I found this video to be creepy, fun, and surreal.
Who was that girl? How did she get into his apartment?
Then I saw this video…
My whole thinking changed. It’s a meme! “Creeper in My Apartment” is a meme. I’m not sure who was the first to tell this story and nothing came up when I searched the Know Your Meme website (which you must visit, BTW).
I love stuff like this! This video is an urban folktale told and retold through new media. “Creeper in My Apartment” is modern day electronic folklore that brings to mind tales such as “The Vanishing Hitchhiker.” I’m going to look for more of these. If you know of any, please share in the comments!
