If you have a Facebook account, then you have certainly seen at least one Be like Bill meme. The Be Like Bill memes have gone viral in the last weeks. Apparently, they started to appear late last year, but they needed some time to become famous and appealing to millions of users.
These memes mostly name the human behaviors that annoy a lot of people, especially the social media ones. Bill is the perfect human being. He doesn’t tell everyone it’s snowing outside when it’s obvious to everyone, he doesn’t get into pointless debates with trolls and he doesn’t brag about having a girlfriend daily.
According to BBC, the memes have become so popular lately because of the Facebook page that it’s called Be Like Bill, which has over 1.5 million likes. The person who created the Bill memes and Bill’s Facebook page is a Moldovan man based in Italy, called Eugeniu Croitoru. Croitoru stated that Bill is every person who doesn’t do annoying things and who has a lot of common sense. The creator of Bill also said that it is important to know that Bill makes jokes about other persons, but he also makes a lot of jokes about himself as well. Apparently, Debabrata Nath helped Croitoru make the Be Like Bill memes. The idea of the Facebook page for the Bill memes belongs to Croitoru, who got the idea when he posted some very similar memes on his Videogamemes page. The memes posted there were very popular, so he decided to take things to another level.
People seem to really like these memes, and they have started to personalize the existing memes, by replacing the name Bill with their own names when the meme describes a situation on which they very much agree. If you would like to do that with your own name or your friends names, there is a name generator that will help you. Don’t exaggerate though, as some people tend to get annoyed at these types of things. The meme creator called Be Like Me by Blobla is now very popular, mainly because people can replace Bill with any name they like under the sun.
The Be Like Bill memes have gone viral in the last weeks. As many people are starting to get annoyed at these memes, if you are one of them keep in mind that this will shortly pass, as any viral thing does.
