The newest photo meme is Vadering. One person holds their hand out to use a Force Grip on their victim in the style of Darth Vader. The other person appears to be floating while choking. The resulting photo is pretty awesome in a “Look at me! I'm a huge Star Wars nerd!” kind of way. (Source)


According to journalist David Moye, Vadering pics are forcing their way onto Twitter and Reddit, but getting a better reception than other meme crazes like planking, Tebowing or owling because the photos combine silliness with a certain amount of skill in photography and/or acting.
Vadering requires precision timing, a big jump and a well timed camera shot, but the effect looks great when done right. (Source)


Some skeptics were convinced that Vadering started as a viral marketing effort by Chick-Fil-A. The first photo that appeared on Reddit had a Chick-Fil-A soda cup prominently displayed. (Source | Via)


School girls in Japan are posting photos of themselves doing Kamehameha attacks and other moves from the popular manga and anime series Dragon Ball. (Source)


Kamehamehaing, Hadokening, or Hadoukening, as it's being called, is an awesome Japanese trend which is quickly going viral and is probably better than the Harlem Shake. (Source)


People seem to have a love-hate relationship with dogs dressed up like humans, but that hasn't stopped the Internet from churning out more ridiculous memes. The latest installment: Dogs wearing pantyhose (OK, we're classing it up a bit, Dis Magazine called it "bitches wearing pantyhose") is a trend picking up in China, according to Sharp Daily, a Hong Kong news site.

Tilda Swinton's art installation at New York City's MoMA museum—where she sleeps in a glass box (seriously, that's a real thing)—has inspired what might be "the next big meme." Will the Internet take it and run with it? We'll have to wait and see.

But early efforts to make #Tildaing happen are certainly amusing. It's basically just sleeping in public, except more artistic. So sleep like no one is watching and snap a picture. That's Tildaing! (Source)


Mashable has been an early advocate, even creating their own glass box! Bonus points for you, Mashable! You go, Mashable! (Source)
