Imagine what it would be like if someone used your photo every time they wanted to illustrate something funny, or ridiculously outrageous? You’d become an online laughing stock like these famous meme stars. But have you ever wondered where they are now? Did some of them bank of their fame or did they slowly fade into oblivion?
What Are Those? Then
Internet comedian Brandon Moore was the man behind the viral “What Are Those” meme. In 2015, Moore filmed a cop and panned down at the officer’s shoes. Then Moore asked “What are those?!,” which was his own way to taunt the cop and make fun of his shoes. After he posted the video on Vine, the meme became an internet megahit and was often used to burn someone wearing fugly shoes.
