Mime Thinking Hard, also known as Masked Character Thinking Hard or Mime and Dash Squint, is an exploitable GIF of a masked animated character from the NSFW web animation Mime and Dash squinting in thought as he attempts to understand something. Following the GIF's initial use as a meme in September 2021, it has been used to show someone making a supreme effort to think about and understand something, usually something simple and obvious.


The GIF comes from a scene in Mime and Dash, which was uploaded to Newgrounds by animator Derpixon on July 16th, 2021. The unnamed masked character squints as he attempts to guess the second of three mime acts performed by the mimes Bonbon and Chuchu. An isolated GIF of the squint was uploaded to Tenor[1] on July 25th.

The earliest recorded example of the GIF being used as a meme was on September 4th, 2021, when Redditor Dapper_Dildo posted a meme made with the GIF to /r/memes.[2] The meme (shown below) received over 11,000 upvotes in a week.

Something that I've mentioned before was how I nicknamed that guy as "Mark" with the excuse that a "mark" is the name given by con artist and other scammers to their victims and also how the name "Mark" is 2 letters away from being the word "mask" so I considered it a fitting name.
Anyway, on the topic of this meme, I say I like it. Bon Bon and Chu Chu were obviously the stars of the animation and everyone did fanart of them for the most part, while this guy here was mostly ignored when you know that you can't run a scam without a victim, so I'm glad "Mark" is getting some spotlight, he kinda earned it.
