Look, Pim, I Know It's Our Job refers to an exploitable image based on a scene from the adult animated television series Smiling Friends in which the character Charlie attempts to convince his partner Pim to abandon attempts to cheer up their suicidal client, writing him off as "a lost cause." Following the premiere of the series, the exploitable format gained virality on Twitter and Reddit in mid-January 2022 where people photoshopped Pim and Charlie into various scenes with the original caption and created video versions of the meme.
On January 10th, 2022, the first season of the adult animated television series Smiling Friends premiered on Adult Swim. In the first episode of the series, the main characters Charlie and Desmond are assigned to convince a suicidal man named Desmond to smile. However, as the duo gets to know Desmond, Charlie pulls Pim aside and says they should abandon attempts to cheer Desmond up and "cut their losses" (scene shown below).
Pim, can I, ugh, can I talk to you for a second? Look, Pim, I know it's our job to help this guy and everything, but I think this guy is a lost cause. He has obviously made up his mind. Why don't we just cut our losses and get out of here?
