Earlier this week, Evil Kermit the Frog burst onto the meme scene to convince you to make terrible decisions and ignore your better judgment. It was a good meme which felt very apropos of the current political climate and the latest in a long-standing tradition of memes starring everybody’s favorite green Muppet. And now, some evil genius has upped the stakes and rocketed the meme into the 21st century with a little help from Facebook’s 360-degree-photo technology.
Is this the first 360-degree meme? I’m going to answer that with a hard “maybe.” In the past, people have converted old viral YouTube classics into 360-degree videos, but this is the first pure meme I’ve seen as a totally immersive image. Welcome to the future. How lucky we are to be alive right now.
