The Nyan Cat crosses borders and has its own event in New York: # NYANCATCITY
Successful as Nyan Cat meme is undisputed in the “Internet ecosystem”, to call it somehow. But that success has slowly begun to emerge from its borders, first with the arrival of the official soundtrack of the cat to iTunes , and now with the event #NYANCATCITY in the city of New York (the acronym you drop like a glove).
This event lasts four days, ends tomorrow December 16, and was organized no less than by the Art Department of the City of New York with Chris Torres, creator of the famous cat. In # NYANCATCITYla idea is to celebrate “the creativity and influence of web culture”.
The event will bring together artists and celebrities of various types, including George Costanza DJ (!), But also of frivolities and after parties, there will be room for more benevolent type activities, such as promoting the adoption of kittens together the office of the mayor in charge of the issue. And to close, on Sunday there will be a contest that will award the best costume who have a meme of 2012. Will have to see the pictures of those costumes.
With this the Nyan Cat is confirmed as one of the most important phenomena that have left internet (which is not an understatement), including a full line of merchandise that is already quite popular in other places.# NYANCATCITY, Chris Torres, meme, Nyan Cat
