  • Hello Internet!

  • And Welcome To Behind The Meme!!!

  • Today we have a look at shooting stars!

  • Thank you so very much to all of my amazing viewers who requested a video on this topic.

  • Music memes are always my favorite and this one is extra enjoyable with the way it’s being used

  • so I’m super excited to get into it!

  • Let me know what you would like to see next and maybe I’ll be able to make it happen!

  • You guys wanted it now you have it!

  • Here We GO!!!

  • So what exactly is shooting stars?

  • I’m pretty sure we all know what shooting stars are.

  • Those beautiful things up in the sky at night that make you feel like anything is possible.

  • But the meme version of shooting stars is a little bit differentand when I say a

  • little bit different what I really mean is a whole lot different.

  • That’s because the shooting star that were talking about today

  • isn’t a meteor that’s burning up as it enters earth’s atmosphere.

  • Oh no This shooting stars is the title of a song!

  • A song that goes a little something like this!

  • (Music)

  • The song was originally released in 2008 by a musician duo known as bag raiders

  • who also happen to be aussies …I guess that it doesn’t matter that theyre austrailian I just wanted

  • to do this accent eh?

  • Do I sound austrailian eh? or is this an english accent eh?

  • I’m not sure anymore

  • You know what? it’s a little too much cringy even for me.

  • I’m just gonna shut up now.

  • The song had minor success when it was first released and quietly vanished into their catalog

  • of music as they continued to create new music throughout the years.

  • Well, as weve learned in the past, in the meme world just because something is old doesn’t

  • mean that it can’t be used in new and interesting ways.

  • Now since as early as 2015 the song has been used to accompany videos online in various

  • ways that really didn’t follow a defined pattern.

  • Like this video right here that served as a tribute to our fallen brother

  • Harambe.

  • (MUSIC)

  • Now the meme really started to gain popularity and take shape in early 2017 when a theme started to form.

  • The intro to the song is calm and mellow right before a drop when the song picks up a bit

  • and becomes more energetic.

  • (MUSIC)

  • Well that spot in the song is the spot that is being used to create memes.

  • The format of having a video of somebody jumping from an area and at the same time that the

  • music changes having the background of the video change to stars space or various other

  • locations has began to take shape.

  • One of the examples to really put the meme into the spotlight and give its popularity

  • some momentum was titledfat man does amazing dive

  • Do It!

  • (Music)

  • after seeing that video you can start to see the format that is beginning to take place

  • And after this years super bowl halftime show with lady gaga the meme really started to

  • take off.

  • Because of her introduction it fit perfectly with the meme it’s almost

  • like they were meant to go together.

  • (MUSIC)

  • Now if you ask me why this has all started to happen I have one simple answer for youbecause

  • the internet.

  • There’s not always a reason to why this sort of thing happens, but you know what?

  • I’m not complaining.

  • Good music.

  • Good memes.

  • Sign me up any day of the week!

  • Well except for Wednesdays

  • I have to go see my therapist on Wednesdays!

  • Or Saturdays, On Saturdays I have to go do community service because of that one thing

  • I did with that mannequin last summer.

  • Listen!

  • It was consensual!

  • But any other day of the week besides those two days, I am good!

  • so there you have it shooting stars has gone from a song that is almost 10 years old and

  • has become a fresh meme for a new generation

  • But hey!!!

  • That’s the internet for you and on the internet memes are king!
