Internet meme[edit]

"All This Love" is the base of an internet meme, particularly on the website YTMND. On July 16, 2006, YTMND user Salta created a site called "Rainbow Stalin;" which comes from a misinterpretation of the words "rainbow stylin'" in The Similou's song to be about Joseph Stalin. This site featured an edited Soviet propaganda picture to which Salta added a rainbow and gave Stalin cartoon-like eyes. Many of the sites have Soviet propaganda art edited with flashing colors and accessories such as sunglasses, headphones, and turntables to portray Stalin as a jubilant DJ. While the meme comes from YTMND, references can be found on other websites such as YouTube.
