Lots of images, characters, brands and people have reached international fame through internet memes and viral videos. But it is interesting to remember how everything began. Dipity provides a timeline called Internet memes where we can check them in chronological order. There you can find lots of well-known memes, as well as others that you have probably never heard of.

Another option for the nostalgic ones is to check “The Internet stars are viral”, a fun and vintage YouTube video that shows some of the first memes and viral videos of the Internet. Below you will see the lyrics of the song, with links and references to find out more information about each one.

Remembering these cases helps us to understand the phenomena, because their success and popularity is mostly based on the same principles of today’s virality.
