Andy Warhol coined the phrase “15 minutes of fame,” and in today’s society, it’s more prevalent than ever. It seems nowadays celebrities rise and fall like herpes, only lasting a short while until the public douses them with Valtrex, killing them for good. Here are a few examples of that.

Which one was the most forgettable for you?

Rebecca Black
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “Friday”
Why people cared: In 2011 a YouTube video titled “Friday” broke the Internet. It was quickly dubbed the “worst song ever” and soon everyone in the world knew about it. People sang it at work, in bars, and possibly on Vietnamese rice paddies to pass the time.

Spencer Pratt
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “The Hills”
Why people cared: The immensely hatable, flesh-colored-beard-havin’ douchebag of the century Spencer Pratt became famous after “The Hills.” Today, no one knows whether he is alive or dead or really who cares for that matter. In 2010, he appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman” and claimed nightclubs paid him $100,000 for merely stepping into them, which brought his loathsomeness to a new high and eventually a breaking point. He has since drifted back into obscurity where he belongs.

Tiffany “New York” Pollard
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “Flavor of Love”
Why people cared: Like Pratt, Tiffany Pollard – known as “New York” – flew into the public eye due to America’s fascination with sheer repugnance. She first appeared on Flavor Flav’s dating show “Flavor of Love” in 2006. In one instance, Pollard got ghetto, someone spit into her mouth, and later got her own reality series called “I Love New York.” It brought American culture to a new low and has since been seared into everyone’s memory like a genital wart that won’t go away.

Mystery (The Pickup Artist)
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “The Pickup Artist”
Why people cared: Remember this titanic helping of a douche? Somewhere around 2007 magician Erik von Markovik gave himself the nickname “Mystery” and began teaching hopeless goobers how to get chicks. “The Pickup Artist” lasted two seasons (thank Jesus) and “Mystery” is no more.

Antoine Dodson
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, cause they rapin’ errybody out here.”
Why people cared: In 2010, a rapist terrorized the Lincoln Park housing project in Alabama. One particular victim, Kelly Dodson, was being interviewed by the media when her brother, Antoine, stole the stage. He taunted the rapist with such words as, “We got your T-shirt and you left finger prints. You are so dumb, you are really dumb. For real.” Sixty million views later, Antoine was a bonafide celebrity. “And you can run and tell dat, homeboy.”

Octomom
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: Having eight children in her womb.
Why people cared: Nadya Soleman, known as Octomom, was an inspiration to all. She gave birth to octuplets in January of 2009. But her endearing status would fade, as a short time later it would be revealed that she had six other children and was unemployed and on welfare. Fast forward three years, and she’s making a porno called “Octomom Home Alone” and stripping. Her 14 children were unavailable for comment about how they feel about that.

Ylvis
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “What Does the Fox Say?”
Why people cared: Two Norwegian weirdos released a music video in 2013 and dressed up as animals and made animal noises and soon had 500 million views on their hands. Everyone loved it. However, the comedy duo seems to have reached their peak with “What Does the Fox Say?” and will probably never achieve such acclaim again. But I’m hoping they do.

Gotye
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “Somebody I Used to Know”
Why people cared: Is it just me, or did Gotye become somebody we used to know? Punned. Gotye, an Aussie, broke into international stardom in 2011 but appears to have disappeared. Was it a one-hit wonder? We shall see.

William “Shebang” Hung
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: Auditioning for American Idol.
Why people cared: It was off-key and embarrassing, but everyone loved him for it. Or loved the laughter it afforded them. Hung has since lapsed into a quiet life. Reports say he is now working as a technical crime analyst for the LA Sheriff’s Department.

Snooki
Entertainment, Celebrities We've Forgotten, Celebrity Has Beens
Claim to fame: “Jersey Shore”
Why people cared: Like almost everyone on this list, Snooki captured the imagination of audiences everywhere by being a complete and utter boob. With the skin and the stature of an Oompa Loompa, it was so easy to hate Snooki it was almost unfair. She has recently started a family, so let’s see how that goes.
