About

Invest In Rare Fish or Rare Fish Investments refers to a series of parody hustle culture memes that suggest people invest in rare fish and the "rare fish market." Additionally, the need for Multiple Uncles became its own subset of the trend. The memes began on Instagram in March 2021 and spread to TikTok in early 2022.

Origin

The idea of a "rare fish market" is possibly inspired by the video game Cruelty Squad, released in January 2021, which features a version of the stock market where players can trade fish and human organs on a market for profit (shown below).



On April 27th, 2021, Instagram[1] page @entrapranure, a parody hustle culture page, posted an image macro showing images of Tom Brady and Michael Cera under the caption, "If your friend group isn't talking about these things… find a new friend group," followed by several purposely ridiculous things to talk about, including "piles of sand," "Tom Brandy touchdown," and "rare fish investments" (shown below). The post gained over 1,300 likes in a year.


IF YOUR FRIEND GROUP ISN'T TALKING ABOUT THESE THINGS... FIND A NEW FRIEND GROUP Side hustle ideas Tap water consumption Growth sectors Daily olive consumption Fine leather suits Piles of sand Figure skating scores Tom Brandy Touchdown Rare fish investments Accidental sand consumption @entrapranure

Spread

The original meme was shared by Instagram[2] page yourlordandsaviormonke the next day, gaining over 3,000 likes in a year. On May 2nd, 2021, @entrapranure posted another meme about investing in rare fish to Instagram,[3] gaining over 1,100 likes in 11 months (shown below, left).

SUIT UP, SHUT UP, AND WAKE UP We wear suits so others don't have to. We stay up and grind so others can sleep in. The difference between us and "The 0thers" is several commas in our bank account, a healthy consumption of tap water and homemade coffee, and a balanced portfolio of stocks, cryptocurrency, and rare fish. @entrapranure Σ S SIGMA STUDIES Wehailiato utsig GUTS - BERSERK (1989) RESISTANT TO FIRE (FIRE CAN'T KILL SIGMAS) "I NEVER ASKED FOR A MIRACLE; I'LL GET THINGS DONE MYSELF!" - SIGMA GUTS - PREFERS TO WIELD A MASSIVE SWORD OVER SOMETHING PRACTICAL - KILLED 100 SOLDIERS IN A SINGLE NIGHT TO ESTABLISH HIERARCHY - KILLED AN ANCIENT SEA GOD, TO CAPITALIZE ON THE RARE FISH MARKET - BLINDING RAGE Iglethe.brilliant.ceo.quotes.ig

Mongolian Fishing Boots, Tech Extremists & Zara Employees

Mongolian Fishing Boots, Tech Extremists & Zara Employees refers to a series of parody hustle culture, sigma grindset and ironic business TikTok videos that emphasized the three aforementioned signifiers as vital components to a successful future. The trend started on TikTok in late 2022, related to the precursor rare fish and multiple uncles trend.

Various Examples


WHY I SACRIFICED IT ALL I abandoned my family. I sold out my friends. I put my kids up for adoption. I donated most of my organs to science. I knew that none of the above would aide me in my journey to residual income. Once I shed the unnecessary, I started to see gains beyond belief. My net worth quadrupled, my duplexes grew into triplexes, my common fish evolved into rare fish. Sacrifice everything. DO THESE 6 THINGS RIGHT NOW 1. Whatever you're doing, quit. School, job, girl - walk out 2. Go home and board up your front door 3. Learn high demand profitable skills like copyrighting, voice acting, rare fish trend analysis 4. Call your family and tell them you will see them in 10 years 5. Grind for a decade. Take down the boards, emerge from home as a new man. A richer, stronger, less completely pathetic man 6.
