Memes Inspired by The Weeknd’s Super Bowl Halftime Show


Weeknd’s Super Bowl halftime show completely exceeded our wildest expectations while delivering unexpected meme fodder. Just a few minutes after his historic, scene-stealing performance, the 30-year-old singer marched into an illuminated, funhouse-like set that was hidden in the middle of the huge stage and acted frantically lost between the mirrors for a moment before he started buckling his seat belt Hit “Can’t Feel My Face” on. The trippy moment and his furious expression made my wheels, although it was fast, immediately turn through all the assignable moods that it could embody. There are just a few situations in front of us in which I felt similarly lost and disturbed.

  • Me when I realize I forgot to turn off my straightener before leaving the house

  • I scurry through the subway station to get on my train before it leaves the station
  • I’m 6 years old looking for my mom in the supermarket after staring at the cereal cabinet for too long
  • I leave a store after buying nothing and trying not to look suspicious
  • I’m looking for a bottle of wine that I can open as soon as I arrive at 5pm on Friday
  • Me after being totally blinded and disoriented by The Weeknd’s halftime show

  • I’m looking for the willpower not to sarcastically betray every guy on Bumble who has pictures of fish on their profile
