This parody of LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It” will make anyone feel like boogieing-down for being partial to dressing up in pastel-colored costumes, exploring the galaxy on wobbly plywood spaceship bridges, and getting killed in unique, exotic, albeit cheesy ways for being foolish enough to wear a red shirt while accompanying an A-lister to a dangerous planet.

Today at Rocketboom we announce the sale of Know Your Meme to The Cheezburger Network. Cheezburger recently raised $30M and offered a super seven figure deal (I’d like to tell you how much exactly but they wanted to keep that confidential.) Before diving into the sale, I entertained another serious buy-out offer, entertained an offer for investment from a premier investor, and even considered turning it into a “double bottom line” company, but all in all, everyone advised and I agreed that this was by far the best deal to be done (esp. because I was 100% owner of the company with no other investors or partners involved.) When I took the idea to the Know Your Meme staff and got everyone’s complete conviction, I decided to hand it off.
