为了使某种模因成为模因，它必须相当快地传播，以便在文化中扎根。 韩国流行歌手PSY的“江南风格”歌曲的视频举例说明了由于多种因素，网络模因如何快速传播。 在这种情况下，YouTube视频被广泛共享（一度是网站上观看次数最多的视频）。 基于原始视频的模仿视频，反响视频和图像模因的创建使它脱颖而出。 该视频在2012年发布后的几天内就开始传播病毒。两年后，该视频的传播力被认为“破坏了” YouTube计数器，而该计数器并未经过编程来说明如此高的观看次数。 使用道金斯的标准，很明显复制忠实度和繁殖力之间存在联系，传播速度是事物传播的速度。 同样很明显，技术能力与两者都有很大关系。
In order for a meme to be a meme, it must spread fairly quickly in order to take root in culture. The video of the Korean pop singer PSY’s “Jiangnan Style” song illustrates how the network memes can spread quickly due to a variety of factors. In this case, YouTube videos are widely shared (the one that was once the most viewed on the site). Based on the original video’s imitation video, the creation of reverberant video and image memes makes it stand out. The video began spreading the virus within a few days of its release in 2012. Two years later, the video’s power was thought to “broken” the YouTube counter, which was not programmed to account for such high views. Using the standards of Dawkins, it is clear that there is a link between copying loyalty and fertility, and the speed of propagation is the speed at which things travel. It is also clear that technical capabilities have a lot to do with both.
