The story of the deadly thrust of an insect to the bright light, told with the help of dozens of templates from other memes.
Often a meme is a certain pattern or design that is changed a little if necessary. But sometimes a meme becomes a hero who “roams” in other patterns. Around them on Reddit can arise whole communities: for example, a section with memes about demanding with 200 thousand subscribers. The same motivating hero in September was the moth, who wanted to get to the lamp.
It all started with a photo of the “frightening” moth outside the window, published in the r / creery section on Reddit. The most popular comment was the assumption that the insect asks: “Hey, dude, do you have LAMPS?”.
The phrase is a reference to the fact that moths constantly fly to the light. Scientists do not know exactly why they do it. One of the options – night moths use the moon as navigation, and an artificial light source knocks them down. In any case, on the “main page of the Internet” they remembered this fact and wrapped it in jest.
About moths again remembered on September 21, when another user of Reddit shared a video with the “devilish insect”. And again in the comments joked about craving for lamps
After that, in sections r / dankmemes and r / memeconomy, they began to rewrite various templates for memes, adding to them a moth from previous posts and a lamp. The plot is the same: the insect loves the light too much and is ready to reach it by any means.
