We had such a great response on Facebook to our “Keep calm” article that we decided to take a look at other memes that drive people crazy.
The meme craze has begun and it shows no signs of stopping. Memes are just another popular way Internet users are showing their opinions, feelings or sense of humour to one another. It’s like adding a smiley face to your email, you get to express how you feel without offending anybody.
The “What People Think I Do/What I Really Do” meme basically tells all of your friends how your horrible life is actually more horrible than anyone could imagine. Ready for a pity party yet?
Another meme that has outstayed its welcome is the grumpy cat meme. Initially amusing, it’s now just plain old. Especially when you discover that the cat, called Tardar Sauce, looks that way because she suffers from dwarfism.
If you use the word “Fact” in large bold letters, then the message must be true, right? So we get memes that allow you to tell people that you hardly know, but have befriended on Facebook anyway, what you’re really like deep down inside.
This little boy originally gained internet fame in 2007 when his mother posted a photo online of her son on a beach, clutching a fist full of sand. The image quickly spread, often accompanied by captions reflecting sentiments of either success or frustration. The photo was used by Virgin Media in 2012 to promote their HD channels.
This woman is Sweet Brown, an Oklahoma City resident, who said the words “Ain’t Nobody got time for that!” during a television interview with a reporter about a fire in her apartment complex. The interview has become a viral hit and many people use it to make memes.
You can even have a meme based on a meme. The recent spate of zombie movies has given rise to appropriately-themed memes. This one takes one of the original memes and warns people of the imminent zombie apocalypse.

Now you can spread your marketing message while you’re on the move.
Now here’s a marketing idea that’s truly mobile. And it doesn’t entail driving a branded vehicle. Drivemotion is a car gadget that allows drivers to communicate with each other with a remote controlled LED display that attaches inside your rear car window (facing the driver behind).

Apple pips Coca-Cola to the post in the 2013 top brands listing.
Apple is the world’s top brand, worth $98,31bn and having shown a 28% rise in brand value over the past year.
This year, Apple unseated Coca-Cola from the top of the Beast Global Brands list. The beverage company had occupied this position for 13 years consecutively.
Apple has changed the way that people work, play, and communicate, and has set a high bar for aesthetics, simplicity and ease of use that all other technology brands strive to match.
Apple has appeared on Interbrand’s Best Global Brands ranking since 2000, when the ranking first debuted.
