Overly Attached Girlfriend


Overly Attached Girlfriend is an image macro advice animal featuring a webcam picture of a girl and various captions portraying her as the stereotype for a clingy overly attached girlfriend.


It began with a youtube video. On June 6, 2012, YouTuber wzro713, uploaded a webcam video titled “JB Fanvideo”. The video featured a girl singing a parody rendition of Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend. The video was submitted in response to Bieber’s announcement of an online sing-off contest promoting his celebrity perfume, “Girlfriend”, according to a Gawker article.


In less than 48 hours of the upload, the video received more than 1.35 million views.


Redditor, yeahtoast, submitted a link to the YouTube video in a thread titled “Overly Attached Girlfriend”, which gathered more than 800 comments in span of 7 hours, on June 7, 2012. It also started a Quickmeme page for an advice animal character called Overly Attached Girlfriend.

Who's Mom

Many Redditor and YouTubers commented that the advice animal character “Overly Attached Girlfriend” is identical to the older advice animal, Crazy Girlfriend Praying Mantis.
