This meme is based on a viral video in which two “characters” (both played by the same man) are having a conversion, one says to the other that he has various brands of expensive shoes, in response the second character bursts into a song which has the following lyrics : “why the fuck you lying ? Why you always lying ? Oh my god ! Stop your fucking lying !”.
This meme originated from an Instagram video made by famous vine user nicholas fraser. The video title was everybody knows that one person that’s always lying on what they own and it was posted on 29th august 2015 to nicholas fraser’s Instagram account.
Due to the popularity of the original video, nicholas created a full length version which he uploaded to his youtube account on 14th September 2015.
The main use of this meme is to mix the vine with another video which comes before it, the first video usually has someone saying something which is ridiculous and which makes them seem like they are obviously lying, after that the “why you always lying” vine is played in order to show the re-mixers thoughts on the first video.
This meme was one of the most popular memes in 2015, the reason for this I believe is the ability for the re-mixers to create relatable scenarios which have occurred to most people at least once in their life, it is this ability that makes this meme so funny as so many people (regardless of their life and upbringing) can laugh and relate to the scenarios created in the remixes.
I rate this meme 9/10 as it is as funny as it is relatable.
