Snapchat Transforms Popular SpongeBob SquarePants Memes Into Snapshot Filters

When it comes to memes and meme culture, there’s no-one more impressive than the one and only SpongeBob SquarePants. Everyone’s favourite sponge and his Bikini Bottom pals have been the focus of countless memes now, and you’ll soon be able to emulate them all yourself thanks to Snapchat!

Beginning this week, fans can meme themselves as SpongeBob SquarePants on Snapchat, thanks to a series of new filters that allow users to place themselves inside of some of the most famous internet memes based on the long-running animated series. The SpongeBob SquarePants memes (many of the same ones currently available as Masterpiece Memes toys at retailers around the world) are available to Snapchat users in the United States through December 22. Some Snapchat users will automatically see the SpongeBob SquarePants icon among the selection of lenses, while others can scan a special Snapcode to access the lenses. You can see the official description for the filters below.

For the first time ever, anyone can meme themselves on Snapchat as SpongeBob SquarePants and his Bikini Bottom friends. The exclusively designed lenses are available on Snapchat for a limited time only and feature the most popular characters and iconic meme moments from Nickelodeon’s hit animated series, including Imaginaaation SpongeBob, Surprised Patrick, Handsome Squidward and SpongeGar.

SpongeBob SquarePants’ memes are part of the Internet lexicon, and now fans can craft and share their own personalized versions of: being overly happy like Imaginaaation SpongeBob, being shocked like Surprised Patrick or showing both sides of themselves as Public Account vs. Private Account through Handsome Squidward and SpongeGar.

How to access lens via Snapcode:

Step 1: Simply open Snapchat and point the camera at the below Snapcode.

Step 2: Press and hold on the Snapcode on your screen to scan it.

Step 3: Once you see the below message, click “Unlock for 1 hour”

Step 4: Have fun! Share with friends, save in your camera roll & post yourself using the lens to your story!

The SpongeBob SquarePants lenses mimic Alpha Group’s 8-inch collectible Masterpiece Memes vinyl figures series. The collectible toys from Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants global master toy partner, bring to life the fan-favorite show and movie moments that have now become some of the most popular viral memes. Featuring exceptional details and window packaging for collector displays, the Masterpiece Memes figures include Mocking SpongeBob, Imaaagination SpongeBob, Surprised Patrick, SpongeGar and Handsome Squidward, are now available at Amazon, for SRP: $19.99.

SpongeBob SquarePants, which was recently greenlit for a 13th season, has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical which is now touring North America and a global fan base. SpongeBob SquarePants is seen in more than 208 countries and territories, translated in 55+ languages, and averages more than 100 million total viewers every quarter.
