    Snakes on a Plane was a terrible turd of a movie. The way that Jackson talks about the movie makes it sound like it was supposed to be campy and funny, but it plays like a serious movie that was so bad they decided to try to turn it into comedy. I feel sorry for anyone that got duped into paying money to watch it just because of the re-shoot stunt.

      Fun fact: Jhon Wick was directed by Keanu Reeve's stunt action for the matrix movies. The movie was literally tailor made for him

          I saw this talk at GDC, where the lead developer of the game Dream Daddy explains a similar effect in videogames... and a sneaky way to manipulate the type of memes people do about your product.
          By this two talks i've come to a conclusion about being a public figure in the modern age: "Don't try to make yourself something desirable on your terms because you'll end up as cringey at best and hated at worst... rather, you should own the joke, make something positive (and profitable) about what people think about you, because there's already a popular opinion that you just can't change by complaining".

                              i highly doubt that it was the first time a meme was in a film considering memes existed before someone blurted out carpe diem et memento mori.

                                This has some resemblance to the way "service dominant logic" is describing value as always being co-created between a company and a customer (producer and consumer). It's very interesting to see this taking place in media such as films where the one watching the movie is traditionally just thought of as a pure consumer. I wonder if filmmakers think about this these days and aim to deliberately build systems or things into the things they produce to make it easier for the audience to become a co-creator.

                                              Interesting about John Wick. I’ve always wondered what was different about that movie, but I never thought it was my preconceived identity of Keanu that made me emphasize with a character who speaks so little.

                                                                Similar to this topic, I'd like to see a video about how fan theories are affecting creators. Star Wars, Marvel, Game of Thrones, Rick and Morty, and pretty much every ongoing series these days has to contend with them. I know some creators go out of their way to avoid them, but they've gotta be one of the hardest parts of being a writer in the internet age
