Another iconic meme has cemented itself in viral history and it's all thanks to Vanessa from 'EastEnders'...
2018 is starting to draw to a close and it's safe to say that it's been a wild ride on the meme front. Over the past 10 and a bit months, we have been blessed with countless, iconic viral moments. It's already hard to imagine life before the 'weird flex but ok' meme (hilarious), the Miley Cyrus staring into your soul meme (this one is art) and the big dick energy meme (if you've got it, you've got it).
However, some of the funniest memes this year have been made from videos both old and new. From the 'You guys are in a crisis' meme (hilarious) to the 'How convenient is that?' meme (genius), the internet has been immortalising everything from memorable Supernanny scenes to Cardi B's Instagram stories. And now people are using EastEnders as inspiration.
Check out the best 'HOW LONG?!!!' memes below.
Anyone from the UK will already know that EastEnders is one of the biggest soap operas of all time. Ever since it first aired in 1985, viewers have been obsessed with its dramatic scenes and wild storylines. Taking all of this into consideration, it's no surprise that it translates perfectly into meme content and no EastEnders character is more meme-able than Vanessa Gold.
Played by the brilliant Zöe Lucker, Vanessa is already a meme queen (that gif of the angry white lady screaming is Vanessa) but it's the 'HOW LONG?!!!' meme that is currently breaking the internet. It's taken from a scene in which Vanessa realises that she is being cheated on and screams 'HOW LONG?!!!'. People are applying it to everyday situations and it's genius.
Here are just a few of the most hilarious 'HOW LONG?!!!' memes.
