An Internet meme is an idea that is propagated through the World Wide Web. The idea may take the form of a hyperlink, video, picture, website, hashtag, animated gif or just a word or phrase. The meme may spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, news sources, or other web-based services. Internet memes can evolve and spread extremely rapidly, sometimes reaching world-wide popularity within a few days.
Memes related to Harrison Ford
Han Shot First
Han Shot First is a notable quote used by fans of the Star Wars franchise to state their opinion in a scene in Episode IV: A New Hope, in which Han Solo is in a standoff with the bounty hunter Greedo. In the original 1977 version of the film, Han is the only one that fires a shot, whereas the 1997 altered version of Star Wars depicts Greedo firing a shot at Han Solo shortly before Han responds in kind.
Han shot first has been used all over the internet in images, videos, and other media. The phrase has also been used by fans to show contempt with any changes made to the original movies. Merchandise that include the phrase, such as t-shirts, are very popular.
Do you agree that Han shot first? I bet you have.
I’m Fucking Over It
This meme was born of a competition that never existed between Ian Mckellen and Harrison Ford: Who’s the geekiest? Somebody photoshopped a picture of Sir Ian Mckellen writing in his shirt the legend “I’m Gandalf and Magneto. Get over it!” pointing out that nobody could “beat” that. However, someone else felt it was time to tell things as they are and shortly after the first picture went popular on the internet, a new picture this time featuring Harrison Ford was photoshopped with the legend “I’m Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Blade Runner. I’m fuckin’ over it!”
Again, both pictures are fake. Still, very funny indeed.
“I already work around the clock”
This meme was born shortly after the original trailer for Extraordinary Measures came out. It features Harrison barking, “I already work around the clock” to Brendan Fraser. It means when somebody asks you to do something above and beyond, just scream “I already work around the clock!” and they’ll shut up. ESPN’s Bill Simmons also helped to spread the word among his followers by tweeting “How many times have you screamed, “I already work around the clock!!!!” at someone today? I am at 25″
“We are going to die!”
“We Are Going To Die” is a memorable quote taken from a scene of the film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, wherein Indiana Jones tries to convince Willie Scott to put her hand into a hole filled with bugs, otherwise he and Short Round will going to die.
What up, Biotch?!
Water to Wine is a 2004 film that is half-documentary, half-comedy about a kid who is thought to be the top snowboarder in the world until the day he gets put in jail.
Harrison Ford appears as Jethro the Bus Driver as a favour to his son Malcolm, who acts as one of the snowboarders in the film. His utterance of the line “What up, biotch?” has become an internet meme spreading from one person to another throughout the internet.
Nuke the Fridge
Nuke the fridge is a colloquialism used to refer to the moment in a film series that is so incredible that it lessens the excitement of subsequent scenes that rely on more understated action or suspense, and it becomes apparent that a certain installment is not as good as a previous installments. Source: Urban Dictionary
The term comes from the film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which, near the start of the movie, Indiana Jones survives a nuclear detonation by climbing into a kitchen fridge, which is then blown hundreds of feet through the sky whilst the town disintegrates. He then emerges from the fridge with no apparent injury.
“Who Gives A Shit”
“Who Gives A Shit” is a quote of Harrison Ford taken from a Conan O Brien interview from 2011 when a guy asked him if he knew the color of the whip falls of the Indiana Jones films. It has become a popular internet gif used when somebody want to express that nobody cares about a topic. It is usually in regards to a fact or an action that might be considered of little importance.
“Can’t Stop the Rock”
Can’t Stop the Rock is a series of YTMNDs based on a very well known scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the one wherein Indiana Jones is chased by a huge boulder rolling behind him. Originally paired with Apollo 440’s Stop the Rock, the humorous juxtaposition of audio/video content was well received in the community and spawned an interesting batch of derivative sites.
