Meme: All videos on the Internet – the background of the game Skyrim

You see a video with two half-naked girls – they close your eyes to you – you suddenly find yourself in Skyrim.

Roleplay The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – one of the most famous in the world. Bethesda studio released it on November 11, 2011 – since then, the project has received many awards and sold millions of copies. But Skyrim was remembered not only by a fascinating gameplay, but also by numerous memes. One of them appeared at the end of February 2019: according to him, any video on the Internet is just a pre-history of Skyrim.

One of the most famous jokes about the game is that even eight years later, Bethesda and personally the head of the studio Todd Howard are looking for any ways to re-sell Skyrim to people. Since 2011, there have been various reissues, HD versions, versions for new consoles and VR. At the E3 2018 conference, Bethesda herself beat this meme, jokingly presenting the version of Skyrim for Amazon speakers and refrigerators.

One of the most typical jokes about Skyrim: Todd Howard, who finds a player anywhere. He usually says “Hear, buy” or “Buy Skyrim”. Mem has become popular both in Russia and in the West.

In the autumn of 2018, the meme turned out to be a development. To understand it, you need to familiarize yourself with the opening scene of Skyrim. In short: the player wakes up in a cart with prisoners. One of the characters tells the player: “Hey, you finally woke up.” At this time, the inscription “Skyrim” appears on the screen.

Users of social networks have come up with a joke: any household story or situation ends with a sudden “blackening” in the eyes. And after regaining consciousness, the user finds himself in a cart from Skyrim and hears: “Hey, finally you are awake.

News: "The oldest bottle of wine in the world has not been opened since the fourth century." Comment: “I drank the wine of the fourth century. I have a stomachache. Everything is darker. Wake up in the wagon. “Hey, you finally woke up”

After a dozen similar stories in February, the meme received a video version. At first it was tested on fragments from games and movies. The structure of the joke remains the same: something suddenly happens – and the user suddenly finds himself in Skyrim.

It turned out that such a trick can be done with almost any video on the Internet, including erotic videos. In social networks, they compared the meme with “Ricrol” and complained that they too often ran across the Skyrim screensaver. Often, complaints were accompanied by the phrase “Todd, again you did it” – a hint that Howard again found a way to offer to buy the game.
