White Blinking Guy Meme/Gif
If you haven’t seen this face over the past month on social media, then I’m not sure where you have been. This has been by far one of my favorite memes/gifs recently. This meme all started from a gaming show actually.
“A video from the video game site Giant Bomb. They run a regular series called Unprofessional Fridays, where they stream games and talk about them. The original video sparking the meme is actually more than three years old, and was snagged during a stream of the game Starbound.” -USA Today
Check out the tweet that started it all!
It was actually from Drew Scanlon, a producer for the show. He said he had been making gifs for a while but none were typically this popular.
So yes quite random- but it was absolute gold and within a few days, the internet had turned this guys blinking/ blank expression into one of the most popular shared meme/gifs on social media.
It has been used in a variety of ways especially on Twitter. Check out a few of my favorite courtesy of BuzzFeed!
As you can see, it can be applied to almost anything and I still have a hard time not giggling.
He even has his own Twitter account now with over 1,000 followers. Hit @WhiteGuyBlinks with a follow.
