    2015 State of the Union Address was the annual presidential speech delivered by the United States President Barack Obama to a joint session of the 114th U.S. Congress at the House of Representatives chamber on January 20th, 2015.

    Background

    On January 20th, 2015, President Obama delivered his last annual State of the Union Address as the incumbent leader of the United States, which was broadcast on television and livestreamed online. During the speech, Obama discussed a wide range of governmental agendas and initiatives to tackle issues and concerns at home and overseas, such as the revitalization of the American economy, containment of extremist terrorist groups like the Islamic State (IS) and easier access to higher education programs, as well as a new tax policy on the Wall Street.



    Notable Developments

    Improvised Quip

    Obama momentarily deviated from the speech script after receiving applause from Republicans for saying he had “no more campaigns to run,” adding “I know, because I won both of them” (shown below).



    Proud Joe Biden

    During the address, a screen capture of Joe Biden wearing a smug facial expression began circulating on Twitter (shown below).



    That day, Viner Dorsey Shaw uploaded a clip of Biden making the proud-looking face, which received upwards of 290,000 plays within 24 hours (shown below). That evening BuzzFeed[2] published a compilation of “Proud Joe Biden” tweets.

    Bread Bag Story

    Following the address, Republican Senator Joni Ernst delivered the GOP rebuttal, during which she described wearing bread bags on her feet while walking to school as a child:

    “You see, growing up, I had only one good pair of shoes. So on rainy school days, my mom would slip plastic bread bags over them to keep them dry. But I was never embarrassed. Because the school bus would be filled with rows and rows of young Iowans with bread bags slipped over their feet.”

    On Twitter, many users joked about the bizarre story (shown below).[5][6]

    ISIS Crappy Collage Grand Prix (Japanese: ISISクソコラグランプリ) refers to the hashtag for photoshopping craze on Twitter that mock at Islamic State (IS), better known as their previous name ISIS in Japan. On January 2015, some silly Japanese Twitter users joined onto this controversial fad with no firm beliefs or concerns about victims.

    Origin

    On January 20th, 2015, Islamic State released a new video on YouTube that a masked member says the two Japanese hostages, Kenji Goto Jogo and Haruna Yukawa, will be killed within 72 hours unless Japan pays $200 million in ransom.[1]



    In response to this video, Japanese Twitter users began posting parodying photoshopping images mocking at IS around that day’s evening. One of the earliest instances made by @AKID_0831 had retweeted 7,700 times and got over 5,000 favorites within first 7 hours.[2]



    Background: Japan’s “self-responsibility” thought

    Unlike Euro-American people, Japanese people tend to lack a sense of reality to Middle East issues since this non-christianity country doesn’t have considerable Muslim or Islamic immigrants issues and both Japan and Japan’s Self Defence Force in UN’s peacekeeping operations haven’t come under Islamic terrorism attack.

    Additinally, one of the several reasons why Japanese people gave a cold response to those hostages was their “self-responsibility” thought cultivated throughout 2000s by several hostage crisis happened in Iraq or Afghanistan. Some of these incidents victims were not journalists, but radical peace/political activists or young thoughtless travelers, and hence they had no supportable causes to go to Middle East with ignoring the government’s adjurations. On the web, heavy criticisms to blame them as irresponsible idiots under the slogan “self-responsibility”, and even dead victims had few sympathetic responses.

    Therefore, the sympathy toward to these two hostages which IS would expect didn’t grow among Japanese people, especially internet users keeping anonymity on the web, so much.

    Spread

    Just few hours after the photoshopping fad started, the hashtag “#ISISCrappyCollageGrandPrix” (#ISISクソコラグランプリ) was spontaneously born.[3] As well as previous Crappy Collage fads, many young thoughtless twitter users joined onto this bandwagon just for fun. Some of them provoked IS by sending those photos to Twitter accounts assumed to be IS members one, and drew these responses.



    This crazy online storm was quickly covered even in English news media[4][5] and English Al Jazeera[6] in the following day.

While most other superheroes are unable to process the dated pop culture reference, Captain America (portrayed by Chris Evans), whose canonical setting overlaps with the time period when the film was originally releases, smugly responds by saying that he “understood that reference”.

    About

    ISIS-chan (Japanese: ISISちゃん, Aishisu Chan) is a moeanthropomorphized character for the jihadist rebel group Islamic State (IS) created by users of the Japanese text board site 2channel. Similar to the story behind the birth of Hinomoto Oniko in 2010, ISIS-chan was conceived as part of an online effort to counter terrorist propaganda by disrupting the search-engine optimization (SEO) profile of relevant keywords with images of a moe character.

    Origin

    On January 24th, 2015, a user on 2channel’s /news4vip/ board[1] submitted a thread titled “Let’s make ISIS into a moe girl and send it to them!” with the intention of Google-bombing the search engine’s image search results for “ISIS” with anime character illustrations." Soon, the physical features and personality of the proposal character were determined through “anchor designation,” a popular forum game in which the specifications of a proposed idea are randomly selected through a lottery of specific post numbers as pre-designated by the original poster. Within first three hours, the post garnered 1,000 replies.

    Spread

    That same day, dozens of anonymous illustrators reacted to the thread and various ISIS-chan illustrations. Meanwhile, unlike the Crappy Collage Grand Prix on Twitter, 2channel users have also drafted some basic guidelines for ISIS-chan illustrators to follow in consideration of Islam and the Muslim community at large, as well as the hostages and their families.

    You make some agreements with ISIS-chan【Our rule】

    Our target is only ISIS, not Muslim or Islam.

    DO NOT insult Islam.
    DO NOT use Quran, Allah, Muhammad and other Islamic religious symbols in illustrations.
    DO give enough respect to Mr. Goto.

    Meanwhile, the hashtags #ISISイラスト化祭り (#ISIS Illustration Festival), #ISISちゃん and #ISIS_chan began circulating on Twitter,[6] with the last one racking up 9,000 mentions within the first 24 hours of the original post on 2channel. In addition, several social media accounts were created to diminish the SEO profile of ISIS-related keywords, including accounts on Twitter[2] and Tumblr[5], as well as a blog and a Wiki page[3][4]. By January 25th, the 2channel’s mission had reached 4chan’s /int/[7] and /pol/[8], reddit[9] and Krautchan.[10] As of 5 p.m. (EST), the Google search query for “ISIS_chan” yields about 18,200 results.
