I’ll admit it, bros, last night I stayed up way too late, and today I’ve got nothing on my brain. But now that I’ve found the most fucking meta thing on the 2015’s Internet, I don’t know where to go from here. The Internet of yesteryear was full of wonderful viral videos, from ‘Charlie the Unicorn’ to ‘Charlie Bit My Finger’, but we’ve moved on. “It’s hard not to find it all a little bitter sweet.”
Now we’re living in an age of GIFs, glorious GIFs. Fantastic GIFs with sexy pop stars dancing to the raunchy lyrics of other sexy pop stars, and neither of them have any idea that any of this is going on. It’s hard not to find it all a little bitter sweet.
With each passing GIF of Taylor Swift dancing to Nicki Minaj lyrics I become more and more enraptured with our 2015 Internet. “Cause I don’t know how it gets better than this. You (Internet) take my hand and drag me head first, fearless.”
Somehow these GIFs just bring out the poetry in me (and T.): “The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name. It’s beautiful, wonderful, don’t you ever change.”
“You sit in class next to red-headed Abigail. And soon enough you’re best friends. Laughing at the other girls who think they’re so cool. We’ll be out of here as soon as we can”
“And I never knew I could feel that much. And that’s the way I loved you. He can’t see the smile I’m faking. And my heart’s not breaking. Cause I’m not feeling anything at all.”
“So come feel this magic I’ve been feeling since I met you. Can’t help it if there’s no one else.”
“Cause the players gonna play, play, play. And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate. Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake. Shake it off. Shake it off.”
Now we’re all inhabiting an Internet where two great poets are colliding, and someone on Imgur is making GIFs of it.
Fifty years from now when my great-grandchildren asked me what the best Internet was, I’m going to tell them 2015, because it won’t get better than this.
