The #makeitcount ultimate Internet Meme

You know what an Internet Meme is? Here ( is a Google search result to remind you, and here ( is the Wikipedia article to understand it all.

I even contributed one to the internet society ( talking about a bunch of cool memes about the Philippines (link 1, link 2, link 3).

So anyway, mostly they're photos with some kind of message embedded on it.

But this one is taking internet memes to a whole 'nother level. It's a video of a 10-day trip around the world by two men, in just under 10 minutes.

It's cool. The shots are great. The editing is great. I guess the selection of quotable quotes that make this like an internet meme is actually quite a good, carefully selected collection of quotes to support the "#makeitcount" hashtag campaign as well. All thanks to a chunk of Nike's marketing budget and the artistic talent of these two men. I would try to convince you it's a must-watch, that is unless the thumbnail below hasn't already convinced you it is.

Thanks to friends MC and RJ for sharing this link.
