A meme is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person with culture," according to Merriam-Webster dictionary. Memes, which are already an imitation of culture or behavior, have been made more popular through online GIFs, or graphics interchange format.
Brie paired up with comedian Paul F. Tompkin on his web series "Speakeasy" Monday to cover popular memes such as Grumpy Cat, Overly Attached Girlfriend, and Unflattering Beyonce.
Moreover, Brie performs scenes such as "try on a tiny sombrero" and "asking advice of a shrunken witch head."
The video, which was posted to YouTube just two days ago, has already attracted 400 thousand views.
In addition to drawing laughs with her covers of popular memes, Brie is well known for her role as Judy Campbell on "Mad Men" and for her role on NBC's "Community."
The 30-year-old has also appeared in films such as "Scream 4" and "The Five-Year Engagement."
Furthermore, the Hollywood native has recently appeared in this month's edition of Esquire magazine and revealed her ideas about romance.
"If you're a guy, you should get girls flowers all the time," Brie said. "They never get old and you can never get them enough. I'm never disappointed when I get flowers. I always thought guys who don't buy women flowers are such fools."
"All it takes is one," added the actress. "A little goes a long way with flowers."
As for her fit figure, Brie joked that yoga was "my church" and that running "never seems like a strenuous exercise and always clears my head."
