(I don't think this has been posted yet?)

As if GB wasn't already secretly the cultural nexus of everything, Drew Scanlon was just on GMA very briefly discussing his gifdom

2017 has been very weird. Happy holidays I guess?

Edit: Drew gave a breakdown of how GMA got in touch and did everything over on twitter (h/t MattyFTM)

Edit II: It's been a while since staff photoshops. I took the liberty of saving you the trouble (sorry if there's a couple of bits, I'm bad with GIMP and i should probably clean my laptop screen). Have at it.

Wow, that is crazy. Wouldn’t have killed them to say the name of the website that actually captured that video, but yeah, pretty amazing.

Was there like a full interview somewhere or something? Did he really just go there to say memes are memes?

The chyron of "Blinking Guy" was really the best thing to happen in 2017.

@jaalmo: I would guess there was more filmed but they cut it short.

I actually had no idea the gif of Drew was that popular. I knew it was big when a bunch of celebrities used it but I had no idea it was the most popular meme of 2017.

@htr10: I mean it might’ve killed them. CBS and ABC are pretty big competitors. Then again, I haven’t looked at the news for a few days, does Disney own CBS yet?

"Drew Scanlon is the white guy". Truly, a quote for the ages.

It occurs to me that, when we inevitably get a cheap CG cash-in meme movie a la The Emoji Movie, it'll almost certainly feature a CG Drew. This both horrifies and delights me.

This is just perfect. That lower-third looks like something out of a comedy movie or a joke Drew would make.

Man, I wished we could see that full interview.

Why even have an entire interview if you edit out 99% and only have one generic sentence that doesn't has anything to do with Drew and his rise to fame. That's a bit a waste of money and time to send a camera guy to his house to set everything up, might as well just skype him.

You're not wrong, but this is also entirely normal.

@ravelle: The news does this all the time. I was at a record store the day I found out about Chris Cornell, looking for a Soundgarden album to buy, when a local news crew comes in and starts filming. I happened to get interviewed for a solid 15 minutes or so about him, what his music means to me, etc. Got mic'd up and everything.

They only used a single sentence. It's always better to have way too much footage than not enough.

Drew's Blinking Black Guy meme is my favourite. Good for him.

I'm surprised mainstream news can say "blinking white guy meme" on public tv. I'm sure they will be sued for not using PC terms like blinking human meme.

I bet the reason why they didn't mention GB is because they didn't want to say the words "Giant Bomb" on air. Or at least they didn't want to extend the segment to give the name of the site context.

This is pretty common on stuff like this. My dad once appeared on local news here and they interviewed him for about 10 minutes and used 30 seconds of him talking.

You can see Cloth Map at Drew's 2nd monitor when it shows him at this computer.
