Top 10 Best Sites
Looking for a dating site you can trust? Search no more.
The Short Version: Most singles and couples are familiar with receiving video messages from friends and family on special occasions, but not many get one from a celebrity. memmo.me users can request messages from famous actors, athletes, and many others be sent to their friends, family, or significant other. They can choose from a roster of celebrities to create personalized messages, often with unique spins, for everyday folks. Those looking for a gift for a loved one’s birthday or other special occasion can ask celebrities from “The Office” or “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” to record a message that will sweep the recipient off their feet.
It can be challenging to find a unique gift for a spouse or partner on a special occasion. But a personal message from a celebrity certainly fits the bill.
Kate Flannery, an actress best known for her role as Meredith on “The Office,” recently recorded a 14th-anniversary video to Kirsten from her husband through the popular memmo.me platform.
“Just remember the first season of ‘The Office’ got you through your first delivery at the hospital, huh? Interesting that Mason and I have the same hair color. Gingers rule!” she joked about Kristen and the couple’s child.
Improvisational star Colin Mochrie from “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” recorded a video from a wife to her husband who had been away.
“Your wife asked me to give you this message: ‘Can’t wait to have you home’ — and I believe she means this, there’s a big exclamation point right afterwards, so far, so good — ‘miss you terribly.’ Again, big exclamation point. This woman loves and misses you. She must think of you as the love of her life.”
Then the message takes a turn:
“‘I’m running out of towels and clean underwear. No one will run out of the house at midnight to get me a Kit-Kat and a Coke,’” Colin said — a joke that perhaps wasn’t in the original message between spouses.
A fan writes of another of Colin’s memmos, “Colin, thank you very much for using your iconic, comedic superpowers to break the news at the gender reveal. You brought my daughter to tears of joy with your genuine parental advice. Your song stylings brought the house down.”
Flannery and Mochrie are popular celebrities on memmo.me, a platform that allows users to schedule messages from their favorite stars to send to family and friends.
And many singles who want to woo a potential partner after a first or second date may find that a pep talk from a famous person can solidify their connection.
“Ronnie Coleman, Bruce Buffer, and Ray Borque are popular among sports fans and great at pep talks!” said Sandra Claire Palmgren, memmo.me Head of Content and Marketing.
Each week, memmo.me offers a different list of trending celebrities. Often, the trending section of the platform varies based on upcoming occasions. For example, a Jesus impersonator was trending during the week of Easter.
Some celebrities also specialize in occasions. Mochrie, for instance, is a popular choice for birthday wishes because of his fondness for unique twists.
Other customers enjoy teasing their recipients, good-naturedly, of course.
“For those who wish to roast their friends, Michael Rapaport is a frequent choice, as is Kate Flannery, who’s always going that extra mile,” said Sandra.
Many customers use memmo.me to make a birthday special for a partner or friend. Some use memmos to reveal gifts, send birthday party invites, or even sing songs.
For example, Tayla’s partner Dave asked American singer-songwriter Gary Levox to sing her happy birthday — and add a special message.
“I just want to reach out and wish you a happy birthday! I can’t believe you guys were at the Foxwood show in 2020. That’s just crazy how time flies. Thank you for never missing a tour. My solo tour starts in April this year, so you’ll have to check it out!” he said in his memmo.
A section on the site called Ask Your Crush Out gives singles an assist from a celebrity. Some of the stars who help foster first dates include William Hung, an “American Idol” contestant and motivational speaker, Boston Rob Mariano from “Survivor,” and Robert Picardo from “Star Trek.”
Many of those famous people are also available to record Valentine’s Day wishes.
“A personalized video greeting from their favorite celebrity is truly a one-of-a-kind gift they’ll never forget,” Sandra told us.
memmo.me is easy to navigate, and if someone’s partner has a favorite celebrity, users can search for them on the platform.
For instance, a woman may decide she wants to send her partner a video from his favorite football player. If the athlete is on the site, she can quickly book a video message and provide the athlete with a message to relay in the video.
Then, the athlete records the video and sends it back for her to share with her partner.
Customers who know they want to send their partner a celebrity video but don’t have anyone in mind can scroll through the platform’s many categories, including Nostalgia and Reality (TV, that is). Or they can navigate based on upcoming national holidays or by birthday or anniversary.
Many users have been thrilled by memmos from their favorite celebrities.
“We are spoiled with 5-star reviews, which brings us so much joy! ‘Surreal experience,’ ‘exceeded all expectations,’ and ‘absolutely amazing’ are just some of the expressions you get when browsing through our reviews,” Sandra told us.
One user gushed about the memmo he received from Big Ed, a TV personality from “90-Day Fiance.”
“Thank you so much dude! We couldn’t stop laughing — it was hilarious. Thanks for being yourself to the ultimate degree and bringing people light in this world! Appreciate you!” read the online testimonial.
Another user asked his friend to be the best man at his wedding — with some help from broadcaster Bob McKenzie.
“It was great to see Bob talking to you personally, calling us both by our nicknames, tricking me into an insider job because he was retiring and eventually asking me to be John’s best man. A moment and feeling I will never forget,” read the user’s review.
The idea for memmo.me was sparked by a video played at a wedding. After many reception speeches, a dedicated friend played a video clip featuring the bride’s celebrity crush. He made the crowd laugh by suggesting he could have been the groom — if circumstances had been different.
“The question arose — how had the gifter managed to get hold of such a video, and could there be a way to share these experiences of fans to talent connection more often?” memmo.me asks on its website.
The team knew that celebrities weren’t unreachable. In fact, many were looking for more meaningful ways to connect with their fans. Those fans were also hungry to meet with their favorite stars.
The combination worked. Since memmo.me launched, it has grown significantly in popularity. The platform has celebrities from many realms, including classic sitcoms, reality TV shows, and the world of sports.
Sandra recommends searching for the ideal celebrity for the occasion. For instance, if someone wants to ask their partner to marry them, they could choose a star they both love. Users can find the right celebrity for every special occasion, whether it’s someone’s birthday, Christmas, or Mother’s Day.
As the platform becomes more well-known, the memmo.me team plans to continue building connections between celebrities and fans.
“Creating lifetime memories is at the heart of our brand and is what drives everything that we do. Our goal is simply to help create more of these special moments for people around the world, one memmo at a time,” Sandra told us.
