Do you make games off popular memes/videos?

The past year I've seen a lot of popular games being released off of trending YouTube videos. Has anyone have any success with this? Here are a few examples: https://storify.com/dabontv/pop-culture-games

As I monitor the app store, most definitely everytime there is ANYTHING that goes on trending, some dev are going to make an app/game
about it. Now, it's the fidget spinner. Just search fidget and there are many games about it. It becomes ridiculous really. Some just a clone of flappy bird or other famous game with the spinner as the character. like wtf. lol

How or where do you monitor the app store? Do you mean just browsing?

Or rather than looking for a bandwagon to jump on, you could aspire to be the thing that other people are ripping off.
