Is "Breakdancing Vegeta" a meme?

I know probably a lot of people have seen this gif on Daizenshuu, Breakdancing Vegeta dances the exact same as the breakdanceing bear but of course it's Vegeta dancing.

Never really considered it a meme as much as just a funny image I see here and there.

Well if we go here to the Internet Meme Database and do a search for 'Vegeta' (http://knowyourmeme.com/search/memes?ut ... 3&q=vegeta) that .gif is nowhere to be seen lol.

In all seriousness, no I would not call that a meme.

I wasn't trying to be an ass, I was just mildly surprised that this could have been a meme. :/

If you have to ask, it probably isn't.
Kentai wrote:Son Gokuu is a fascinating character anyway, because he is - at face value, anyway - an idiot savant. The victim of violent head trauma as an infant [...] he's a simple bumpkin with a fair share of brain damage who's natural talents to work out what's wrong compensate for his broad lack of common sense. But he's also a fighter, through and through [...] he fight until he has, in no uncertain terms, beaten his enemy on terms they can both acknowledge. He doesn't want to kill anyone, or even prove that he can win... he just wants to know he can. He's an ineffably charming bastard who's manly leanings were really incendental, and yes, the fact that he was voiced by a squeaky woman made the combination perhaps all the more charming.

So no one has ever seen the DBZ parody called DucktaleZ 3?

That's where it originates from(in the ending credits).

There's two basic things that determine whether something is an Internet meme.

1: It gets posted all over the Internet so often that it's hard to avoid seeing it.
2: It's not funny. Or, at least, it's not funny anymore (if it was ever funny to begin with) because dumb people have driven it 60 miles into the ground.

Breakdancing Vegeta isn't all over the Internet as far as I've seen (this is the first time I've seen it), and it's kinda funny to see Vegeta breakdancing, so... it's not a meme, I guess.

He didn't say breakdancing Vegeta wasn't funny, what he meant was most memes aren't really amusing because they're over used (ironically, just like over 9000).
