The Alien You’ve Been Seeing In Your Social Feeds Is Lil Mayo and He’s Turnt

During the last week or so there's been a mysterious alien infesting your social feeds, smoking up a storm, and turning up to your favorite rap songs. His name is Lil Mayo and he's a meme from 2012 that has evolved into the coolest alien on the Internet.

According to Know Your Meme, the appropriately titled "Ayy Lmao" meme popped off around 2012 after someone posted a still shot of an alien from an episode of The X-Files. The meme then took on a life of its own after it was frequently used on gossip blog Oh No They Didn't in 2013. Facebook pages and Tumblrs started to spring up soon after and here we are in 2015 seeing it all over again. 

My guy Mayo can be seen on his Twitter, Instagram, and Vine pages turning up to the likes of Travi$ Scott, Drake, Future, Wu-Tang, Young Thug, and A$AP Rocky. He's jumping out of sunroofs, puffing hella weed, chilling with shorties, and drinking beer like a true savage.

We rounded up some of our favorites below and be sure to follow Lil Mayo's feeds for inspiration when you're feeling washed up. Our favorite might be the "Jumpman."
