Today is the first day of MEME week. Over the past couple of years internet memes have risen to great popularity as a way of communicating humour and parodying current events. A meme is defined as an element of a culture or behaviour that may be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation. With this as my underlying theme for the week, today I have dressed as Antoine Dodson who rose to fame in 2010 when he gave an interview on a local television program outlining the events of a home intrusion and attempted rape of his sister, Kelly Dodson. The interview became an Internet sensation and resulted in an Auto-Tuned song by The Gregory Brothers that has sold thousands of copies on iTunes and appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 list. You can watch the original news story and listen to the auto-tune track here. Get ready to hide yo kids and hide yo wife, coz I’m costuming every meme out here!
