About

Sad Jack White is photoshop meme based on a televised image of American musician Jack White looking upset while watching a Chicago Cubs baseball game at the Wrigley Field in July 2014. Upon being shared on Twitter, the still shot quickly became dubbed the “Sad Jack White” in the tradition of other dispirited celebrity memes like Sad Keanu and Sad Kanye.

Origin

On June 22nd, 2014, Twitter user AndrewCieslak[1] tweeted a screenshot of a televised Chicago Cub’s baseball game during which Jack White, who was visiting the city to perform a concert, was caught on camera looking rather upset while dressed in a Cubs’ jersey in the crowd. Within 48 hours, the tweet gained over 600 retweets and over 600 favorites.



The following day Slate[2] published an article titled “Sad Jack White Is the New Sad Kanye Is the New Sad Keanu” which featured the photo of White photoshopped into a photo with Sad Kanye and Sad Keanu.



Spread

On July 23rd, ESPN[3] published a post titled “Five best memes of Jack White looking utterly miserable watching the Cubs” which featured a round-up of the best examples of the meme taken from Twitter. The same day Time Out Chicago[4] published a post titled “Why so sad, Jack White?” which featured White photoshopped into photos of Chicago. The meme was also covered the same day by several other sites including Billboard[6] and Mashable.[7] On July 24th, SheKnows[5] published a post titled “6 Memes of sad Jack White and sad Kanye West hanging out” which featured examples of the two memes photoshopped together.
