Memes are constantly changing, they are no longer just a popular image with some text written above and below. As of 2019 they have transcended that concept and are no longer limited to a singular form. A meme could be a video, an image, a tweet, a Snapchat or any other kind of media so long as it resonates with and reaches a large enough group of people. Below are some of the funniest memes we’ve identified so far in 2019 with the help of xZeitgeist.com.

I'm sharing my #crazy #tiktok #video also here. More than 4 kg #gummybears singing #someonelikeyou by @adele, 5 hours work on my knees 😂, 5 milion views on TikTok and 4 milion views on #Twitter during 2 days. #Amazing! #ThankYou! #viral #meme #concert #followme #funny @haribo_deutschland @haribofr_officiel @tiktokofficials @tiktok
This meme is just as hilarious as it is strange. It started as a TikTok video that pans over a sea of gummy bears while Adele’s “Someone Like You” plays in the background and has now taken on a life of its own with people creating videos with a sea of gummy bears and/or Adele’s “Someone Like You” playing in the background.

AirPod Memes really hit the mainstream around Christmas time when many people received AirPods as gifts. AirPod memes are usually about AirPods users being rich or people that do not use AirPods being poor.

Dialogue memes are a classic and seeing a resurgence in 2019. They are simply text of a dialogue two people have with it oftentimes being a strange or humorous exchange.
Birdbox, the Netflix movie that became a massive hit, also became a meme. The meme typically includes some screenshot of the movie that includes the characters being blindfolded and text that relates somehow to being blindfolded.
