When I was in elementary school I got on the news for the begining of schools giving flu shoots, and my picture was on their. They took the shot right when I took the shot I also end up on the news sometimes for memorial day every year, and Labor day parade.

Not sure if this counts or not, but this year my county got famous for a certain hashtag started by the kids. They wanted the school board to let us have school off this one week, because it was snowing a lot, but we had to stay in school all day. It really sucked, but then it trended so much that it was on the news and it even pushed the school board to let us have, like, 2 more days off that week and many more.

I don't remember people ever saying pleb or plebian on reddit or any other internet site until I played Total War: Rome 2

I watch The Fox by Ylvis before it became popular.

Like literally 2 days after it was released.

Well, a friend of my step dad's was raped at a concert by one of the lead singers (Ronnie Radke from Falling in Reverse) in my hometown, and I was the first to post about it via social media. Nobody believed me, but then a day later, it was all over news and other people even started posting about it. But it's pretty unfortunate, because people are actually defending the guy and calling the victim a liar.

"Oh, he would never do something like that! A guy I never met who makes shitty music! PSH!"

No. I'm glad, too. I dislike being the center of attention and prefer having at least some measure of privacy and anonymity. Even though being part of a something viral probably won't bring lasting fame, it still sounds uncomfortable.

It seems like those types of bands always have pedophiles or rapists in them... and the worst fanbase ever to support their criminal deeds. Like Blood on the Dance Floor? They've had so many pedophile rape allegations it's not even funny, but yet everyone continues to doubt the allegations and no one is behind bars. It's so sad.

Considering that a lot of the things that get viral are stupid shit, hell no. I tend not to even hear about that stuff until they become viral.
