What are your opinions on "normie memes"?

By normie memes I mean memes that became greatly popular with pretty much anyone and start to become everywhere on the internet, especially on sites like twitter (examples would be harambe, bottle flipping, dabbing, pokemon go, damn daniel)
I think almost all of them are okay. The only one I don't really like is the damn daniel one

    Memes are either stupid, become stupid or are simply over-used... (I am no exception to that at times, I'm aware of it, so no need to think of me as a hypocrite.)
    In the end I would be fine if memes would just go extinct, not only the "normie memes" but every meme.

    It kinda depends on the meme, though. Stuff like bottle flipping, in my opinion, is stupid, while things like We Are Number One I feel are fine.

    I honestly have no idea why people think dabbing is cool. It looks stupid in my opinion.

    I like them if they are funny, which means only the gifs and image macros and not the setting yourself on fire type of meme.

    Yeah, those are pretty much the only decent ones as of late, along with other ones inspired by them. (The "X but Y changes" memes and all of their variations owe their existence to GiIvasunner and I love those) They seem to be the only memes that, well, feel like actual memes.

    Stuff like Damn Daniel and Harambe were stillborns and were spammed to death just to make absolutely sure there was NO humor in them.

    Those videos, though, with the hypothetically infinite combinations possible with them, you can literally never grow old of them. If one base video gets old, another one can easily take its place.

    Just look at what happened to The Nutshack theme, followed by We Are Number One, followed by the Bee Movie Trailer, followed briefly by The Mine Song, and currently Let It Grow from the Lorax (and a hint of Thneedville/How Bad Can I Be). You'd be hard pressed to find an end, so long as fictional works keep being made. It's a concept for a meme that, debatably, could live forever due to not being so much a meme, but more of a format for memes to follow.

    I feel like it really depends on the meme. Some of them can be funny if done correctly. Harambe is overdone and just mocking a dead gorilla by now, I'm not sure why Damn Daniel even became a thing, and bottle flips are just stupid.

    eh depends on the meme. in my opinion most of the newer memes are just completely horrible and cringy, but occasionally there's a good one. I prefer some of the really old memes though so yea.

    Saying Harambe was overdone implies there was comedy to have overdone in the first place. It was dead on arrival; a stillborn meme. But then it kept being used in spite of that.

    I thought Harambe was a little funny at first, because it was poking fun at similar events like the Cecil the lion outrage, but it got old quickly.

    Harambe's whatever I don't care, bottle flipping could have been nice and friendly but since it's only practiced by loud teenagers it's fucking atrocious, dabbing is stupid and annoying, pokemon go is dead, and damn daniel is pure metastasis though I'm happy it didn't get popular in France like dabbing or bottle flipping got.

    As for the topic of memes themselves I do think there can be good memes and bad memes. An example of a good meme for me would be We Are Number One.
    The song is cool unironically, the meme isn't making fun of something nor acting like a retard, but it's actually about making up the most random shit and that's amazing. We've seen tons of really creative we are number one videos, with some actual work put into them. Also the creators of the song embraced it and encouraged the community to continue. And finally it actually helped cure cancer.

    So I'd really say it depends on the meme, how it was created and what it consists of.

    Like all living organisms, all memes are born, live and die. However, memes that aren't drowned in the main stream, if its intrinsic value is high, can be "D A N K", and be considered as such, far from the reaches of normie media.
