If you spent one minute on social media last week, you almost certainly saw the Elvis movie meme “He’s white.” Users went crazy with comments, and the memorable movie clip became a hilarious and viral meme.
WATCH the video:
The Elvis biopic, directed by Baz Luhrmann has recently hit the theaters, and many have walked out of the cinema wondering what the hell just happened in there.
Although many people have described the film Elvis as chaotic and often strange and have criticized it for not being for everyone, nobody can say it’s one of those dull biographical films in which stars are glorified for no apparent reason.
The entire film is memorable, but one scene, in particular, stands out. The viral video shows Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks) and others gathered around a radio, listening to one of Elvis’ songs. They are astonished by the man’s voice, but the real shock comes when the crowd realizes Elvis is white.
Luhrmann, a director well-known for the raw scenes, has hit a home run with this one, hammering it into the audience’s minds. The camera captures everyone’s reaction, turning an ordinary-looking scene into a masterpiece, reported The Brag.
The video soon went viral. The clip has been the subject of wonderful and humorous memes created by Twitter users.
Someone wrote, “Excited for the Eminem biopic to reference this scene.” Someone person jokingly commented, “This is what Tom Hanks says when he sees Chet come in the house,” making fun of the actor’s infamous son, who has an odd preference for Jamaican accents.
Another Twitter user made a reference to LOTR, saying, “When the Fellowship discover Gandalf is somehow alive again after meeting ruin at the bridge of Khazad-dûm.”
“This is what I imagine what everyone’s reaction was when they heard Jack Harlow for the first time,” someone else joked.
Elvis made over $120 million at the global movie office, which has given Luhrmann the last laugh despite some initial criticism about taking on the biography. The Presley family gave it their blessing as well.
This is not the only video that went viral recently:
The former Eagles player Terrell Owens shared a video on Instagram that has gone viral. A heated argument between the man and his neighbor spiraled out of control, forcing Owens to phone the police. The man grabbed his phone and started filming the angry woman, whom he named Karen, in an effort to document the incident and share it with his followers.
Although an eleven-minute video clearly shows that Owens has kept his cool throughout the incident, the female bicyclist wasn’t willing to give up without a fight. Many of Owens’ followers noted that the woman quickly began acting all fake, shedding fake tears, as soon as the police arrived, despite the fact that she was anything but pleasant before the officers showed up.
The unnamed woman said the former NFL legend almost ran into her before getting out of his car only to start harassing her. “You didn’t have to get out of your f**king car … You’re a black man approaching a white woman,” the unnamed lady can be heard yelling while the cops tried to calm the situation down, reported Outkick.
