“I Need More Bullets,” also known as “I Need More Boolets” or “I Need More Boullets,” is a popular series of TikTok videos featuring a character played by an NPC Streamer known as R.octavoc.r (@isrhaul).
In these videos, he portrays a French soldier on TikTok LIVE who comically asks for more bullets while also dancing provocatively, akin to twerking.
Alongside this, he uses famous catchphrases such as “Hasta la vista baby!” His content primarily targets a g*y audience.
These videos gained widespread attention on TikTok around mid-2023, and screen-recordings of his live streams started circulating, contributing to the creation of memes.
These memes, predominantly emerging in August 2023, used his videos as humorous and entertaining content on social media platforms.
It’s interesting to note how AI NPC (Non-Player Character) streamers are now being integrated into the landscape of entertainment, blurring the lines between reality and the virtual. R.octavoc.r’s playful and humorous approach, coupled with a mix of cultural references and a clear nod to a specific audience, makes for an engaging and shareable content formula.
It is also worth noting that while many viewers might be drawn to the content for its comedic value, others might be engaged for more aesthetic or even sensual reasons. The duality in audience reception highlights the broad appeal of such content.
As with many internet phenomena, the origins of these memes often start as simple, innocuous content that resonates with a certain group, which then gets amplified by sharing, remixing, and recontextualizing, turning it into a widespread trend.
