Happy birthday Nyan Cat! Try not to get annoyed revisiting the iconic meme
Nyan Cat, or Pop Tart Cat as he was once known, has officially turned ten years old as of today, marking ten years of rainbow-filled joy.
This rainbow loving feline was first introduced to us through a YouTube video posted by artist Christopher Torres on April 5th, 2011. The cat was soon christened as a meme and renamed Nyan Cat due to the pairing of the cat with the Japanese song “Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!” in his debut video.
To mark the occasion, Twitter has brought forward some amazing memes and comments, not only celebrating Nyan Cat but also showcasing some notable moments in his ten year history.
So let’s grab some Pop Tarts and check out these hilarious memes celebrating ten years of Nyan Cat on the internet.
