First of all, have a look at the SFW trailer for Meme Lover 2: Dawn of Just, apparently the second “meme-themed” porn film ever developed.Some scattered thoughts:
Are people who love memes a real, lucrative market now? Like, within the first 15 seconds of this trailer I’m watching a fake Emperor Palpatine brandish a small drawing of Pepe. That’s… real marketing. The Pepe cross-section is the new 18-49 demographic.
I have to give them credit. The producers know their stuff on a deeper level than you’d expect—at least, from an artifact that’s desperately vamping its “meme awareness.” At one point, a guy points a finger at a pair of tits and says “check out these dubs,” which requires a pretty intermediate 4chan lexicon. Yeah, there are also image macro gags, but I’d like to believe the people making this thing went far beyond the front page of Reddit.
One girl shoots a gun and says, “You’re the man now dog,” which is played out, but then the two guys say, “That’s on older meme, sir, but it checks out,” which totally redeems it. This thing is OK, I guess.
So, yeah, here we have a pornographic film that touches every corner of the meme multiverse, from obnoxious teenage Twitter trends (Damn Daniel) to ancient stuff nobody remembers (I Can Haz/LOLcat jokes) and some real OG shit that will make a few thousand 4chan chuckleheads laugh and scream. I have to say, I’m kinda into this? I don’t think I’ll ever pay for porn in my life, but something this silly and this specific at least gets a curiosity boner. It’s out June 4 via Brazzers, so get your fapping hand ready.
