Will “Posterizing” Be the Next Big Meme?

Hey, remember planking? How about Tebowing? Or maybe Te’oing?

Well, if we’re lucky, the big internet meme of 2013 will be posterizing.

Now, for the uninitiated, “posterize” is a basketball term which basically means “to dunk on someone in a memorable fashion.” The idea is that, when a guy does this it looks like one of those basketball posters kids used to have in their rooms in the 1980s and 90s. So the dunker is “posterizing” the dunkee.

So how would one turn “posterizing” into a meme? Well, obviously, by posterizing random people in random settings. Just like this:

Some guy on Twitter with the handle @Scrimsurlalune tweeted this GIF on Saturday. He didn’t say who these kids are, or where this took place. But don’t be surprised if imitators start popping up. And man, just think of all the possibilities—posterizing at the grocery store, posterizing at the mall, posterizing at weddings, posterizing at graduations. The possibilities are endless.

Of course, if you want to speed things up, you could make your own posterizing video. And if you do, be sure to let us know.
