* Jay Wright: "Bang." [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the 2016 NCAA National Championship Game, Villanova won their second-ever National Championship thanks to a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7FFJUz0tdo buzzer-beating three-point shot]] by forward Kris Jenkins. After the pandemonium died down, it was noticed that Villanova head coach Jay Wright's reaction was unusually composed, [[https://vine.co/v/iI7EFe3KKBT saying "Bang" as Jenkins got the shot off, then nonchalantly walking away as people celebrated.]] Coach Wright later explained that his cool reaction was because he wasn't sure the shot counted. Since then, the two moments have been the biggest visual moment of Villanova's championship win.

** The 2016 Usefulnotes/OlympicGames in Rio de Janeiro had Brazilians bring back the 7-1 memories (specially when medals were lost to Germany - or in the football tournament's case, [[HeroicRematch when Brazil beat Germany in the final to get the gold]]) and see many athletes suffer drawbacks. Given the press usually started social media reports of defeats with "Não deu pro Brasil" ("It wasn't it for Brazil"), the phrase memed, either as a BerserkButton asking to use another phrase, or a sarcastic embrace, usually by the cynical.

* '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOpGCGtCVsE WILL GRIGG'S ON FIRE!!!]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUlSmCGj1r8 YOUR DEFENSE IS TERRIFIED!!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Northern Irish footballer Will Grigg had a break-through season with Wigan Athletic during their 2015-16 season, scoring 28 goals in 43 games in all competitions. In recognition of that, one Wigan fan, Sean Kennedy, uploaded a video of him singing Italian singer Gala's song "Freed from Desire", which he titled "Will griggs on fire". Kennedy replaced the words "Freed from desire/Mind and senses purified" from the actual song into "Will Grigg's on fire/Your defense is terrified". Needless to say, the song quickly went viral, becoming a popular chant worldwide (especially in Grigg's home country, Northern Ireland), and saw extended use by Northern Irish fans during the Euro 2016 even though Grigg didn't play a single game during the Euros. Kennedy would later receive a free Wigan 2016-17 season ticket from Wigan's chairman David Sharpe as a reward for the massive success of the chant.[[/labelnote]]
