Zendaya is Loving the 'Zendaya is Meechee' Meme: Watch
The video was posted by YouTuber Gabriel Gundacker on Sept. 22 and had three million views in 24 hours.
Another day, another meme. The catchy tune this time is “Zendaya Is Meechee” -- essentially a promotional poster for the animated film Smallfoot starring Zendaya, LeBron James and more -- that has been turned into a 52-second song that caught Twitter by storm on Saturday (Sept. 22). Most importantly, the actress/singer seems to be a fan.
In the upcoming animated movie Zendaya plays Meechee, basketball superstar James is Gwangi, Danny DeVito is Dorgle, Common is Stonekeeper and Gina Rodriguez is Kolka in a comedy that follows a group of Yeti who discover that the mythical human creature Smallfoot (James Corden) is a real thing .
Despite the simple movie poster, it didn't take long for YouTube sensation Gabriel Gundacker to make an inspiring anthem about, well, Zendaya being Meechee. The video shows Gundacker walking by a wall with all the Smallfoot posters, as he soulfully sings about the characters. Of course, one thing is highlighted: Zendaya Is Meechee.
Racking up more than three million views in 24 hours, "Zendaya Is Meechee" became the newest Twitter fever by Sunday (Sept. 23) and took off when Zendaya herself acknowledged the video and retweeted it on her personal account with the caption "Sang my name right and everything" followed by a series of laughing emojis.
