1- Bhupendra Jogi

Earning the title of India’s most searched meme in 2023, Bhupendra Jogi took the Internet by storm during October and November. It traces back to November 2018 when a journalist came across a man who claimed that the roads in Madhya Pradesh were better than those in America. During the interview, the journalist asked the man to name a few places he had visited in the US, but instead of answering the question, the man responded by stating his own name. This hilarious exchange gave birth to a viral meme that is still popular with netizens.

You are not alone if you have found yourself humming ‘Moye Moye’ recently. The meme has been gaining significant traction for the past few months and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The videos on this meme show people reacting to different situations and doing ‘Moye Moye’ dance.

The meme has its origin in the chorus of the song Džanum by Serbian singer-songwriter Teya Dora. Dora sings Moye More in the song, but people have mistaken it for ‘Moye Moye’. Unlike the viral comedy reels, the song is about longing, pain and rejection.

Uorfi Javed and Dolly Singh recently hopped on the Moye Moye trend. Expectedly, it has gone viral.

This meme made everyone laugh throughout the year. The meme is used to express the classic ‘what?’ moment. The meme originated from an interview with a sixth-grade student named Aditya Kumar from Bihar. When the reporter asked Kumar about his favourite subject, he responded with ‘ayein’. When the reporter repeated the question, Aditya answered ‘Baigan’. The meme became very popular and was searched the most in Delhi, followed by Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, and Odisha.

This meme has caused quite a stir online, as it humorously displays one’s true abilities or status.
