YTMND Weekly #11: Rebecca Black Gets PWND

I've actually got quite a few people wondering WTF YTMNDS actually are; short for "You're the man now Dog," the first YTMND was a marriage of sound, text, and image that conveyed the ridiculousness of THIS SCENE (and more specifically Sean Connery) from Finding Forrester.

There have been hundreds of thousands of YTMNDS created; since the conversion to flash, video was introduced to the medium and added some much needed depth. Think of them as animated inside jokes that often riff on pop culture or internet fads.

YTMNDs are about to become way more accessible thanks to Adobe and Apple finally getting together and allowing all of Apple's mobile devices to use Flash.
