The Weirdest, Craziest Internet Moments of 2022 You May Have Forgotten

The great Lebowskiit is VI Lenin said once, “There are decades when nothing happens; and there are weeks when decades happen.” In 2022, decades have passed. The pandemic, the elections, the wars, all of this has simply distorted our sense of time. So much so that it’s hard to keep track of what happened in any given year.

That’s why we thought we’d be doing you a favor by rounding up some of the best, weirdest, and most memorable internet moments you’ve probably forgotten this year. Because who knows, this event that seems to have happened decades ago is only a few months old. Month.

1. Elmo vs. Rocco

Remember when the beloved sesame street the character went viral for his feud with a rock fart? This year.


Elmo is the first viral celebrity of 2022

Yours sincerely wrote about the quarrel January 5, 2022. It’s this year, mate. It all started with this clip that went super viral.

It was the quarrel of the month, even appearing on Saturday Night Live.

2. The academic record debate

Sometimes the internet stumbles upon a weird thing to get mad at. In fact, come to think of it, that’s most of what the Internet does. In August, all the internet could talk about was which color folder coincided with which subject in school. It seems like an eternity ago, but that was just this summer.


This School Matter, Folder Color Twitter Debate Is Perfect Internet Fodder

By the way, the only correct answer:

  • Yellow – history

  • Red – math

  • Green – science

  • Blue – English

3. Chicken NyQuil

People briefly got angry online about people cooking chicken at NyQuil and guess what? No one was doing itlike all other DAnGeRoUs online challenges.


No, NyQuil chicken is not a real TikTok trend

4. Euphoria final meme

It’s true, Euphoria ended its second season in February of this year. The finale sparked countless memes and viral moments.


Tears? Laughing? These Season 2 “Euphoria” memes will have you feeling everything.

There’s just no way for my brain to register that it all happened this year. But I have never been so happy.

5. Uncut Jaaaahmz

remember this time actress Julia Fox said“I mean, I was Josh Safdie’s muse when he wrote Uncut gems.” Seems like a normal thing to say, right? But the internet really lost it on how Fox pronounced it like yaaaahmz. This viral moment was first posted in February. And, oh, back when she was dating Ye, which also happened this year.


Julia Fox is everywhere, even TikTok

6. Will Smith slapped Chris Rock

OK, maybe I’m an idiot here, since the infamous slap was obviously this year’s Oscars. But doesn’t The Slap feel like ages ago? All jokes and memes are played so much now. It happened in March.

7. The Barbie pictures

Remember when everyone stopped what they were doing to watch Ryan Gosling dressed as a Ken doll? It was in June. Here it is, in all its faded blonde glory.

The movie comes out next year, by the way.


Hey girl, drop it all and watch Ryan Gosling like a shirtless Ken doll

8. People used Google to troll and inform Russia

Russia invaded Ukraine in February this year. Soon after, people started using Google reviews to write about the invasion. They wrote about the crisis in Ukraine in a review of a coffeeshop in Moscow, for example.

9.The don’t worry darling incident

In September, the drama, the spitting and the brothel of the film don’t worry darling took over the internet. Everyone, and we mean everyone, was talking about how maybe Harry Styles…spit…on Chris Pine at a film festival? And how Styles and Olivia Wilde could have been together before confirming their relationship. And how perhaps Florence Pugh was arguing with Wilde. And so on.
