'I Made A New Friend' Memes Are A Solid Mix Of Donnie Darko And Self-Deprecation

2001's Donnie Darko, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, has been making a bit of a comeback on the internet this year. We're not sure if it's due to millennial nostalgia/escapism or because the psychological thriller kind of reflects the puzzling insanity of 2020. In the last couple months, one format in particular has been popping up all over Instagram and Reddit. It's from a scene in which Donnie Darko (Gyllenhaal) tells his psychiatrist, Dr. Thurman, about a new friend he's made. Thurman asks if the friend is real or imaginary, and Donnie confirms that the friend does not actually exist. 

It's a sad moment, and it's no wonder that the memes it's inspired are pretty self-deprecating and depressing. They mostly riff on how difficult it is to make a real connection in this world - but some of them focus on how futile it is to try to make it as a musician. Others are just straight up shitposts about poopoo or peepee. This gallery boasts all of the above, and more. At the end of the day, these memes just make us yearn to go out into the real world and make friends like we used to. Hopefully it happens sooner rather than later.

If you're in the "Life's a bitch and then you die" camp, you're probably going to enjoy this gallery of memes. They're for the people who lean into their pessimism, and perhaps have a habit of calling it "realism." For the people who don't have the energy to pretend that everything's okay. For the people who accept the pain and use dark humor to cope. And most of all, these nuggets of moroseness are for the people who can't handle another wholesome or cutesy memes.

44 Action Hero Memes That Are Brimming With Testosterone

As brutal as the lockdowns and quarantine have felt, we like to look for silver linings. For many of us, this means more excuses to escape reality via television and movies. Action films are high up on our list of escapist genres. There's something weirdly therapeutic about watching a character kick major ass. Instagram meme creators such as @snackytuna and @bread_loafington take the heroes (think Sylvester Stallone and Mr. T) of testosterone-filled movies and make them the subjects of some seriously relatable and self-deprecating memes. While the image macros don't pass the Bechdel test, they're still extremely entertaining. If you like what you see, give these accounts a follow on Instagram. We think they deserve it.

'Robotnik Pressing Red Button' Memes Celebrate Peoples Bad Choices

It seems like a decade ago that we were lamenting the Sonic movie's terrible animation. Even the movie's February 14 release seems like it happened in another lifetime. But the film (which actually got solid reviews) has more to offer than 100 minutes of boredom-busting. It's inspired more than a few excellent dank memes, and the latest format features Jim Carrey as Sonic's nemesis, Robotnik. The meme remixes the classic Daily Struggle format by adding a panel of Robotnik eagerly selecting the negative red button. It's being used to mock everyone from gullible fake-news spreading aunts to gamers, and it's quickly becoming one of the more popular formats on Reddit. We've put together a healthy handful of our favorite examples, but you can read more about the evil goodness on Know Your Meme. Happy scrolling!

Mace Windu Vs. Wallace Palpatine Is A Brilliant Meme Mashup

Well, we've got to add this one to the list of meme mashups that seriously surprised us but work extremely well. The photo used for the meme is from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, a scene during which Mace Windu confronts Emperor Palpatine. In this meme, however, Palpatine is replaced by a very unthreatening image of Wallace from the Wallace and Gromit series of movies. The juxtaposition is hilariously absurd, perfect for self-deprecating memes. We've put our favorites in this gallery, but you can read more about this meme over at Know Your Meme.
