Meme Of The Week 9-9

This week’s meme is Sleeveface

The Back Story: Sleeveface (aka “LP Portraits”) is a participatory/DIY internet meme similar to money face. The meme became popular in early 2008 after a group of Welsh DJs and vinyl collectors uploaded a “how-to make a sleeveface” video on YouTube:

Although the how to video sparked the internet trend, the Welsh DJs are not credited for creation of the concept as images of people doing this date back to the 60s. The DJs are only credited for the resurgence of the style.

The set up: Take the sleeve of a record and hold it up trying to line up the body parts then snap the pic.
