December 5, 2012 by Guest Author 7 Comments Do you ever feel like your mind wanders off in different directions as you are praying? With these words, I am reminded to entreat the Lord for strength when I am facing temptation. Robin Martin and her husband Randy are members at the South Twin Cities Church of Christ in Rosemount, MN, where Randy ministers as an elder.

Actually, it vibrated, and because this is a story about the age of the Internet and the way technology can change our lives, it’s important to get the sound right.
It’s a blond kid wearing a light blue polo shirt under a hideous red sweater vest, giving off the goofiest, braces-laced smile.
Above and below his head are the large white block letters that turn the goofy photo into a meme — a sort of one-panel cartoon in which the caption is rewritten over and over. The first meme was posted to Reddit by Ian Davies, who has been Kyle’s friend since elementary school. We’re supposed to meet the day after Christmas, so I call him on the 24th to check in. From a bottom shelf, he pulls out a 2005-06 yearbook and flips to the pages with black-and-white photos of the junior class. They look at the photo, look at him and squeal as if they’ve just won a backstage pass to the Internet.
He has been asked to let people use his picture for advertisements in Germany, Chile, Poland and Puerto Rico.
Between licensing deals and T-shirts, he estimates he’s made between $15,000 and $20,000 off Bad Luck Brian in three years. There’s no set course of action for what to do when a years-old picture of you gets mocked by millions of strangers.
Bad Luck Brian’s course was inspired by the meme Overly Attached Girlfriend, which features a brunette named Laina Morris in a green shirt with her eyes bugging out. Morris, who has used her meme fame to try and launch herself to further Web stardom, has 1.2 million subscribers to her YouTube channel.


Morris paid Kyle to fly out to Los Angeles and star in a video where the two memes go on a date together. He saw YouTube as an opportunity to keep Bad Luck Brian going, a year and a half after the meme debuted.
But occasionally, he still gets emails or phone calls from people who want to use Bad Luck Brian in an ad campaign. As a Christian woman, I want my prayers to be focused and purposeful, yet still pour out my heart to God.
Are we humbling our hearts before God and letting Him know that we are “on board” with whatever He wills to be done? We will fall short (we’re human) but again, this is when I ask for forgiveness when I stumble, and for the strength to forgive others when they have hurt me. And if I’m not clear on a passage that I think answers the questions, God ALWAYS provides an elder, or much wiser individual to help me get some answers. In his bedroom in northeast Ohio, he was just a 22-year-old a few months away from college graduation, ready to take a job at his father’s construction company. The way the meme Grumpy Cat is a symbol for being out of sorts, Kyle-as-Brian became a symbol for a stroke of hilarious bad luck. Once he’s feeling a little better, we meet at his house, roughly 40 minutes outside of Cleveland, Ohio. According to Kyle, the day the photos came out, she came up to him and said, “Picture retake day is tomorrow. He appears at conferences such as VidCon and Indy Pop Con, where he sells T-shirts while wearing a different sweater vest.
After a day at a half-finished church, he goes home and writes things he needs to do on the dry-erase boards all around his office.
Attempts at lawsuits seem to succeed only when someone is using the meme for profit without permission, such as when Warner Bros.
The meme was born out of a Justin Bieber parody video, which has been viewed more than 17 million times. It could vibrate any time, alerting him to the next opportunity to keep him Internet-famous.


When we think of how the Lord has washed away our debt of sin, we, in turn, should not withhold our forgiveness from others. They have seven children together, four of whom have married Christian spouses, giving them eight grandchildren! It’s enough time to let something become part of your identity — even when the online fame begins to fade. In retaliation, he convinced someone on the yearbook staff to put his photo on the page twice.
Kyle’s a project manager, so he oversees the moving parts on building sites for churches of all kinds.
Sometimes I will even talk out loud so I can keep my train of thought, as if I were talking face-to-face with the Lord. I tell Him how I would like the prayer to be answered, but then that I understand that He knows what is best for me, and that I will accept whatever He wills be done. I need to tell Him that I know He is the “way out” of the trial I face-every time! Robin enjoys running her in-home licensed daycare, teaching the baby and toddler classes for the church, leading ladies’ devotionals, and has had the privilege of speaking at Ladies Days in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa. He rubbed his face to make it all red, squinted his eyes, puffed out his jaw and took what he thought was a pure genius photo. He unwrapped packets of butter and threw them on the ceiling tiles of the cafeteria, so they would stick for a little while and fall into the hair of unsuspecting freshmen in the next lunch period. This may sound silly, but I am less inclined to let my mind go to the next thought before I have finished one thought. If you have had opportunity to go on a mission trip and visit an underdeveloped country, you’ve likely seen people dig through garbage heaps for food, or the homeless eating scraps left behind by others. People like me, who barely knew him in high school, bragged about his photo’s popularity.
