Hello Internet and welcome to Behind The Meme, today we have a look at Nyan Cat.
Thank you so very much for all of the comments suggesting a video on this here topic.
This one is an oldie but a goodie!
You guys wanted it, now you have it, here we go!!!
Considering that the website we are currently using is YouTube, the pioneer of the old classic
cat video, it's safe to make the assumption that at least some of my viewers are cat people.
To the others who are dog people like me, I know that cats and cat people can be confusing
but rest assured, the cat I will speak of today is totally cute, totally fruity, and
totally gangster.
This furry&fruity little fella's name is Nyan Cat.
Now for the longest time I had no clue of how to pronounce its name I always thought
it Nyan and then I thought it was neon, but apparently it is Ne-en and Don't act like
you knew how to properly pronounce it either!
You are lying!!
He was created by a Puerto Rican illustrator named Chris Torres.
Chris first posted Nyan Cat on his art website LOL Comics! all the way back in April of 2011.
The concept of Nyan Cat was inspired by Torres' cat Marty and my favorite breakfast food ever,
the Pop-tarts!!!
You know, that breakfast food that taste delicious and has the possibility of giving you diabetes
before you turn 12, but it's totally worth it cause they taste amazing!
I could easily go on and ramble about how great Pop-tarts are but for the sake of not
making a 9 day long video, lets get back on track.
Nyan Cat is a gif gif gif gif gif gif?
animation of a cat fused with a Pop-tart flying with a rainbow trailing behind him.
3 amazing things combined into one epic creation!
God Is officially real!
Torres uploaded the cat and thought it was going to be just another animation that was
seen one day and forgotten the next, but a few days later , YouTuber SARA JUNE uploaded
a video of Nyan Cat looping continuously and paired it with the song Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!
I think that's how it's pronounced, (which was made) by the Japanese music producer daniwellP.
The video is quite compelling and addictive, so much so that a 10 hour versions of this loop actually exists.
Here's a sample of the cuteness that is Nyan Cat.
The original video quickly spiraled into viral stardom and was pushed to that point by being
featured on the College Humor website and even on the Tosh.0 blog.
And as of making this video the original Nyan Cat upload has amassed over 148 million views!
Nyan Cat became so popular that it inspired new fans to create their very own remixes
and edits that range from action-packed to downright odd.
I tell you, only in this day and age could a fictional Pop-tarts cat become an internet legend.
One might even say that Nyan Cat is almost the Kim Kardashian of cats.
But….
lets not insult a fictional character.
They have feelings too you know?
On the bright side this colorful critter has been featured on multiple games for computers
and smartphones and the deeper down the Nyan Cat rabbit hole you go, the more it seems
like people can't get enough of this cute little critter.
On the Nyan Cat website you can pick anything from a mexican Nyan Cat to a zombie Nyan cat
to fly endlessly through space for your amusement.
Seriously!
This website is dedicated to counting how down how long you can watch the cat fly and
the longest known record is a whopping 3289 hours.
I'd hate to see the PG & E bill for that guy's house.
But sadly as we all know nothing lasts forever.
Except STDS. In November of 2012, Chris took to twitter to tweet all of Nyan Cat’s fanbase
that Marty, the cat named after Marty McFly, and the cat who inspired Nyan Cat, had died
in his arms from a battle with Feline infectious peritonitis.
Now I'm not a veterinarian, but that sort of sounds like the HIV of the C-A-T's.
Despite not being a cat person, it's really not hard to see the bond that these 2 clearly
had and feel nothing but remorse for Chris's loss.
In memory of his beloved Marty, He changed the Nyan Cat's animation on the website
to a "Sad Nyan Cat" for the day.
Which was the usual Nyan Cat but just without his usual chipper demeanor.
Even though Marty is no longer with us, he will forever be immortalized and remembered
as an internet legend.
So there you have it, what started off as a simple animation for shits and giggles,
got looped together with a snazzy Japanese tune, and became an internet sensation in
the process that is a pillar of the culture.
But hey!
That's the internet for you and on the internet memes are kiiiing!
Thank you all so very much for watching.

favorite memes and trends!
Who knows, you may learn about something you never knew about before.
I'll catch you beautiful people next time.
