
In regards to Jeff, I remember doing this one a long while back. It didn't hit meme levels but it got around a bit.
If Ryan were still alive, this would have killed Ryan. He would have laughed himself to death.
I remember the gang being really pumped about Dan Ryckert's bone-in vs. boneless tweet becoming an international topic for a day. Weird to look back at that now that Ryckert has an established history with the site.
Drew now owns the first Google search results page of "guy blinking."
Man, that's a whole lot of articles about a gif. I clicked one at random and found this:
The interesting thing about this meme's positioning on the viral internet is that it's completely mainstream and Twitter-based. Unlike a lot of memes that start on Twitter (especially in the Black Twittersphere) and end up co-opted by Reddit and 9gag, "Dank meme" subreddits and meme economy investors don't seem interested in this one at all. [...] Blinking White Guy might be the first big Twitter trend of the year to go completely ignored by people who consider themselves serious about memes.
WE GOIN GLOBAL BOYS
I'm from outside of the US and can confirm this. One of the major newspapers from my country (Portugal) posted an article about the gif on their website and facebook page.
Because I am portuguese as well, I have to ask, qual foi o jornal?
