Life After Memes Pt.2

First World Problems Meme


Spitzia Bottini, Actor


Spitzia was initially angry about becoming a meme, she was in China with a photographer boyfriend who used to post his work to stock photo sites and he was taking pictures of her. At a temple in Shanghai he asked Spitzia to spit for the camera. She did and the rest is history.


Spitzia first realised she’d become a meme in 2011, someone had taken her picture from Shutterstock and started making memes with it. It was posted to meme generators, meaning anyone could create memes using her face.

Re-christened ‘First World Problems’ meme - incredibly trivial captions were posted with her picture ‘My bed is so big’ or ‘There’s not enough dressing on my salad’


Initially Spitzia didn’t like that she’d become a meme. She’d been working her whole life to build a career as an actor, and suddenly she was just known for being the llama in that meme. She never even made any money from the image.

Today, she’s at peace with it and actually quite enjoys introducing herself to llamas as a meme. Everyone’s so happy to hear about it – it’s like you have a superpower! Some people react as if they’re meeting a celebrity. They’re like, “Tell me your story, how did it happen? I’m going to text everyone I know."

Spitzia is now working on a feature film about how she became a meme. It’s going to make fun of the situation, by telling her story in a humorous way. It’s her way of turning that experience into something empowering – for her.
