About

Ronaldo Sipping, also known as Ronaldo Drinking, is an exploitable image macro that uses a 2017 viral video of professional soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo drinking from a large wine glass in a house and giving the camera a smile and a wink after. The meme, which began trending in late 2021, has been used in various ways and formats, such as incorporating music, text captions and onscreen effects to make it versatile.

Origin

On May 15th, 2017, Ronaldo uploaded an Instagram Story of him drinking chocolate wine to his profile. Before it was lost, the video was tweeted out by the Twitter page SBNation[1] that same day, earning 55 likes and 150,000 views in five years (shown below).


On November 5th, 2021, the YouTube channel peter26de[2] uploaded the first instance of the video being used as a meme, titled "Ronaldo drinking meme," which gained 281,000 views in two months. The video also uses the song "Feel Good" by Syn Cole in the background (shown below).



Spread

The video continued to spread in the following months to additional platforms. For example, on December 20th, 2021, it was then used in a meme about Spider-Man No Way Home, uploaded to iFunny by the user Nc_Populist,[3] earning 230 likes in 22 days (shown below).



The meme template was then picked up and used on other platforms like Telegram with more effort put into adding filters and objects using Photoshop. An example that references SpongeBob SquarePants was posted on January 3rd, 2022, by user Eternal Classic,[4] earning 12,800 views in one week (shown below).
