Here is something you will have seen before:
What we’ve got here is a bloke banging on about something, and an exasperated girl absolutely not giving two flying f**ks about what he (you) is (are) saying, but is unable to move away so has to silently, stoically, put up with it. It’s an extremely common occurrence in nightclubs across the country, but never has it been captured so perfectly on film before. Just look at it - it’s majestic.
Anyway, obviously what with it being 2018, and the internet being a thing, the photo has gone viral, and Twitter has had its absolute way with it, as can be seen by the following shining examples of captionary:
And the natural progression:
Of course (and again, because it’s 2018, and the internet is a thing), it’s not been left alone and the backstory has emerged, which is a shame because it’s far funnier without any context. Still, the two revelers in the photo were tracked down and revealed to be Patrick Richie and Lucia Gorman, two friends from school who hadn’t seen each other in ages. Lucia told Newsbeat:
“I don’t know what he said but I know I definitely wasn’t having any of it.
“I feel like it was probably the end of the night and I was definitely ready for my bed.
“I probably just thought, ‘I’ll nod at anything at this point’.”
Patrick told Capital FM:
“It’s weird, my cousin told me it made it onto some Facebook page in Australia which is mental
“[Lucia] was one of my pals from school so she was probably fed up – she looks it as well. We get on she’s good fun.
“I’m so surprised because it was just quite standard, what’s the big deal.”
Anyway, long live boring, shouty men and their endless meme potential.
