What Do You Meme? is the ultimate party game for anyone who lives on the internet. Created in 2016 by the same people behind @f***jerry, the card game asks players to match the silly caption cards in their hand with meme cards. It’s like Cards Against Humanity, but it uses memes instead of a lexical prompt.
Recently, both Instagram and TikTok debuted What Do You Meme filters that quickly became viral hits. One of the filters — the TikTok version — shuffles a deck of caption cards until it lands on a card that, according to TikTok users, proves that the FBI is always watching you because it’s so scarily accurate.
The other filter — the Instagram version — gives you a few captions, each of which you then have only a few seconds to react to. Every time you react, the filter creates your own version of a What Do You Meme card.
Below, we’ve outlined how to use both What Do You Meme filters.
