Almost three years ago to the day, we introduced you to our new site that hopefully became your daily stop for all things meme- and Internet-related. Nearly a year ago, I contributed my first post -- my mom rapping classic hip-hop songs if you're keeping track -- and today marks the last post (for me, at least.)
For my last vid, I wanted to combine earnest sentimentality with ridiculous absurdity, two traits that have served the site well since launching in April 2008. It's been scientifically proven that playing Boyz II Men's "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye to Yesterday" over ANY slo-mo video induces cheap empathy, and I am nothing if not a whore for cheap empathy.
With that, I created the video below that looks back on all the big memes since we launched the site, starting with the shiba inu puppies and ending with... well, if you don't know what we end with, you need to brush up on your memes. Thanks for watching. Now if you'll excuse us, we have a keyboard and a cat to set up.
Ed's Note: Urlesque.com is moving shop. From today on, you'll find a handful of your favorite Urlbots still delivering all the memes, trends and amazing Internetness that we can find, but we won't live at urlesque.com anymore. We're really grateful to all our fans for being a big part of our family for all these years. Feel free to reach out to us on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr and keep a look out for more information within the next few days. We <3 you.
And, of course, big big hugs to Urlbots past and present. You guys were the dream team.
