Selfie kid

Justin Timberlake performed the halftime show at the Super Bowl and it’s really impossible to say who’s more popular now 0 his performance or… a kid making selfie who has became a meme.

Here’s how it was.

Towards the end of the show, Timberlake made his way up into the crowd, where he performed the end of his medley. He stopped right next to this kid, who seemed like he was not expecting to be thrust into the center of the most-watched event of the year.

After dancing with Timberlake for a bit, the kid gets out his phone to make a selfie.

He immediately became a viral meme.

Perfect proposal pic

The collage of these pics quickly became viral as many of people found this moment relatable.

In the pics, the photographer had to wear a ring of her cousin to make the photo perfect as the bride didn’t have her nails done.

Walmart Yodeling Kid

The viral video of the boy yodeling at a Southern Illinois Walmart.

Youtube has even added the boy to its Rewind video.

Roland Szabo and Yanny or Laurel 

The great Yanny vs. Laurel debate exploded after Redditor RolandCamry shared a record of a computer-generated voice and it divided America into two camps. The voice appears to be saying one word, and no one can agree if it’s saying “laurel” or “yanny.”
