For the most part, memes make sense. They're typically a reflection of current events or societal norms that need a good satirizing now and again. But every once in a while, a meme pops up and spreads so fast and so arbitrarily that even the best of us aren't able to make sense of it.
This past weekend Snapchat introduced a new filter that featured a dancing hot dog. Business as usual for the app, seems harmless right? Wrong.
This mischievous dancing hot dog has been up to no good since the very first moment his little body popped up on that Snapchat screen, and it's all the internet's fault.
This was my first attempt at making sense of what was going on.
It got so dark, so fast.
He began appearing in Netflix original series.
Literally nobody knew what was going on.
It got freaky.
An ancient meme got a face lift featuring the hottest frank in the world.
That which cannot be understood, must be accepted, and this is one of those things.
