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.
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 that same day, earning 55 likes and 150,000 views in five years (shown below).
