About

Does He Know? is a New Rockstars Thumbnail reaction image of the Batman character Riddler (Paul Dano) captioned, "Does he know?" Gaining virality together with What Was He Cooking? and other similar thumbnails from New Rockstars' YouTube channel, the image achieved notable prevalence online through 2022, inspiring edits and redraws as an exploitable meme format.

Origin

On March 7th, 2022, the YouTube[1] channel New Rockstars uploaded a film theory video titled, "The Batman: Does Riddler Actually KNOW Batman = Bruce?" The video used an image of The Riddler, portrayed by actor Paul Dano in the 2022 remake, as a thumbnail (shown below). The video accumulated over 854,000 views in seven months.



On May 1st, 2022, following the viral popularity of the What Was He Cooking meme spawned by the thumbnail from another New Rockstars' video, Tumblr[2] user campyvillain made a compilation post for thumbnails from the channel, which included The Riddler version (shown below). The post gained over 15,000 likes and reblogs in six months.
