About

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.

Origin

On January 10th, 2022, the first season of the adult animated television series Smiling Friends premiered[1] 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?

On January 15th, 2022, Twitter[2] user @Cybershell posted the first meme based on the scene, a Tails Gets Trolled meme that gained over 1,500 retweets and 10,700 likes in four days (shown below).

In the same thread, @Cybershell posted[3] two transparent PNG templates for the format.

Spread

Starting on the same day, users on Twitter used the PNG templates provided by @Cybershell to create memes based on the scene. For example, on January 16th, 2022, Twitter[4] user @Jacob_Pinecone posted a meme about YouTuber Nikocado Avocado that gained over 2,800 retweets and 14,900 likes in two days (shown below, left). Later on the same day, Twitter[5] user @DD_Allin posted a meme about Sayori from Doki Doki Literature Club that received over 3,200 retweets and 21,800 likes in the same period (shown below, right).

Spamton meme, to Twitter[8] and YouTube,[9] where it gained over 13,100 views and 45,000 views in four days, respectively (YouTube version shown below, left).

First it was "God fucking damn it, Kris, where the fuck are we" and now "Look Pim, I know it's our job".

Is multiverse crossovers the next big meme format?
