The shooting stars meme was a meme that came from a song made in 2008. It's a meme today because it became fairly popular on the internet and people wanted it as a meme.
People have been wanting to find out where this meme came from? Well I can tell you.
WHY DID PEOPLE CHOOSE FALLING OUT OF ALL THINGS?
Apparently, this meme includes people falling. Why was that chosen? Apparently, in an episode of the famous anime Naruto , A flashback is shown. In the flashback, some bullies take Inachi (I forget his name)'s dog, Potchi, and rename it 'Shooting Star'. When Inachi finds them on the bridge, he demands for the bullies to give Potchi back. The bullies remark that he is now 'Shooting Star' and hold it up to the water and throw Potchi in. Sounds familiar? Not only did they rename him 'Shooting Star', they threw him in the ocean! Sounds like 'Fat man takes an awesome dive', where a fat man dives in water and that is a shooting stars meme!
WHAT IS THE SONG?
The song is an instrumental version of 'Techno Love' by the Bag Raiders.
