Captain America is here to give you a talk about this new meme
Sit down. We need to have a little chat.
So, you screwed up. You went searching for new memes again, and you found this one that uses a screenshot from last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. It takes the PSA video that Captain America filmed for students who received detention, which included Peter Parker, and turns it on you. Captain America (Steve, for those who know him well) is looking directly at you. He’s here to talk to you about something you did.
What’s that? You didn’t do anything, you say? That’s not what Cap heard.
Did you…uh…did you read the comments section?

You shared this meme, which originated from a video, as a still image. Why didn’t you just make it a GIF?
You made a meme, but used a still image instead of a gif. pic.twitter.com/MoWOV93VYK

Maybe you’re just worried about this meme becoming too popular and the normies ruining it.
So, you see a new meme? You wonder what this meme is capable of in potential or if it would probably die out soon by normies. The way a meme is used eventually determines the future of that meme. So please, Meme responsibly. Your old pal, Captain America. pic.twitter.com/0xa7Nm8jVP

Look, kid. The world was going to find out about this meme eventually. It was just a matter of time.
