The Globglogabgalab is a gelatin worm like human creature featured in the film Strawinsky and the Mysterious House, directed by David Hutter in 2012. The Globglogabgalab sings about his love for books in an effort by the creators to influence children to read.

During February 2018 when a clip of the Globglogabgalab was posted on Youtube by user “durbeyfield,” it gained a view count of 3,000,000 within the first month of its upload. The film, and specifically the Globglogabgalab, picked up popularity due to the abnormal shape of the Globglogabgalab and poor animation quality of the film. Following its success, from there, countless remixes of his song were reposted where he found even more popularity among meme culture.

My intial reaction to seeing the the Globglogabgalab was confusion and amusement. The nonsense words only made to fill time in the song further increased both of those emotions. The reason the Globglogabgalab appeals to so many is because of the meme culture of today being mostly centered around strange, and or poor quality things, with little context or background information. Most of the time the memes that become more successful also cause confusion, but can be found amusing for those reasons.

Since the Globglogabgalab contains all of those things made it no doubt an easy target for the meme audience to indulge in and take their own creative spin on it. But all memes die, usually within a span of a few months of their popularity, and the Globglogabgalab is already winding down the slow descent that all memes eventually take, to die.
