Individual work approach to collective cultural memory is marked by unprecedented digital tool – Internet.

YouTube counter is undoubtedly the best indicator for the presence of these artifacts in virtual reality. The records of the downloads of the “Gangnam Style” song in billion, support the argument for the influence of the new technological means on collective memory.
