The Brief: A simple but dark meme pairs the title of the Buggles song "Video Killed The Radio Star" with an image of a killer and their victim(s).
These image macros take the cheerful Buggles song and give it a disturbing twist by making parallels to how video “killed” the radio star with notorious murders, celebrity deaths, and more.

Of all the "video killed the radio star" memes I've seen in the last couple of days… This is the one that stings.
