All hail Bongo Cat.
All hail Bongo Cat, the latest meme from the depths of Twitter. It’s all in the name, really. Bongo Cat started life as a gif of a cat (made by Twitter user @StrayRogue) slapping his little paws down on a table, as if to play the bongos, which is exactly what Twitter user @DitzyFlam did.

The internet wasted absolutely no time in applying Bongo Cat to more and more ridiculous parodies. There’s an assortment of classic rock songs to enjoy, complete with visual effects.

There’s also a parody of “We Are Number One” from the kids show LazyTown.

Of course, a meme wouldn’t be complete without plenty of video game music parodies, and Bongo Cat has plenty to choose from. Here’s some of the best.

There’s also a song from the weird anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures.

And then, of course, there’s the really weird, meme-within-a-meme material. First up on the block is this parody of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
