    3. 3. Behold, Potato Jesus! A Joke Only an Art School Grad Could Love!Ecce Homo (Behold Man) is a fairly straightforwardfresco of Jesus by the Spanish painter Elias GarciaMartinez. Residing in the Sanctuary of the MercyChurch in Boria, Zaragoza, the painting rose tofame in 2012 when Cecilia Giménez, an 85 year-old local “artist”, painted over the fresco in anattempt to restore it.Renamed Ecce Mono (Behold Monkey), PotatoJesus, Dum Dum Jesus, and Beast Jesus it becamean overnight meme sensation with hundreds ofBAD photoshop spoofs littering the web.This site by BBH London allowed people to“restore” the fresco, promote it via Pinterest &Twitter, and compete for prizes. The results areawful.

    10. 10. Gangnam Style - K Hop Invades America 10
    11. 11. 214,000,000 YouTube Hits and Counting Gangnam Style is K-hop dance song by the Korean artist PSY. The song is from PSY’s sixth studio album PSY 6 (Six Rules) and the video was released on July 15th, 2012. “Gangnam Style” refers to the posh, trend setting district of Seoul and is vaguely comparable to the English slang words “swag” and “yolo”. Besides being catchy as hell, the video is well known for PSY’s (now) signature “horse-riding dance” and the “yoga butt” scene. Essentially Psy is caricaturing elite culture by singing about what a classy girl he wants while acting like a buffoon, contrasting reality and image. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2012/08/28/gangnam-style-viral- popularity-in-u-s-has-koreans-puzzled-gratified/ 11
