Why a dog meme? Simple. Who can really scroll by an image of a dog doing some derp-y behavior without at least stopping to read the words printed onto it? It’s a sure fired way to slow down a potential reader and gather there attention for at least a few seconds. If we were to compare this meme to a part of a song it would be the fire hook that draws you in and makes you want to listen to the next two to three minutes of auto-tuned chorus repeats.
Also the words associated with it convey the feelings, I think, of a lot of people about those who travel. It’s a prominent thing to travel now, and maybe it always has been. But the ease of sharing thanks to social media (check my last post out for a better explanation) allows us to become over saturated with cherry picked moments from people’s lives so that they look like they are always on the move or experiencing new things. For some this is great, they want to see what they’re missing or haven’t had the opportunity to see yet. For others they act like this poor doggo and are just fed up with hearing about our plane-hopping, country jumping selves.
Either way I think we can all agree the dog is cute.
