Gallery: Xbox's Major Nelson is the king of memes

The new Reddit app on Xbox one has some odd achievement images

Remember when we told you a Reddit app called ReddX was coming to Xbox One? What do you mean no? It was only this morning.

Regardless, when it was first revealed by Xbox's Larry 'Major Nelson' Hryb, he also said the app would come with achievements "named after some of the internet's favourite memes".

Right, I thought. We've seen this sort of thing before. Games often refer to memes when naming their achievements, purely for the lols. For example, make a cake in Minecraft on Xbox 360 and you'll get an achievement called "The Lie", as in "The Cake Is A Lie".

What I didn't expect, though, was for every single achievement in the ReddX app to be named after a meme. Or, even better, that the images for each achievement would feature Major Nelson recreating those memes.

Here's a look at every meme spoofed, followed by Major Nelson's take on it and the achievement it unlocks.
