This line was delivered by a man named Jordan Scott, and his video, originally from Oct. 8, now has more than 24 million views. Scott's brand seems to be delivering relationship advice about "females" from his car, but this video (the audio in particular) quickly got memed.

First: There's Scott's face, which is attractive but also has the uncanny valley look of a CGI influencer. His eyes were parodied, and some people looked a little deeper into his comments section for signs of life.

Others parodied his delivery style and relationship advice.
