Dr. Phil (full name Phil McGraw) showed us he’s not a regular talk show host, but he’s a cool talk show host. He tweeted a photo of himself dressed like Kid Rock with a caption referencing the “felt cute, might delete later” meme on Monday.

It all started when Jacob Shaw tweeted, “Why does Kid Rock look like Dr. Phil dressed up as Kid Rock.”

One week later, the ladies on The View made Dr. Phil actually dress up as Kid Rock to see the resemblance. And he most definitely did look like Kid Rock. It’s hard to even tell the two apart.
“My Kid Rock x Dr Phil tweet has made its way to national television on The View. Thanks Whoopi Goldber, Dr. Phil, Sunny Hostin,” Shaw wrote. “Would’ve been nice to credit me and plug my band but I’m not complaining! Meme level = immortal.”

Twitter roasted the talk show host for referencing a meme that went viral last year. For someone trying to keep up with the kids, his meme game is a bit weak.
One person on Twitter wrote, “Insert GIF: *hello fellow kids*”

“I thought this was a parody account,” another Twitter user wrote.
Other people are wondering if Dr. Phil needs the help of someone like Dr. Phil.
“Dr. Phil are you okay,” one person asked.
But some are into Dr. Phil’s antics. As one person said, “Dr. Phil really been wildin lately and I’m here for it.”
