Overly Attached Girlfriend is a meme featuring a screen capture from a webcam. The picture is of a girl and various captions portraying her in the stereotype of an overprotective and clingy girlfriend.
On June 6th, 2012, (the 68th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy) YouTuber wzr0713 uploaded a webcam video titled “JB Fanvideo” in which she performs a parody rendition of Justin Bieber’s latest single Boyfriend with personalized lyrics. At the time of the writing of this article, that video has 16.8 million views on YouTube. Please, go watch it, it’s about as entertaining as watching paint dry.
The next day (June 7th) it was all over Reddit and another annoying meme was born!
Once again the internet in a spectacular example of mirroring the lack of originality in Hollywood, the Overly Attached Girlfriend meme is nearly identical to an older meme series known as Crazy Girlfriend Praying Mantis. Although to be fair, the psychotic stare of wzr0713 captured in the screenshot is far more hilarious than the decapitated head of a praying mantis.
So, in honor of Overly Attached Girlfriend turning two years old, here are some of its best examples culled from around the depths of the worldwide interwebs.
Now, try not to see that face when you close your eyes tonight at bedtime. Good luck!
