Level 13
UPDATE
Winners Announcement: http://rog.asus.com/articles/events/rog-forum-battleground---battle-4-winners-announced/

The winners announcement for Battle of the VR Memes will be posted up on ROG website on Jan 15th

Since this last battle was heavily affected due to the Holidays, we'll be extending the deadline to January 5th until 11:59pm (GMT/UTC +8 - Taiwan time)

Merry Christmas and happy Holidays from everyone here at ASUS ROG!

Finally we bring you the last battle! We wanted to finish off this campaign with a really interesting topic, and nothing would be more fitting than the very hot topic of VR. There’s no better way to show your thoughts about VR than through a meme. Let the meme battles begin!

I came up with my own little VR meme, hope you like it! - It appears some part of the meme is cut off since I can't resize with vBulletin

Original source: Shutterstock

For bonus points, please also share your idea behind your meme or about VR itself.

Battle of the VR Memes officially starts on December 22, 2016 at whenever this post is live and will end on January 5, 2017 at 11:59pm (GMT+8).

Here's my entry for now:


I got this idea when I saw how cheap VR boxes are for phones, then I figured that VR headsets must be cheap as well. And then I saw the prices and I realized that I might just end up with a poor man's VR headset.

Thanks for posting this but for it to qualify as a valid entry you must have text inside the picture, text in the comment doesn't won't and doesn't make it a valid meme. Right I see a normal GIF and obviously no editing was put into this.
