As We End The Year, Check Out These Viral Moments That Made An Impact On Us

This year the internet blessed us with endless memes, challenges and viral moments that we will cherish forever. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and her “Rise and Shine” and Keke Palmer’s “Sorry to this man” were trolled furiously by meme-makers. From the bottle cap challenge to the ‘Storm Area 51’ event, we rounded up the best viral moments of the year for your enjoyment. You’re welcome.

The egg that got more likes than Kylie Jenner.

Kylie Jenner got de-throned. She no longer has the most “liked” photo on Instagram thanks to an egg stock photo. A boring stock photo of a brown egg on a white background scrambled its way to the top of Instagram, becoming the most liked post of all time with 53 million likes and counting, poaching the title from reality TV personality Kylie Jenner.

The bottle cap challenge showed how talented and precise some people can be.

This summer, UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway challenged singer John Mayer to the bottle cap challenge. In the challenge, the celebrities unscrewed a bottle cap halfway and then attempted to completely unscrew the cap with a roundhouse kick. Everyone from Charlie Sheen to Kendall Jenner attempted the feat.

Nancy Pelosi clapping at President Donald Trump became a mood for an entire nation.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won the title of “Queen of the Condescending Applause” during a State of the Union address after sarcastically clapping at Trump when he said: “We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution and embrace the boundless potential of co-operation, compromise and the common good.”

The “Cats” movie trailer was a troublesome moment.

The highly anticipated trailer for the feature film “Cats,” based off the hit Broadway musical, sparked a lot of confusion and discomfort. 

The coffee cup in Game of Thrones that sent a fandom into chaos.

When the news of how a coffee cup left by mistake in a scene of the final season went viral, people started tweeting out jokes. One user wrote, “Imagine HBO spending millions on every single episode and being done over by a single coffee cup. Guess Dany didn’t get the memo about reusable chalices.” 

Kylie Jenner’s ‘Rise and Shine’ musical debut was everything.

In the viral video, Kylie wakes up her daughter, Stormi, from a nap by singing the phrase, “rise and shine.” The internet quickly latched onto the song, with many creating remixes and memes.  A few weeks later, it was reported that the reality star and businesswoman tried to trademark the phrase “rise and shine.” 

Area 51 stormers and the one hero who did a perfect Naruto run.

People showed up in the Nevada desert for Alienstock, a music festival that sprang out of a viral Facebook plan to storm Area 51 in September, and one festival-goer nailed a Naruto run during a live news broadcast. Iconique.

Marie Kondo’s “Tidying Up” got Americans to finally go through their clutter.

There’s no doubt the cleaning master, Marie Kondo’s “does this spark joy?” rule has inspired many to declutter. However, the hilarious memes that came of it spark joy even more than getting rid of your 20-year-old soccer jersey.

The Fiji Water Girl who was everywhere.

A Canadian model stole Golden Globes red carpet spotlight this year. As some of Hollywood’s biggest stars took to the red carpet ahead of the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards in January, a Canadian woman carrying a tray of bottled Fiji Water stole the spotlight after photobombing several celebrities, pouring herself into Internet fame.

Comedian DJ Pryor shared a hilarious video of himself and his son, Kingston Jierre, having what sounds like a two-sided conversation in perfect English, except the baby doesn’t speak a word of actual English. My heart melts.

Baby Yoda of “The Mandalorian” united the Internet with jajajas.

Yoda is one of the most beloved (and wisest) characters of the Star Wars franchise, and the internet lost its mind when a baby version of the Jedi master was revealed as a character in “The Mandalorian,” a Disney+ TV series. The memes have been endless —and we’re not mad about it.

There’s A Reason This Brutally Honest Adoption Ad For A ‘Demonic Man-Hating Chihuahua’ Named Prancer Went Viral

There’s A Reason This Brutally Honest Adoption Ad For A ‘Demonic Man-Hating Chihuahua’ Named Prancer Went Viral

Adopter be ware.

That’s the message that a desperate New Jersey foster mom shared in a recent plea to animal lovers potentially interested in adopting a Chihuahua named Prancer. In a viral post shared on Facebook, animal foster mom Tyfanee Fortuna attempted to make an appeal to adopters on behalf of the dog whom she describes as a “haunted Victorian child in the body of a small dog that hates men and children.”

The post didn’t take long to go viral.

In a shockingly honest post, Fortuna spoke on the personality traits of the dog named Prancer on social media.

“There’s not a very big market for neurotic, man-hating, animal-hating, children-hating dogs that look like gremlins,” Fortuna underlined in the post shared to Facebook. “But I have to believe there’s someone out there for Prancer, because I am tired and so is my family. Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home.”

It didn’t take long for Fortuna’s comedic Facebook post about Prance to amass nearly 64K shares.

“Prancer only likes women. Nothing else,” another portion of the post explained. “He hates men more than women do, which says a lot. If you have a husband don’t bother applying, unless you hate him.”

Smitten viewers of the post who were interested in Prancer were thankfully quick to request a chance to adopt him.

“We are still accepting applicants who are within a 3- to 4-hour radius of New Jersey, as we are still sifting through applications and trying to pick out his best fit,” Fortuna explained to Today in an interview. “A lot of people have applied who have husbands and pets, and we’d prefer he go to a home with just women and no other pets.”

Fortuna works as foster mom for the Oak Ridge, New Jersey-based Second Chance Pet Adoption League and is hopeful that someone will help Prancer find a suitable and loving home. 

WhileFortuna was sure to underline some of Prancer’s more intense traits, she also listed those that plenty would find loveable.

“He is loyal beyond belief, although to tell you a secret his complex is really just a facade for his fear. If someone tried to kill you I can guarantee he would run away screeching. But as far as companionship, you will never be alone again,” she wrote of the sweetie. “He likes to go for car rides, he is housebroken, he knows a few basic commands, he is quiet and non-destructive when left alone at home, and even though we call him bologna face he is kind of cute to look at.”

Pedro Pascal ‘Breaks The Internet’ With Red Carpet Look And This Is Why We Love Him

With everything going on in the world it can be easy to get distracted, or even fall out of the 24/7 news cycle. But every once in awhile there’s something so good and so wonderful that you can’t help but to get sucked back in. And this time it was Pedro Pascal – star of The Mandalorian and Wonder Woman 1984 – that had all the Internet talking after his recent appearance at the BAFTAs.

Pedro Pascal presented at this year’s BAFTAs and looked great doing it!

On Sunday, the British Academy of Film hosted the 2021 BAFTA Awards. Among the presenters were Mandalorian and Wonder Woman 1984 star, Pedro Pascal.

The Mandalorian and Narcos star presented the award for Best Foreign Film which went to the Danish movie, Another Round. But Pascal’s fans had one thing on their mind – and it wasn’t the award he was presenting.

Like several presenters before him, Pascal put his own spin on the black tie event by leaving his tie at home. As reported by GQ, the Wonder Woman 1984 star was dressed in a Prada tuxedo coat, which he paired with a white shirt, fitted suit trousers, and slick black shoes. Combined with his messy hair, his glasses, and that smile, it proved a rather intoxicating mix.

The former Game of Thrones actor has a loyal fan base, and they immediately took to social media to share their thoughts about Pascal’s BAFTA appearance.

Many pointed out he was a living, talking, walking thirst trap.

There were plenty who took to Twitter to express their absolute thirst of this man.

Another fan embraced his quirky beauty!

One Twitter user was going gaga for their ‘king,’ “Our king, @PedroPascal1, has a bald patch in his beard & stands pigeon toed & he’s so beautiful & loved. You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. In fact, perfection is impossible to fulfill. Your imperfections are what make you beautiful. Be proud of them. You are loved.”

For many, it came down to that award-winning smile.

I mean you can’t deny the guy has a great smile.

But Pascal wasn’t the only one at the BAFTAs. Hugh Grant also gave a classically Hugh Grant speech about Ang Lee, and BAFTA Rising Star winner Bukky Bakray paid tribute to those who died in the past year in a moving speech that belied the newcomer’s age. And the likes of Nomadland and Promising Young Woman scooped up major prizes.
