Pop Culture-Inspired Memes Were Making Us Laugh in 2020

We can always count on memes to put a smile on our faces, no matter how bleak the world may seem, and that was certainly the case in 2020. This year has given us some pretty amazing viral memes, and many of them drew inspiration from popular culture.

Tiger King

Calling Tiger King one of the biggest cultural phenomena of 2020 wouldn’t be an understatement. The hit Netflix docu-series gave us that viral “Carole Baskin” TikTok song and countless hilarious memes.

“Gossip Girl” Titles

In one of the most ridiculous and effortless memes of 2020, the title of Gossip Girl was turned into all sorts of hilarious acronyms, composed by rearranging or blanking the letters or creating funny rhymes.

Stunned Robert Pattinson

2020 was the year when many silly celebrity moments from the past were pluck from obscurity and took the central stage. One of the best examples is the stunned reaction of Robert Pattinson standing in a kitchen wearing a brown tracksuit while filming his indie film Good Time.

Sue Sylvester

Sue Sylvester’s iconic Glee line “I am going to create an environment that is so toxic” also remerged this year and ended up being transformed into a viral meme through hilarious variations of the original quote.
