About

I Know A Spot refers to a snowclone that mocks people who claim to know a special place for a date or romantic activity, but the place turns out to be disappointing. The format of the snowclone generally reads, "(Boys/girls) will be like 'I know a spot' then take you to X."

The tweet inspired others to quote-tweet is and add their own variations. For example, user @Hafsahhxo[2] tweeted, "Guys be like 'I know a spot' and then takes his boys instead," (shown below, left).
