The Overly Attached Girlfriend Meme Turns Two Years Old!


lap edition 8

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.

About Jack DeVoss (77 Articles)
Jackson Holden Solo DeVoss learned how to write poems from an old blind man he met while incarcerated in a Madagascan prison for crime he did not commit. After serving three long hard years, Solo was finally paroled when a wealthly lady friend paid the ransom for his release. Solo then traveled to a Shaolin monastery located high in the mountains of Myanmar; where he learned the mastery of many mystical and ancient arts from the Head Abbot, a crippled monk named Brother Lars who quoted Oscar Wilde too often. Two years later, Brother Lars and most of the other monks were killed - during an attack that was carried out under the cover of a horrendous snowstorm by ninja assassins of the Dark Hand Cult. Solo and a few others escaped, but the monastery was burnt to the ground. After slumming around Southeast Asia for five years, Solo migrated back to his home in the United States - where he became a vigilante crimefighter, fighting against the nefarious schemes of the Dark Hand Cult and its ninja assassins. He also published his first book, 'Names For Boys And Girls' and a collection of poems entitled 'Columbus Lost Another Genius'. Solo now lives in an abandoned church in Columbus, Ohio where he writes freelance, fights crime, and has a major drinking problem.

  1. Thank God I’m married….
    People like this actually exist?
    (Forget it, I know the answer already.)


  2. The scary thing about memes is, there’s an element of truth in them… like this series. Been there. *shiver*

    “Hi there! Welcome to the Internet!
    My name is Wendy. I’ll be your stalker this week.”


  4. I had a doll that looked like her when I was little.
    Now I know why I kept wanting to yank her head off.


  5. Poor kitty 😦


  6. She’ll stop at nothing. Fatal Attraction for the Internet except with cats, apparently.


  7. Teenagers don’t have a chance these days with the internet.


  8. Those eyeballs mannn – they’re given me the creeps. Reminds me of that Runaway Bride person from ages ago.

    Poor girl. If he still hasn’t proposed two years later, then she is doomed.


  10. That was an inspired piece of black humor!


  11. I’m not sure how I have gotten through 2 years without seeing any of this! That girl has scary, spooky eyes. I wouldn’t be closing mine around her.
