In 2010 actress Betty White went from Golden Girl to Golden Meme, thanks to her role in a popular Snickers Super Bowl commercial. The commercial inspired Facebookers create a page pressuring SNL to invite Betty White to host. Within a matter of days the group had 500,000 likes, Betty was invited to hose SNL and it’s been all uphill from there (not that she wasn’t already doing great)! Today she’s responsible for millions of YouTube views, hundreds of thousands of Facebook likes and now she’s even got her own infographic!
