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

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

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

So here's my meme submission. To begin with, I do not own any VR device so I don't really know if VR users would find this meme funny or what. But yeah, I just made one! 🙂 I just imagined it like this. 😄

The idea behind this is that everything looks so cool and you feel awesome when you are playing a game in VR, but what's happening in real life is you look kind of silly and you're bumping into things and potentially tripping over your furniture when you get too carried away into your VR experience. So just thought it would be a funny sort of irony to exaggerate with VR being represented by one of the coolest scenes in movie history with the person playing VR feeling like he/she is as cool as Neo in the Matrix, and then contrasting that with the bumbling and clumsy Chevy Chase character in the classic SNL show representing what the player actually looks like in real life.

Sources: I did a Google search for images and these were the among the first results for my searches. The images came from the following two websites.
Matrix Pic: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2222541/Lana-Wachowski-Transgender-Matrix-director-chil...
Chevy Chase in SNL pic: http://www.third-beat.com/2013/11/19/illustrated-history-snl-castmembers-injuring-podiums-playing-po...

I didn't look at anyone else's Meme's before posting this so apologies if somebody already posted something like this.
