Previously on Marriage Story memes, the internet tussled over an out-of-context fight scene from the Noah Baumbach film. Now it’s turned its attention to Scarlett Johansson’s dancing.

Johansson’s character, Nicole, is an actress in the midst of a divorce from her director husband, Charlie (Adam Driver). Early in the film, Charlie comments that “She’s a great dancer, infectious.” The Marriage Story Twitter account posted a clip in which she shows off her moves, and it quickly became a meme.

There were jokes about how white people dance, and the things white women get excited about.

You know, that is how people in pharmaceutical ads dance.

Of course, it syncs up with the Succession theme.

There was also recognition.

It made it’s way to TikTok, too.

Some people took issue with the original tweet’s statement: “A celebration of love.” And, to be fair, the dancing scene happens in the first five minutes of the film, before all the depressing stuff starts.
