Know your meme: “i tried”
The “you tried” or “i tried” gold star meme is a reaction image often used to pity or encourage. Usually at someone’s failed attempt at humour, or work. It’s sometimes used sarcastically as well, especially when someone might have just used minimal effort.
Origin of the meme: back in elementary school, do you remember receiving motivational stickers or stamps from your teachers? This practice has been going on for sooo long to reward students with a job well done, completing an assignment, or good behaviour.
Gold star clip art images were used as legit compliments about 10 years ago! It started getting popular as a sarcastic-use on the blogging site, Tumblr, sometime in May 2012.
While it is rather difficult to find the exact origin of this meme, the phrase “at least you tried” has been captioned under fail images and videos online.
Since becoming really popular on Tumblr, the gold star image has had several variations of the phrase “you tried” come out, such as “i tried” and “i don’t even think you tried at all”.
