Looking at something/someone you're familiar with, but having a memory of it, and no recollection of it. Everyone you know is somehow a bit of a stranger, and everything is new - but at the same time, you know it's jamais vu. Extremely confusing, and frustrating.

Get the jamais vu mug.
The feeling or fear that you really should have heard about an Internet personality/sensation/fad/trend before you actually did
I JUST found out about Ze Frank, Wintergatan and Seth Everman, and everyone else is like "duh…" How could I possibly have missed them for so long? Total jamais vu!
