It is almost the weekend and here is something lighthearted.

At the end of 2011, a boy decided to propose to a girl.

What was uniquely early 21st century about it was the Internet memes that the guy used in his proposal. (If you need to catch up on memes, visit 9gag regularly or try this app.)

Another boy proposed to another girl, but this time the guy used stop-motion LEGO minifigs to make his intentions known.

Stop-motion has been around since movies were black and white. LEGO has been around for about as long. But stop-motion was not something that the layperson could do easily or conveniently. Today we have tools like JellyCam on the Mac and iTimeLapse on the iPhone to make short stop-motion movies.

We really should stop labelling the time we live in as the Information Age as it reeks of consumption. We are in the Creation and Interaction Age!

As a side note, I think that most Singaporeans will have this reaction: Spoil market! All I can say is I am glad that I am happily married and do not have to think of outdoing proposals like these!

Meme defined. Memes illustrated in video above.

The Gag Quartet claims to have squeezed over 40 memes into the song. Can you identify them all?
