What is your country's most famous meme?

M贸nica FreitasJan 4, 2022, 1:36 PM

One of our most famous is when asked, "Are you ready for today's game?" Ronaldo threw the mic to the river. The channel interviewing him is very popular for chasing ridiculous news and being very populist.

There's also this famous clip of Jorge Jesus, a football coach, trying to speak Spanish despite not knowing a word of it. We call this "portunhol" - that's when Portuguese people decide to wing it and mix Portuguese with a few Spanish words - and we're usually very confident that we're speaking perfect Spanish.

And staying on the EURO 2016 theme:

Image 1) Ronaldo: Nani, that was the one!
Nani: Calm down. I'm going to call Quaresma, Bruno Alves, Pepe and the Kebab man.

Image 2) Quaresma: Ronaldo, was this the one that hurt you?

Hahaha, I love this thread!
In Colombia, we have many things that make us laugh and we turn that automatically into a meme haha
Lately, we've been sharing a WhatsApp audio about a friend that's warning the other about the infidelity of her boyfriend, haha, but it's really funny! The hype is so huge, that the girl already released a song about it!

Hahahaha you can check it here

Hahaha even, during these days, we have like another wave of Covid-19, and the people are calling it 鈥淢acta鈥檚 hugh鈥 referring to the song! Hahahaha it's crazy

Teri EyenikeJan 4, 2022, 4:47 PM

Like Daniel Guzman rightly said, in Nigeria, we can turn anything into a meme. Lately, there has been a comrade meme that people use, and text is written over the image depending on the situation they want to portray.

M贸nica Freitas, you are stealing all the Portuguese memes!! Thank god there's plenty, hahaha!

Sara PintoJan 5, 2022, 12:16 PM

M贸nica Freitas, I have to show the world "Na Casa do Toy". Toy is a famous singer in Portugal, and this show was about his life, they even recorded inside his house. What made the show so great was that he talked about the most peculiar stuff, like how to drive with your knees and how to make "sopas de cavalo cansado", which is basically bread and red wine

M贸nica FreitasJan 5, 2022, 2:15 PM

Daniel Guzman, hahaha omg! Almost an Olivia Rodrigo vs Sabrina Carpenter situation. If that song doesn't play in clubs, you're doing it wrong 馃槀

M贸nica FreitasJan 5, 2022, 2:16 PM

Teri Eyenike, ahaahahha I love this!

Sara Pinto, ahahah we have tons. It won't be an issue to find memes.

Sara Pinto, Toy was a character. Speaking of it:

We do not take pride in this, ahahah.

M贸nica Freitas, I鈥檇 have to give it to this classic since it was a meme before the term 鈥渕eme鈥 was ever a thing.
