Some moments are just such a mood that they are almost begging to become a meme. One such moment occurred Sunday on UK TV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
When Arrow star John Barrowman had to eat unspeakable things for his so-called “Bushtucker Trial” (a challenge on the show where contestants have to do or eat very unpleasant things to earn extra food for their team), a very meme-able thing happened.
After having chewed his way through a big chunk of a bull’s penis, Barrowman buried his head in the crook of his elbow while delivering an unenthusiastic thumbs up to his team mates.
This move struck a chord with a lot of people who turned Barrowman’s thumbs-up moment into a meme that perfectly expresses the feeling of claiming you’re ok despite obviously being very not-ok.
We’ve all been there, honestly.
