About

Brothers Playing Basketball With Their Dog refers to an AI-generated image from Facebook (amid the platform's AI Epidemic) in which two boys labeled "brothers" and a dog are posing with a basketball on a sidewalk. The younger, infant brother on the left side looks like a humanoid creature with no arms and a hunchback. The older brother in the center has no right foot. The creepy AI image became a meme in May 2024 after it was posted to Twitter / X. There, internet users turned it into an exploitable, re-editing and repurposing the oddly shaped brothers, specifically the infant homunculus brother whom some compared to a Smiling Friends character.
