The internet is a funny place, sort of like an echo spot. One person says something funny once and it instantly begins to echo from everywhere. The best example to explain what I’m trying to say is the short-lived trends of memes that go viral.
Remember the ‘distracted boyfriend’ meme?
Well, you get the point, right?
Now the netizens are losing their minds coming up with fun tips on how to kickstart 2018, as we inch closer to New Year’s Eve.
The moment the clock strikes 12 on 31st December is definitely a special moment (although slightly over-rated), but special nonetheless. It could be a New Year’s kiss or just an epiphany. Whatever makes you happy about starting a new year.
The now-viral trend started when someone tweeted this.
If you play “Feeling Myself” by Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé at exactly 11:58:50 pm on New Year’s Eve, Beyoncé will say “World Stop” in 2017 and “Carry On” in 2018! what a great way to start your year!!!!

4. DO NOT DO THIS, boys! Unless you’d rather spend the evening home fussing over which heels your girl must wear.
If you tell your girlfriend "I think the first heels looked better" at 9:56pm on New Year's Eve, you'll leave the house at exactly midnight.

5. That’s quite dark, like the NYE night will be.
If you play no music at 11:59:45 PM on New year's Eve the crushing realization that you're alone on New year's will set in at midnight

7. Not sure what to make of this invaluable piece of information…
If you turn on the car’s ignition at exactly 11:34 PM on New Year’s Eve the maximum capacity for carbon monoxide in the average garage will be reached at midnight. Start your new year right.

8. That’s great advising, Devin. (NOT)

9. You can still look Perfect though.
10. This sounds like something I would do.
If you play Baba Ji Ki Booty at 11.59.39pm on New year's Eve. You will hear the song still going at midnight. If you follow the instructions in the song though, you won't give a fuck what song is playing at midnight.

12. It will surely be your year, my friend.
If you start listening to "Dipset Anthem" by The Diplomats on December 31st at 11:58:09, you will hear Juelz Santana say "YEAH, YEAH, IT'S MY YEAR" when the clock strikes midnight and there's really no better way to start off the new year than that.
