The year was 2000. Justin Timberlake was the most famous band member of *NSYNC, along with Joey Fatone, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Lance Bass. Timberlake was famously dating pop princess Britney Spears while becoming internationally known for the steaming hot pack of Ramen noodles styled as his curly hair.

If you don't remember NSYNC's hit song "It's Gonna Be Me" on their "No Strings Attached Album," here's the music video to jog your memory. As you listen, see if you notice anything a bit ... odd ... about Timberlake's pronunciation of the word "me" at the end of each chorus.

In an interview, Timberlake revealed that the song's co-writer Max Martin instructed him to sing the line that way. "In my defense, Max Martin made me sing 'me' that way. I think he just wanted me to sound like I was from Tennessee," Timberlake explained.

It, without a doubt, 100% sounds like Justin Timberlake is actually singing the word "May." And just like that, the pop-culture phenomenon known as "It's Gonna Be May" memes was born.

Origin of the It's Gonna Be May Meme

In 2012, a now-defunct Tumblr account known as amyricha created the first known "It's Gonna Be May" meme, and since then, it's become one of the most popular shares on social media channels from Twitter to Facebook to Instagram and so on.
