Nicki Minaj So There's This Guy, also known as So There's This X, is an exploitable image macro and phrasal template featuring a photo of rapper Nicki Minaj looking down and smiling while holding her blue-and-white hair away from her face. The image originated from the 2011 American Music Awards nomination ceremony and grew in virality as a meme format in a moldy version throughout the late 2010s and early 2020s as a recaption template where people replaced the last word with various text.


On October 11th, 2011, Nicki Minaj attended the 2011 American Music Awards nominations press conference wearing a split dye half blue and half blonde wig. She announced the nominations with singer Pitbull and was photographed looking down and smiling as she pulled the hair away from her face. The photos were originally published by Getty[1] before being used in a HuffPost[2] article (seen below).


It is unknown when exactly the first meme adding the caption was created, but it was edited sometime in late 2019 to early 2020 to increase its grain and saturation (aka moldy), as well as superimpose the original text "So There's This Guy." While the origins of this edit are presently unknown, the image became the basis for further iterations of the meme from early 2020 onward (seen below).

The image is often edited to change the last word of the sentence, known as recaptioning, "So There's This Guy." The earliest known edit of the meme is from February 14th, 2020, from the now defunct account of Twitter user @alittleblurry. The post read, "So There's This Serve," and received an unknown number of likes and retweets before deletion (seen below).

The earliest confirmed use of the meme is on April 9th, 2020, from Twitter[2] user Bryson2g, where the word "Guy" is subbed for "Mental Illness." The post gathered over 200 likes in nearly two years (seen below).


On May 19th, 2020, the Instagram page @lesbimemez posted a slideshow of featuring the meme format, gathering over 3,000 likes in over two years (seen below).
