2010 was the year of the Celebrity Photoshop Meme. It seemed like anybody with a Tumblr account was busy putting cutouts ordinary famous people into pics of extraordinary situations. Several already famous TV and movie stars added "internet famous" to their resumés, and this category celebrates them.
Michael Cera was already considered the most twee of twenty-something celebrities, after playing cutesy roles in movies like Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, so a photo of Cera literally prancing across a couple of wooden boxes sealed the deal. His child-sized red beanie and his silly light-green pants only add to the pixie-like quality of Cera's leap.
Most of the Prancing Cera images involved puns replacing "dance" with "prance," but quite a few also showed Cera shopped into other celebrity meme pics, helping his prancing antics spread to the farthest reaches of the web.
Leave it to the internet to turn a touching scene from one of the best shows on TV into a goofy meme. Sad Don Draper takes a screenshot from one of the few times Mad Men's Don Draper cried -- brilliantly played by Jon Hamm -- and puts the weeping face in front of every sad situation you can think of.
Bambi's mom dying? Sad Don Draper. That one episode of Futurama with Fry's old dog? Sad Don Draper. James Van Der Beek bawling like an infant? Sad Don Draper. He's an all-purpose meme for our most depressing times.
Sad Keanu was the celebrity photoshop meme that started it all. Keanu Reeves looking sad on a bench with a sandwich spun out into Keanu Reeves looking sad ... well, pretty much anywhere. Whether he was moping around in the backgrounds of other photos or sharing his seat with others in the original photo, Sad Keanu seemed to be everywhere on the internet at once.
Jersey Shore's Snooki is a bit of a staff favorite here at Urlesque. Her small size and bright orange coloring make her perfect for crashing any kind of group shot. You can play "Where's Snooki?" with a Where's Waldo? page, you can hide Snooki on the cover of Sgt. Pepper, or you can just put her in your pocket. Snooki Crasher: just the right size for all your crasher meme needs!
Inception, Leonardo DiCaprio went even deeper into the internet's collective psyche when someone released a pic showing him strutting along on the set of the movie, looking as happy as Keanu looked sad. Naturally, Strutting Leo went viral.
Strutting Leo can be used in many ways. Some folks decided he was the new Disaster Girl, casually walking away from huge explosions. Others just shopped him into scenes from other movies, ranging from The Matrix to Zoolander to the Beatles' Help!
Honorable Mention: Jumping Rob
