FAQs about making video memes

What is a meme?

Believe it or not, memes are now officially part of the Merriam-Webster dictionary. They are made up of words, videos, GIFs and, per Merriam-Webster, represent any “idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture.” Yeah...pretty broad. But hey, it’s a word now.

How’s a video meme different from a regular meme?

A video meme isn’t necessarily “different.” It just seems like the genesis of memes were hilarious static images with similarly hilarious text thrown on top of them. Video takes this a step further, of course, by adding motion. See: more hilarity.
