How Old Is…? refers to an exploitable image in which a crying man Googles how old a person is. He then Googles the life expectancy of something tangentially related to the person in his first search, usually a pun on their name, which informs him that the person he first Googled is nearing the end of their life expectancy, which makes him cry harder.
