It’s that meme – the one we all know and we’ve all seen. Yup, ‘1 Girl Surrounded’ or the Piper Perri meme is resurfacing on the internet again and it’s still just as hilarious.

Here’s an explanation of where it came from and everything else you didn’t need to know.

Where did the 1 Girl Surrounded Meme come from?

Back in 2016, an anonymous 9GAG user took a still shot from an adult film, Orgy is the New Black, and labelled each actor as a different life issue, such as ‘bills’.

The post ended up blowing up and going viral, which is why we’re still seeing the meme floating around the internet in 2021.

Why is it still relevant in 2021?

We all know that memes keep up with trends and, what we may have found funny four years ago might not necessarily live up to our current humour. Yet, the Piper Perri (AKA 1 girl surrounded meme) is unique in the way that it can be applied to almost anything and still remain pretty relevant.

The meme is so well-known across the internet, users have even uploaded images of inanimate objects set up to resemble the original meme.

People have also been known to photoshop different faces of notable figures, such as politicians, or celebrities onto Piper Perri’s head.
