Yes, we want to apologize in advance for the content of this article. It’s not that we don’t like Robert Pattinson. It’s just that memes are fun, and we thought that they might be a good way to get our point across.
The Meaning Of ‘Meme’
If you’re unfamiliar, a meme is a concept that is inspired by something – in this case, the movie The Great Gatsby. Here’s the synopsis:
“A young woman and her brother run a small carnival game at a county fair. In order to win some money for their family’s medical expenses, she teams up with a shady man to cheat at the game. However, their scheme backfires when the brother cheats as well and their sleazy antics land them both in jail. Years later, the brother meets a notorious gangster at the jail and shares a cell with him. They plot their revenge on the woman and her cheating ways, which they deem as ‘memes.’ The man sets up a trap for her at a new carnival where she works, but she manages to outwit him and escape with her brother.”
The Top Memes About Robert Pattinson
To start things off, here are some of the best memes about Robert Pattinson. We’ll start off with something super basic and then work our way up:
– Classic Rob Pattinson: This is an old meme that has been circulating around the Twittersphere for years. The basic idea is that whenever Rob and his brother, Jason, appear in public, Rob will always be wearing sunglasses and a blue baseball cap. It all started when Jason sported the same cap and shades during the premiere of the movie Bad Valentine in 2014. Since then, the classic ‘robs’ photo has been making appearances at a variety of events, such as the premiere of Venom and during the European premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. If you look closely, you can actually spot Jason’s signature ‘fishstirrer’ haircut in many of these photos.
– Cheating At Cards: While Jason has been the subject of many memes, it’s Rob’s involvement in the infamous 2013 ‘cheating at cards’ scandal that has led to his being meme-ified. In November of that year, Rob was photographed at a game in Cannes with a deck of cards hidden between his legs. Shortly after, a scandal erupted when it was discovered that the photo was taken during a private screening of the new Quentin Tarantulin movie, The Hateful Eight. The cheating at cards meme was one of the most shared photos on social media that year, and it remains one of Rob’s most recognizable photos to this day.
The Most Ridiculous Photobombing Moment
Now, let’s move on to another meme that is definitely worth talking about. This one concerns a moment that occurred during a promotional interview for the movie Sausage Party. Here’s the scene:
While promoting the movie, which stars Kristen Wiig and Will McCormack, the two comedians are asked about their impressions of famous people. After they both name-check Robert Pattinson, Wiig’s character says, “Is that the guy from the Cheating At Cards movie?” To which McCormack responds, “I think so.” Wiig then asks, “Did he cheat on you?” To which McCormack answers, “No, but I’m going to cheat on him!” Now, maybe Wiig and McCormack were just having a laugh, but this is one of the most shared photos on social media in recent years. As the caption of this photo explains, “What was originally a funny moment between friends became one of the biggest memes about Rob Pattinson.”
The ‘Who Shot Roger Rabbit?’
Here’s another interesting fact about Rob. He’s actually credited with having shot a scene in the 1981 movie Who’s Afraid Of Roger Rabbit? In the scene, a henchman named Eddie Valiant confronts a character named Jasper who is blackmailing him. The fight takes place at a carnival, and during the fight, the two men are covered in fake blood. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2017, Rob said that the scene had been a dream of his ever since he saw it as a child and that he often thought about the fight scene while working on the set of Cosmopolis. As you may have guessed, this was yet another reference to the old classic Robs’ photo, but in this case, the scene in question is not from the Cheating At Cards movie but from an earlier version of the story where the brother is named Richard. Here is the scene:
“Eddie confronts Richard at the carnival and begins throwing punches. As the camera pans away, we see that they are covered in fake blood. In fact, the whole movie is shot in a fake, bloody fashion. This was a stylistic choice on the part of the director, Terry Gilliam, who was trying to evoke the 70s horror movies that he loves so much. It was a very fashionable era, and that’s what he wanted to capture.”
A Picasso-Inspired Painting
We’ll end things off on a high note by sharing an image that was inspired by one of Pablo Picasso’s most famous paintings. Here is the image:
As the name implies, the painting is named Female Bikini With Waves, and it was originally created for a French fashion magazine. However, the image has been making the rounds on TikTok and Instagram ever since. This is undoubtedly the best work of art that is inspired by Robert Pattinson. It’s a pity that it’s not a painting – if it were, it would be hanging happily on the wall in his house. For now, we’ll have to make do with this image.
