Interesting loop you guys have worked around here, where the first and last images contain the same direct joke from the "y tho" meme but on slightly different subjects: the main distinction between the two is that the last volley use4s the meme to refer to itself, which points out that "y tho" can be used as a punch line to itself, implying this regression and volley could be infinite without technically reducing to absurdist humor.

I love me some trolley problems. Few current memes offer as much expressive creativity in use as the classic "do you pull the lever?" prompt since it has so many slightly tweakable elements. As such, you can see we ended up with a bunch of completely different yet mechanically similar volleys. In addition to that, you can see clearly how each person involved tackled a different angle. Dope execution.

I love this! It's very creative and the entire team took some really bold steps in their work, which comes together in a great way. I love the use of pop culture and how you re-contextualize the image. I also like that the final product is so far removed from the original- it goes to show the amount of work that went into changing the image.
I do wish that there were some subtler work or message in a layer, but the very obvious message in every layer does accentuate your bold visual choices.

It's very cute! I like that the image has some sort of cohesion in its composition- muted tones and cute things go together well.
I do wish there were more experimentation in your edits: the vast majority of the layers simply do that: add a layer to the composition. I'd like to see things that completely repurpose the previous image.

I really like your creativity! The third layer made me laugh so hard. It is interesting to turn some philosophical problem into a funny, spreadable meme. Good work!

I wasn't previously familiar with this meme, which makes me think it's very new, very obscure, very dank, or some mix of the three. Though you really built off of the memes well to make a thematic progression! It evolved very naturally and smoothly. Very effective.
