In the most recent podcasts, both Drew and Jeff mentioned being used as a meme. Can anyone provide these pictures? Thanks!

Haven't listened to the podcast, but off the top of my head, this is an image of Jeff that I've seen used as a meme:

I've generally seen it used as a "I've been in [video game/piece of software] for too long" or something similar to indicate spending hours on the computer and completely losing track of time. Not necessarily VR. I've seen it here and there, but for the life of me I can't find many instances of it through Google searches, so I suspect it must have some nickname I don't know and it's likely completely dissociated from Jeff's name.

No idea with Drew, I've only seen Drew memes on this site, or threads about this site. He works best in gif form.

Haha thanks guys. The Drew one is so random though. Like, how did something as subtle as that become a meme? I'm used to memes being something ridiculous and out there (like the Jeff one). Maybe it's just because Drew is such a magnificent man.

Drew's deadpan stares/blinks (often in response to Dan) are the stuff of legend. It's not a comedic act he could take on the road, but his ability to be the straight man is impeccable.

I dunno, here's something I treasured by someone on the site years ago after one of the early Halo streams with Alexis . Not sure who to credit anymore!

I came in here expecting to be disappointed by the meme in question, but that Drew one is actually pretty great.

Aww thank you <3.

As to the question, Jeff's VR face got propagated by both Fobwashed on Twitter, and it was the thumbnail of a Crowbcat video (that got taken off because copyright issues with CBSi maybe?). Anyway Crowbcat is seemingly pretty well known/shared around the likes of GAF and Twitter.

Not sure how Drew's "meme face" entered the mainstream, but I for one am glad the subtleties of that beautiful man are finally being recognized.

Saw it on Tumblr a few weeks ago and was 100% sure the people posting it had zero idea where it came from.

My girlfriend ended up showing me the Drew one without realizing it was Drew (we have watched 7 of the 10 mario party parties...). She just thought it was s funny meme. I was stunned.

@poser: Meme is an older term. Dan talked authoritatively about its pre-internet meaning recently.

I want to know what people will name this meme if it gets big enough to be on KnowYourMeme, etc.

Either way, it's great.

Does the Drew face have a meme name yet?

Curious what dumb name the internet has given it. Or what image search you had to do for that to be the result.

It seems on both FB and Twitter (or whoever provides the GIF keyboard for social networks), Drew's face appears in the list if you type "blink wtf".

Maybe Alexis/Mary could pull some strings and also turn him into a Twitch emote.

@cikame: He's already addressed it on the podcast. He's aware that it's out of his hands now and that it'll almost certainly be used alongside a belief or viewpoint that's counter to his own but that there's nothing he can do about it.

Someone commented on one of the Drememe tweets that his eyes change colour from blue to brown when he blinks and I can't unsee it.

I think Drew is now known in meme circles as 'wtf blink man'.
