Deep Thoughts With The Deep is an exploitable image macro meme spawned from a viral video by the Vought International YouTube channel as part of the fictional corporation's marketing for the character The Deep (played by Christopher Chace Crawford) in season three of the 2022 Amazon TV series The Boys. Though originally starting with a video, the meme was popularized through a three-panel format on social media in mid-2022.
On July 27th, 2022, Vought International's official YouTube channel uploaded a video titled "Deep Thoughts With The Deep" in which The Deep goes over various random thoughts and philosophical questions similar to the Philosoraptor meme, with the video gaining over 1.4 million views in two weeks (shown below).
The first known meme to use still images from the video as an exploitable format was then posted by Redditor McKee3 to the /r/memes subreddit on August 2nd, 2022, receiving over 2,200 upvotes and 35 comments in one week (seen below).
The format began to quickly take hold and spread across social media in August 2022, with people adding their own spin on things for The Deep to say while trying to be smart or humorous. An example of this was posted to Twitter on August 4th, 2022, with Twitter user @playboislime_ uploading a version in which The Deep inquires as to the clothing and work status of adult entertainment specialists, accumulating over 45 likes in five days (shown below).
On August 5th, 2022, the subreddit /r/MemeTemplatesOfficial received a request from Redditor u/Tandril91, who uploaded a version of the meme in which The Deep was questioning why if Halo 3 is considered so good if there isn't a sequel, with the meme request receiving over 3,200 upvotes in three days and several newer, high-definition versions of the meme template being created by Redditor u/ChamodFernandoRCB shortly after (shown below).
