The Brief: "Emergency meeting" image macro memes come from the mobile game Among Us.

“Emergency Meeting” memes use an image from the free mobile game Among Us. In the game, when a user presses the “Emergency Button,” all players are transported to the Cafeteria where they communicate via chat to vote for an “impostor.”

This format was posted to the subreddit r/MemeEconomy by user FinnishScrub in late August. From there, iterations of these memes spread to the Dank Memes and the Among Us subreddits, where they rose to popularity in early September.

These memes typically illustrate situations in which people suddenly encounter a big problem, and are compelled to convene for an emergency meeting.

Some popular memes with this format touch on sensitive subjects such as suicide.

These memes have become so popular that they’ve inspired a number of meta-memes about Reddit being oversaturated with the format.
