- 3 Who Is Nick Crompton?
- 4 Jake Paul Downfall
The England Is My City meme originated from a Nick Crompton lyric in the music video “It’s Everyday Bro” by Jake Paul. The lyric was widely derided on social, primarily because England is a country, not a city.
The video was uploaded on May 30th, 2017 by Jake Paul’s YouTube account. In the clip, he gloats about his followers and predicted that he would soon surpass Pewdiepie’s subscriber count.
He also infamously referenced his ex-girlfriend, YouTuber Alissa Violet. They had, at that point, only recently undergone a public split after rumors of mutual cheating. It was also rumored that Violet had started dating Jake’s brother, Logan.
During this dramatic music video, Nick Crompton shows up sings a lyric that includes the line “England is my city.”
The MemeCompiler YouTube channel produced a hilarious mashup of the best clips:
23Roses are Red and Nick Crompton failed geography class
One popular meme about “England is my city” with the classic poem of “Roses are red” but with a rhythm at the end that suggests how Nick Crompton failed geography class and ended up showing to the World the famous “England is my city” phrase. This post was published on KnowYourMeme as soon as the song got famous.
Who would win?
There are popular pictures altering the face of celebrities to create new memes every time, and Nick Crompton was an obvious victim. The creator decided to use two characters based on the rapper. One of them has the name of “Nick Nickton” with a slimmer face and the other one is “Cromp Crompton” with a chubby face.
22Gideon and Nick Crompton comparison
Nick Crompton is often compared to many fictional characters on the Internet. In this case, he was related to Gideon, a popular villain in the TV animated show “Gravity Falls”. He’s compared to this character due to his similarities, especially his big blonde hair and his round face. This meme was shared multiple times on social media networks.
21Gibby Gibson and Nick Crompton comparison
Have you seen the “Upgrade” meme? An internet user via KnowYourMeme created one funny alteration of “Upgrade” with Nick Crompton being compared to Orenthal Cornelius Gibson, better known as Gibby Gibson in ICarly. This time instead of a typical upgrade, the meme shows that you’d probably want to go back if Nick Crompton appeared.
20England is a city in Arkansas
It turns out that England is also, in fact, a city for the US. There’s a city called exactly like the European country, and it’s located in Arkansas. That’s why an Internet user created this meme with the desperate office guy exclaiming “I Guess”, and using a picture of Nick Crompton with the viral phrase accompanied by the England city map.
19Expanding brain and England is my city
The meme of “Expanding Brain” has been used many times in different situations, and one anonymous user used this meme with Nick Crompton to create this piece of art for some. Based on the phrase “England is my city”, you can see how it goes full expanded until it says “England is my pentaquark”, being a joke that many people shared on social media.
18The “England is my city” starter pack
What do you need to be Nick Crompton and start rapping about “England being your city”? Not too much, just a pair of dark sunglasses, a gold chain, some white sneakers, obviously a white shirt with white pants, a denim jacket and don’t forget the big blonde hair. This is a funny representation of “starter packs” that obviously couldn’t go under the table.
17Guys with hair like Nick’s
Nick Crompton is famous not only because of his viral quote but also for his appearance, especially his hair. Nowadays many people mock this hairstyle and use it as a reference of being “from the City of England”, a joke that obviously means to be as ridiculous as Crompton was in the video.
16Increasingly Verbose Nick Crompton
“Increasingly Verbose” is a typical meme that was created to use it with any reference. An anonymous user via Me.me decided to share his interpretation of “England is my city” beginning with a picture of Nick, that little by little changes to a rough drawing of him but with a long and philosophical text.
15Queen Elizabeth and her city
Not even Queen Elizabeth was saved from “England is my city” meme. Here you can see a picture of Queen Elizabeth serious with the word “Country”, but then she appears smiling (and evil according to some people) with the word City, and then you can read “Country is my England” just as a local joke between brits referring to the Queen.
14Washing your hands with England is my City reference
There’s no way someone would ever think that England is a country, but there’s still a chance. In this picture, you can see a dialogue between two people talking about England, with “Guy 1” saying that he’s from this country, and then “Guy 2” replying that it’s his favorite “city”. This ends up with some hands being washed as a way of saying “don’t want to meet this guy ever again”.
13Geography test and England is my city
Exams on school days are always a nightmare, and that’s why an anonymous person created this meme using a geography test as an example. In this case, the person makes you believe that the exam was really easy, but then it shows the “England is my city” reference as a way of saying that it was actually pretty hard.
12PewDiePie famous response to Jake Paul: England is my city reference
The famous Youtuber Jake Paul appeared in Nick Crompton’s viral video, and back in 2017, he tweeted that he wanted to collab with PewDiePie if he was real. This was a precious moment for many internet users when the answer PewDiePie gave was “when you come to my city England”, as an obvious joke.
11When Immigrants Come To England
This particular meme comes from the deep fried memes subReddit-it’s captioned when immigrants come to England. It’s a funny spinoff of the song lyric where is the rapper seemingly warning off arriving immigrants with laser eyes and what looks arm canons.
Dank memes also created this image-Jake Paul and Nick Crompton messing around with some heavy artillery.
6Free IQ Test
A Reddit user posted a screen grab of a free IQ test that asked a question using England as an anagram.
5Gibby From iCarly
Gibby from iCarly apparently looks like Nick Crompton.
Over in the images of England the subreddit, someone posted an image of a tombstone with a rest in peace caption for the rapper, saying “England is his city”.
A funny rhyming caption from images of England shows a nightmare situation for a local area homeowner to receive something unwanted down his chimney.
A really weird one is this post from means of the bank showcasing a pentagram made out of coffee beans with 5 cups of coffee at each point of the star. We don’t really get this one but thought the image looks cool.

Who Is Nick Crompton?
Nick Crompton, born February 5, 1995, is a UK YouTuber and musical artist. He was the Chief Operating Officer of the well-known social media clan called Team 10 until early May 2018.
Crompton became a member of YouTube on July 24, 2012, when he began publishing videos to his channel. He acquired a sizable following and was recognized for being the Chief Operating Officer of viral YouTube star Jake Paul’s Team 10 until early May 2018. He made an appearance in the music video “It’s Everyday Bro”, during which he declares “England is my city.”
Though Jake Paul says that he came up with it, Crompton became notorious for this lyric, with remixes and a ton of different memes of this technically incorrect statement being published to YouTube and plenty of other social networking platforms.
On February 5, 2018, Crompton published his first video after not being very active on the platform. It was a 24 hr challenge at Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt.
On March 7, 2018, Crompton accepted a boxing challenge and that became his most viewed YouTube video on his channel.
Jake Paul Downfall
Jake Paul was the master of his own downfall from a great role on the Disney Channel. This happened after he allegedly bullied his neighbors in his L.A home by hosting loud parties and pyrotechnic pranks. A master of monetizing controversy, this England Is My City music video controversy is a small blip- but probably not an unprofitable one, in the long run.
