The distracted boyfriend meme finally gets the movie trailer it deserves


The distracted boyfriend meme has slithered across the internet for the past week. Naturally, it’s time for a stock photo to get its very own movie trailer.

Because who doesn’t want to watch a meme get turned into a fake movie that stars Sarah Jessica Parker and other big three-dimensional stars?

This is what the movie trailer looks like in the eyes of Vulture.

In real life, the boyfriend is named Mario and the snubbed girlfriend is Laura, and she told New York magazine this week, “It’s quite strange to be a meme, but also funny due to the imagination of the people.”

If that imagination leads to a film starring Jerry Seinfeld and Ed Sheeran (probably), perhaps all of the distracted boyfriend meme-watching will have been worth it.
