Some fans think Ashton J.'s the heir apparent to another meme kid, Gavin. YouTuber Nathan Zed provided a perfect pairing of the two meeting face to face, with the emotional Gavin looking a little unwilling to pass the torch.
It's all love, though. Whether he's FaceTiming his girl or texting up a storm, Ashton J. has a complementary chill vibe to Gavin's all-too-real looks of frustration. And turns out Ashton J. pairs well with a whole host of memes out there. He's even already worked his magic on the "feel old yet?" meme.
Ashton J. has the good vibes we need to close out a rough year and look toward bigger and better things. There's a new meme kid in town, and he's certainly not going anywhere.
