Comedian Patton Oswalt must have spent some of his Valentine's day jamming out to the song, because he celebrated the year's most romantic day by starting a new meme!

The meme took on a life of its own—long after Oswalt stopped tweeting, his fans continued the legacy he began.



It's hard to explain why this meme works so well...but it really does.



When humanity is dead and gone, hopefully a future civilization finds this meme to explain what we're really about.

You would think in this age of modern society and seemingly faster-than-light information sharing, we'd see the reaped rewards of sharing positive information with one another. Tales of a better world, filled with people doing their best to help one another.

Then you read stories like these and it's hard not to think we're all maybe a little deserving of it.

That's obviously not the right line of thinking, and you should always do what you can to help someone out once a day, but wow. Some people suck.
