      This is one of my constant frustrations on Lemmy too. People constantly dropping abbreviations with no explanation, assuming their cultural background is universal.

        AMV has been around for years now. Plus, this was likely posted to a community that knows what an amv is and never intended for here

            I don’t know if I’ve ever heard the initialism AMV or not (though I’ve watched plenty of them), but even not knowing what it was it was pretty easy to figure out from context (though i thought “animated” instead of “anime”, but close enough anyway)

            Some acronyms and initialisms, I don’t really get why they’re so hard for people, especially in context

              They’re not, people just like to complain and have things handed to them. In that order.

            Yeah, I can remember them from the early YouTube days, but I wasn’t 100% certain if it had been decades yet >!and I didn’t want to think about how old I’m getting!<

            The original post, not this post, wasn’t meant for here. It was meant for it’s own community

        It is wild that this post about a harmless abbreviation that refers to cringey (but endearing to me) narrow slice of early-mid 2000s internet culture got this reaction out of you. Something that could be ignored or looked up.

        Be it Lemmy or the communities you stumble upon, but perhaps some introspection about how you respond and interact with the internet could use a revisit.

        plugs “what is AMV” into DDG

          Now I’m embarrassed. Did you plug “what is AMV” into a rapper from Michigan, or a guided missile?

            If this isn’t a lesson in situational irony, I don’t know what is!

            I’m using DDG to mean duckduckgo. Google would’ve made more sense, but I do not like google. Sorry for the confusion!

          Yeah who doesn’t know about the Patria AMV armoured personnel carrier?

          Doing this occasionally isn’t so bad but I’ve noticed it happening much more frequently on Lemmy lately

        Sometimes this is totally fair, but I think any abbreviation that instantly comes up on google is fair game. IIRC, TIL, AMV, BRB, IRL, IKR, etc.

    I mean, my initial introduction to Nightwish was the Wishmaster Misheard Lyrics video. And for a while I always looked for that video to hear that song. Not too weird to do it like that.

      Same scenario for me, but for Six by All That Remains. The misheard lyrics were better than the real lyrics.

    And then there’s me who still wonders why nobody ever did a Dragonball AMV for Rainbow’s Power or The Kinks’ Powerman.

    Wanted to make some myself but I could never find the time or the energy power.
