The photo was originally taken by director Jon Watts and posted to his Instagram Stories. Watts included the caption, “The cast loves when I take BTS pics,” referring to Zendaya’s disapproving look. Holland, meanwhile, looks like he’s explaining something to the actress and singer.
On July 8, the Instagram fan page @tomhollandupdates posted a version of the picture that has since received over 16,000 likes.
The meme template then spread to Reddit.
Anyone who knows memes can see that it’s the perfect setup, and Reddit was happy to respond.
This isn’t the first time Zendaya has found herself at the center of a meme. Back in September of 2018, she was the subject of a viral internet song called “Zendaya is Meechee”, based on her role in the animated film Smallfoot.
At the time, she seemed to enjoy the meme, or at least the fact that singer Gabriel Gundacker got her name right.
Sang my name right and everything 😂😂😂 https://t.co/1rKNc2eff9— Zendaya (@Zendaya) September 23, 2018
How she feels about this new one remains to be seen.
- ‘Zendaya is Meechee’ is the feel-good hit of the fall
- ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is a hilarious teen comedy with a great villain
- ‘Euphoria’ paints an unflinching portrait of Gen Z’s search for ‘nothingness’
