(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.

I knew Drew was destined for fame. :-)

I'm glad he got a pretty insightful quote in as well,

also Jeff, Rorie, Vinny, Brad make an appearance

I love this dumb site so much

#7 Edited by vinone (320 posts) -

Hmmm, didn't play the audio from Jeff talking about hoe. Weird...

This is pretty awesome though.

#8 Edited by Casepb (593 posts) -

Haha, that's pretty great.

#9 Edited by htr10 (1027 posts) -

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.

#10 Posted by TheHT (15794 posts) -

Hell yeah he did!

#11 Edited by Jaalmo (1744 posts) -

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

#12 Posted by golguin (5469 posts) -

Now everyone is internet famous.

#13 Posted by SethMode (1883 posts) -

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

#14 Posted by forteexe21 (2019 posts) -

Vinny was also there for a sec so its obvious he will be next.

@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.

#17 Posted by Redhotchilimist (2946 posts) -

Hahaaa!

#18 Posted by chango (1056 posts) -

This is so fucking crazy! I don't really know what to say.

#21 Edited by Ravelle (3290 posts) -

I'm just sad and without words GIFS and Memes make it to local news.

#22 Posted by forteexe21 (2019 posts) -

@mattyftm: oh no, he is exposing the business!

#24 Posted by OMGFather (1027 posts) -

I'm fully convinced Drew will be running for president in 2020.

#25 Posted by notnert427 (2158 posts) -

I've been saying "jif" instead of "gif" forever, and it turns out I was right. (self-five)

#26 Posted by BallsLeon (551 posts) -

Giant Bomb? More like Giant Morning... America...

#27 Posted by BacterialBeaver (16 posts) -

@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?

#28 Posted by ShaggE (9211 posts) -

"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.

#30 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (3642 posts) -

The fact Drew didn't win trending gamer is fucking heinous.

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.

#32 Posted by DrStrangepork (401 posts) -

Man, 2017 is god damn weird...

#33 Edited by hans_maulwurf (635 posts) -

This feels like a lost episode from the 2012 goty videos. So weird. I kinda want a Brad dubbed version of this...

#34 Posted by Saethir (377 posts) -

Wow, this years GOTY videos are nuts.

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

#36 Posted by JoRoNimo (349 posts) -

@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.

GMA is national.

Embrace the meme.

More proof that Drew is a god among men

Drew cannot be stopped.

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

#43 Posted by lead_dispencer (534 posts) -

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.

PS. I miss drew. god speed duder!

#44 Posted by Capum15 (6005 posts) -

This has been one of the weirdest fuckin' years...

#45 Posted by Kingpk (1402 posts) -

Diane Sawyer didn't touch his leg so Jeff still has the superior GMA experience.

#46 Posted by Qrowdyy (366 posts) -

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.

#47 Edited by NickFoley (655 posts) -

I'll never stop being happy for Drew.

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.

#49 Posted by Tearhead (2468 posts) -

Did they at least plug Cloth Map?

#50 Posted by forteexe21 (2019 posts) -

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