About

Jean Dujardin Sleeping is a photoshop meme that uses a photo of French actor Jean Dujardin laying his head on actor George Clooney’s shoulder with his eyes closed.

Origin

On February 6th, 2012, during a luncheon in Beverly Hills, California for Oscar nominees, an AP photographer snapped a photo of actor Jean Dujardin[1] joking around and pretending to fall asleep on George Clooney’s[2] shoulder. Both men were attending the luncheon for their nominations in the Best Actor category[13]; Dujardin for his work in The Artist[14] and Clooney for his work in The Descendants.[15] The photo was published on Metro UK[3] the next morning.



The next day, a single topic Tumblr titled Jean Sleeping On People[4] was created by Belgian Tumblr bloggers Jonathan and Roberto[16], who uploaded six photoshopped versions along with the exploitable template of Dujardin’s face. The original contributions included Dujardin sleeping on Barack Obama, Batman, and a teletubby.



Spread

On February 12th, Jezebel[5] published a compilation of images from the single topic blog. The next day, more images appeared on humor blogs Blame it on the Voices[6] and Crushable.[7] Over the next several days, the images were featured on news sites including Gizmodo France[8], the Daily Dot[9] and CBS News’ Celebrity Circuit[10] as well as the Sundance Channel blog[11] and entertainment blog Molempire.[12]

The images can also be found on Tumblr under the hashtag “Jean Sleeping on People”[17] as well as the tag for Jean Dujardin[18] in general.
