As anyone who had access to the internet in 2017 knows, the Distracted Boyfriend Meme was one of the most popular memes of the year. In fact, it was so popular that, as far as I saw, it was the only meme to receive internet-wide recognition as a Halloween costume.
But what do we really know about these three people in the Distracted Boyfriend Meme photo? Other than the boyfriend is obviously a complete douchebag, I mean.
Welp, thanks to the internet, and more specifically one man on Twitter named Andrew J. Abernathy, we are not only finally getting the backstory to the people in photo, we are also, most importantly, getting some closure… sort of.
After discovering the stock photo while at work, Abernathy soon learned that there were many other photos featuring these people which led to a story that I am sure will soon be optioned into a feature film by someone in Hollywood.
Wow. These two… they really need to go their separate ways. Unfortunately, according to Abernathy, it doesn’t appear that this is going to be happening anytime soon…
Maybe… just MAYBE… considering the fact that there are 30 more pages of photos of this couple someone else out there can piece together a happier story for these two kids.
And if they do, we are so here for it.
