Top 10 memes from the future that will confuse you

Have you seen a meme that does not make any sense? That is memes from the future. As you already know, meme creators can get their inspiration anywhere, from the past, present and apparently, the future.

The question is, can anyone see the future? It depends on the future you are talking about. If it has to do with where you project yourself in a few years, based on what you are now, it is possible. But if it is making random projections out of nowhere, you are on your own.

So, what does meme from the future mean? Read this article to find out.

What are memes from the future?

According to HITC, memes from the future are a joke with an image that makes zero sense, insinuating the only reason people do not find them funny yet is because it is from the future. Memes from the future origin can be traced to Reddit user, DanknessIn_MemesOut, who posted the original version in 2016.

The post showed a yellow-tinted image of an old man being attacked by three multi-coloured mini-versions of himself. The text read: “This meme is from the future. You don’t get the reference yet.”

Of course, the meme made no sense, which is the point. However, the reference to the future was somewhat right as different versions began to trend a few days later. Some memes from the future came from 42069 and on a ‘meme of the month chart’ for the same year. Since then, people have created memes that make no sense and tagged them as memes from the future.

One of the most popular varieties of the memesis the meta Reddit meme, “Among Us”. It is a multiplayer online game created and released by Innersloth. The 2D co-op game is popular among Android users and has risen to the top of the Play Store’s most-played list.
