We Found The Creator Of The Sad Kermit Meme And She's Got A Vault Of Kermit Memes
The Finnish teen told BuzzFeed News all the memes make her "feel very happy."
By now, you've seen this photo of a Kermit puppet with its knees folded in, inspiring what some people are calling the "saddest meme in the world."
The puppet has brought out some the most devastatingly honest, and depressingly existential, musings on the internet.
In no more than three days, the forlorn Kermit puppet — and derivative memes — was everywhere. People have even found the puppet in other hilariously intricate positions. A lot of people are wondering who in the world is spending their precious time doing this.
Who in the world? That would be 17-year-old Pinja Savolainen from Finland. The teen told BuzzFeed News the Kermit doll is actually her mother's, and it was purchased "years ago" at a flea market in Finland.
Which led us back to (not to be hyperbolic but) the GOAT thread that took place in early September. Savolainen snapped the photo of her mom's old Kermit puppet, and allowed her followers to "request memes."
At the time, she said she didn't get many requests from her followers so she just let her own imagination run wild.
"I just had these random ideas coming in my head one after another and that's pretty much how all the different scenarios were born," she said.
