$50 Whatever You Want Baby is an exploitable image macro used in a series of memes in which a prostitute, standing outside of the driver's side window of a car, tells a man she'll do whatever he wants for $50 as he asks her to do something funny and non-sexual, like cut his hair or tell him she's proud of him. The earliest example of the meme was posted to FunnyJunk in 2015 and became popularized throughout the 2020s on sites like Facebook and Reddit. The captions are associated with several images, including artwork from Grand Theft Auto V.

On April 20th, 2020, Facebook page 102.5 The Bear Waco's Rock Station posted a similar meme where the man asks if she cuts hair, garnering over 290 shares in three years (shown below, left and right).
