It is not the first time that Leo Dicaprio and his iconic face reactions have transcended into the meme universe to create hilarious content. But it might be the first time the meme has, in turn, transformed into a face mask that people can actually buy.
The meme originated from a still from Tarantino’s movie Django Unchained, where Leo’s character Calvin Candie (the bad guy) is holding a drink and laughing.
In all honestly, the face expression is hilarious; as it kind of looks like he is laughing at a very bad dad joke he himself has just told.
Regardless to the fact that the movie was released in 2012, the Dicaprio Django meme, which is how it has been baptised, started to grow very popular in early August 2020 on Reddit and Instagram.
Twitter users have also had their say about the meme, describing it as “the best meme image of all time”.
The DiCaprio Django meme that’s so popular right now might be my favorite meme image of all time. I laugh every time I see one. They’re all great to me, and it’s because of the image
Can I just say… All those people that keep posting the Leonardo DiCaprio Django memes… Please continue as it’s getting me through the latter half of this lockdown. This is my clap for you 👏👏 #Trueheroes
Why can I just not get enough of the stupid Leonardo DiCaprio meme from Django Unchained where he’s holding the shot glass and laughing seriously what is so great about this
Dicaprio’s laughing mouth, or actually Calvin Candie’s laughing mouth, has been morphed into a face protection mask and is being sold for $15.95 on the website Merch Yolo.
It is one size only and has three layers with soft elastic ear bands. Also, you will look hilarious; almost as if you were “laughing to not cry” at the mess that 2020 has become.
Are we surprised when a popular meme is printed onto a face mask for people to wear? No, we are not.
