We are YEY, YEY INVESTMENTS or THE MEME GUYS. We are a couple of friends, Axel Kirsinger and Alex Sante. We are independent toys designers from Chile. We are fans of internet jokes and memes. We love the world wide free cultural exchange, and since years we have been enjoying those virtual experiences.
One thing is clear, internet culture is global. Everybody, everywhere, with an internet connection has seen memes. All of us are creating a global culture, sharing the same graphic and iconic language... Now we want to get them into our real life.
Our Work with memes:
We want to bring an object that rescues the virtual culture and allows the people to interact with others. We want to replicate internet experiences into the real life. We choose collective art toys as the proper object, due to the playful nature of memes.
Our first two models are Trollface and Forever Alone. We choose them because of two reasons: First: Their popularity, Second: They are antagonistic characters. Memes are manufactured with high quality eco-friendly vinyl, its a very nice size 6,7in (17cm)
Where your money is going
If we reach our goal:
We will be able to produce a limited edition line of meme figures based on the meme's most popular characters. We will start the production of our first two models and finish the prototype of our four new collectible figures, Me Gusta, Okey, Yao Ming, and LOL.
The funds raised will go towards:
- The high costs of producing toy's moulds
- Materials and units production
- Shipping and handling cost
- Additional perks
The users, beside to get an awesome reward for your support, will experiment how the meme culture and user reactions traspases the virtual space and the virilization of information complete the circle going back to the internet. Just think, toys are the representation of internet characters. Then you will take a picture of your toys and share in internet again, creating new content from the real world, its very interesting landmark in culture communication. The impact of getting this project funded is huge.What you get:
HOT EARLY BIRD PERKS.
