For instance, have you heard of SNAKES ON A PLANE?
What started as a strange soon-to-come action film with Samuel Jackson has grown into a funny worldwide Internet Meme phenomenon thanks to a certain Josh Friedman, who posted about the upcoming film in his blog. Some have even gone so far as to incorporate S.o.a.P. (Snakes on a Plane) as a replacement for "Sh!t happens" and the like. Even unofficial t-shirt designs, rpgs, music and trailers have sprung onto the internet for this film which no one has really seen yet!
