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

When we think of VR youtubers we all think of Pewdiepie and Pewdiepie's VR videos are all meme worthy so I decided to pick Pewdiepie for the meme, we also know that Pewdipie's VR videos can get quite sexual and what's the most sexual meme around here? of course it's the "5 minutes into _____ and chill and he gives you this look" so this is the idea behind my meme.
That feels when you don't have a budget for a VR-capable PC and HMD. I just made the Google cardboard from my keyboard's box long time ago (when Google released their printable layout). A high-end 2014 phone is good enough to give a peek of VR, but not as immersive as PC's. And yes, that's a mosquito swatter.
