About

Fletcher Quimby Getting Interviewed refers to a photo of the character Fletcher Quimby, played by actor Jake Short, in the Disney television series A.N.T. Farm being interviewed with a microphone in a school hallway by a person pictured off camera. The image trended heavily on Twitter in 2022 as creators gave it various captions, mostly related to a controversial or hot take of theirs or regarding the awkwardness of being confronted with the public eye and virality. It soon became a trending reaction image. The original interview was conducted in 2011 by Fanlala.com.

Origin

On July 14th, 2011, the YouTube channel of fanlalatv uploaded a video in which they interviewed Jake Short, the star of the Disney TV show A.N.T. Farm that had begun airing two months prior.[1] In the interview, they talked to him about the show's plot, cast and how he got into acting. Over the course of 11 years, the video received roughly 35,200 views (shown below, left). Additionally, a month prior to fanlalatv's YouTube upload, on June 14th, 2011, the magazine PopStar! uploaded their own interview with Short to YouTube in which he's wearing the same outfit in the same school setting, gaining roughly 100,000 views in 11 years (shown below, right). The Fanlala.com interview is what was used in the original memes, however, the PopStar! interview was used later on as it was mistaken for Fanlala.com's.



Around the same time, Fanlala posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the interview, showing Short in the school hallway setting with the interviewer's hand and microphone visible. The photo was parallel-posted to Pinterest[2] by fanlala.com (shown below, left).

Despite later becoming notable on Twitter, the image of Jake Short as Fletcher Quimby getting interviewed was first used on TikTok by TikToker[3] disgusted_fletcher on May 15th, 2020. The video received roughly 1,100 plays. Two years later, on August 22nd, 2022, Twitter[4] user halleyscometrry became the first-known Twitter user to use the image, pairing it with a caption related to One Direction's Harry Styles. In two months, the tweet received over 210 likes (shown below, right).
