The 2018 Super Bowl was bound to inspire a few different memes, and that it did — and the best one may have been created thanks to a moment during Justin Timberlake’s halftime show. The meme is simple: It’s about a boy preparing to take a quick selfie with Timberlake when he came into the audience during his set. He is now known as Selfie Boy, and the memes from the Super Bowl halftime performance are honestly everything.
Like most good memes, this one does not entirely make sense. It consists of a photo of “Selfie Boy” staring at his phone, more than likely getting ready to snap a quick picture with Timberlake. But the internet took it to a different level, imagining him doing so many more things on his phone than simply hitting the camera button. And who knows? Maybe he was doing one of these things. We don’t know his life!
Desperate for a good Super Bowl joke, Twitter was on fire with Selfie Boy memes that are pure gold. You might not totally understand the reason the photo became a meme, but you’re still going to laugh at it… it’s kind of impossible not to. It’s safe to say Selfie Boy stole Timberlake’s thunder. Check out some of the funniest memes we found:
Okay, it’s official: We love this kid! He was definitely one of the top moments of the night.
