Artist Gives An Unexpected Twist To The “Distracted Boyfriend” Meme

Published 4 years ago

If you usually spend a good chunk of your day online, you probably remember the “distracted boyfriend” meme that went viral a few years back. The meme template spawned thousands of hilarious memes and is still widely used today. Recently, Swiss artist Damien, aka Unfins, decided to give the meme an unexpected twist by turning it into a funny comic.

This is not the first time the artist had done an “interpretation” of a meme. Back in December of last year, he created a 4-part comic inspired by the “woman yelling at cat” meme that went viral all over the internet. In an interview with Bored Panda, Damien said that it was the last comic’s success that inspired him to create the “distracted boyfriend” comic.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
