Where technology is anthropology.
AN INFOGRAPHIC EXPLORES THE EXPLOSIVE F-BOMB OF A MEME THROUGH ITS SHORT HISTORY.
It may have started with a simple song. “America (Fuck Yeah)” was penned for Team America: World Police, a Matt Stone/Trey Parker flick that was a relatively small deal at the box office, pulling in a ho-hum $50 million or so worldwide.
But that idea—the [something] Fuck Yeah! concept—was clearly catchy. Asthis duo of infographics charts out, between 2007 and 2011, the meme had a meteoric rise, to the point where 150 Fuck Yeah! Tumblr blogs were created in a single day. (And while the phenomenon has peaked, there are still over 100 Fuck Yeah! Tumblr blogs created daily).
