Getting A Lot Of Boss Baby Vibes From This, otherwise known as Boss Baby Vibes or Guy Who Has Only Seen The Boss Baby is a phrase taken from a viral tweet from 2019 that mocked people who attempt to analyze media while not having enough frame of reference to understand the culture and influence that led to the common elements between works of art. Since then, the phrase has inspired many snowclones on Twitter.


The phrase originated in a tweet [1] posted by Twitter user @afraidofwasps on September 26, 2019, which read:

Guy who has only seen The Boss Baby, watching his second movie: Getting a lot of 'Boss Baby' vibes from this…

As of September 2021, the tweet (above) had received over 15,000 likes and 3,800 retweets.


On August 16th, 2020, Twitter [2] user @maxrwag tweeted a variation of the meme about the film Hotel For Dogs (below). The tweet received over 16,000 likes and 1,900 retweets over a year.

On August 15th, 2021, Twitter [3] user @jjdotbiz tweeted a variation of the meme about the film Annette. The tweet received over 2,700 likes and 150 retweets over three weeks.

Historical Applications

In July 2021, Reddit user and historian Tiako alluded to the "Boss Baby problem" as a legitimate concern for historians in a thread on r/AskHistorians. [4] According to Tiako, the meme provides an easily understandable comparison to the fact that because there are so few reliable sources about the ancient world, modern people's frames of reference for what that world was like can be severely limited and warped by the few sources that exist, through the same process as a movie viewer who has only seen The Boss Baby. Tiako's comment received over 600 upvotes in a month, and a tweet [5] about the comment (below) received over 4,000 likes and 1,000 retweets over the same period.

tom @tombomp Imao god i love the concept of talking about "the boss baby problem" in a serious answer about the odyssey I would also sound some caution by noting that this may be running into the "Boss Baby problem". There is a tweet that goes around every now and then depicting a guy who thinks a movie is like Boss Baby because Boss Baby is the only movie he has seen. Funny and all but it gets at a pitfall that faces historians of the ancient world, as the general paucity of source material that our frame of reference can be in many ways as limited as somebody who has only seen Boss Baby. Is this a genuine connection and memory, or is this a guy who has only read a literary depiction of pre-classical piracy in The Odyssey learning about another case of pre-classical piracy and getting a lot of Odyssey vibes from it? 5:12 PM · Jul 21, 2021 · Twitter Web App

This was a fun meme at first. Too bad it devolved into "if you compare any piece of media to something slightly more popular you need to go outside"

Seriously, compare anything to JoJo or Persona on Twitter and watch at half of the website gets mad at you
