Loved by Kim Jones, Paris Hilton, and Diplo, Super Slutty Snake has taking over the meme world with their starter packs like “That Playboy from that country that I’m not allowed to name” to “Wealthy Brazilian Man on European Holiday” and now dropping merch. When I was a student, I wasn’t taught about creating memes during career day, so it’s about time that I learn a thing or two and pick the brain of Super Slutty Snake.

You recently launched a line. Did you imagine that when you came up with the name Super Slutty Snake? And tell us the story behind the name, sounds juicy!

To be completely honest, this whole “project” started as an innocent drunken bet between friends and has now snowballed into something mind-blowing. Any clothing I have released up until now has been merchandise, however in the very near future I will be launching my bonafide clothing line. So, the story behind the name is maybe not as juicy as you would think. I originally wanted to call the account ‘Society Snake’ but that name was already taken. Then, as if possessed by a wise and omniscient spirit, a thought entered my mind that would alter the course of history: “slutty snake”. NO, already taken. At this point, I’m like “fuck this shit” BUT THENNN the oracle-esque spirit re-penetrated my brain and blessed me with the brainwave ‘Super Slutty Snake’. It wasn’t taken, and the name sounds like a snake hissing when you say it. Conclusion: I’m a geniusss.


Defining geniuss for this decade! You have been dubbed the High Society Memeologist. Was that a lifetime goal or dream? Were you a weird fringe internet kid growing up and was it always clout based?

HAHAHAHA, definitely not. As a young boy, I would dream of being an actor or pop-star like Michael Jackson then that transitioned into me having the pipe dream that I could be a rapper like Dre or Eminem; alas here I am making silly memes. I was a bit of a lonely kid but I wouldn’t say I was fringe or weird. I always wanted to be somebody and I guess in some messed up way I have gained some sort of notoriety.


Famous without a face is a new life goal. I can tell you a lot about the fashion world, but what are somethings you can tell me about the Meme world? Any early inspirations? First foray into internet culture?

I think I was a born comedian. My mom always told me that since I was super young I was imitating the whole family being an annoying little asshole, so I guess meme life was destiny to some degree. I am extremely inspired by South Park which is undisputedly my favorite show of all time, also Sacha Baron Cohen’s stuff is phenomenal. The meme world is extremely tough and VERY time-consuming, especially because I stupidly decided to start writing these long captions and now that’s my cross to bear. This world is cut-throat, intense, pleasure-draining, and disheartening; BUT when you are on a roll it’s the best feeling ever.


What meme would you like to be most remembered by? Do you consider yourself to be an artist?

I would say that my memeology is an art-form to some degree, especially when I spend 3 hours photoshopping tiny floral bouquets onto chickens. The meme I am most proud of is probably the Burning Man social hierarchy; that one is talked about a lot.


I’m from Seattle and we need some good Amazon memes, not that I want to tear them down, but I do. If I looked at your calendar, is all of your content scheduled, or do you like to drop them like their hot?

In all seriousness, I have never ever scheduled a post. I usually do them an hour before I post, or if by some miracle I’m organized then maybe the morning of the day I post. I think it is important that my page comes across as off the cuff and natural; I don’t want to seem corporate or try-hard. Sometimes inspiration strikes me at the weirdest moments and I grab for my iPhone and meme.


You must have a sixth sense for this digital age. What causes something to go viral?

That’s the million/billion-dollar question. I would say to command virality obviously you need to produce something that has mass-market appeal and that corresponds to a current socio-economic/political/cultural theme. A lot of my stuff doesn’t go “viral” because it is niche humor and often I like it that way. I want my page to be educational to some degree and if I went mass-market each time then I would just be another Fuck Jerry clone.


I like my evil little niche laughs than being told to when to laugh at something for commercial appeal for sure. Were you supposed to go viral with a celebrity fanbase?

Absolutely not. I still remember at the very beginning when I would post to a disloyal fanbase of 10 followers and get 2 likes if I was lucky. Then one day Cara Delevingne liked a post and followed and I believe the rest was history from there.


What trends are memes heading into now?

Wow, tough one. I truly believe that memeing is becoming too insincere and incestuous. By that, I mean that people just steal other people’s content and re-package it with their watermark. I have tried to make a point of producing 100% original content and adding value by writing ridiculously long, fucked up captions to entertain people. Mememing at the top level means carving your own niche, playing to your strengths, and consistently producing hilarious original content. The next trend I guess would be more video-based memes, maybe animation. Keep your eyes peeled on my page, I have a lot of exciting things coming up.


Who do you follow?

 @modelwhisperer – only. It is my second account and it’s awesome, go follow.


I’m based in Paris. What would be a go-to French meme?

I used to live in Paris, so…. Cigarettes for sure, sitting cross-legged at a generic cafe/bistro in the Marais or 16eme. Raspoutine, L’Avenue, Ferdi. Looking miserable at the front row of the LV fashion show. Hotel Costes courtyard, featuring the bitchiest hostesses of all time. L’Ami Louis also when it’s time to stuff your face, then throw it all up after. “Bah ouais, breffff. Tranquille. Genre.”
