The content cure

When it comes to viral content of the worst kind, you need a good meme to make it better…

Every now and again, a song comes along that is truly traumatising to the eardrums. It happened last year with Rebecca Black’s abomination (we dare not write the name of the song lest it become stuck in your head for another week) and, further back in history, it happened with Hanson’s Mmmm Bop, a song with one of the most mindless titles in history.
