About

Snorting the Blue Pill and Red Pill, also known as Taking the Purple Pill, refers to an exploitable image macro series depicting Morpheus from The Matrix offering two different choices in the form of a red pill and blue pill followed by an image of someone crushing both and snorting the “purple pill.” The format is typically used by assigning various object labels to each pill, followed by a reaction of someone deciding to combine them and take both. The bottom frame used in this meme comes from the “Matrix Revisited” xkcd webcomic.

Origin

The top frame most commonly used in the format refers to the iconic scene from The Matrix where Morpheus asks Neo to choose between the red pill and blue pill, but the original artist of the illustration is unknown (seen below, left). The image of a stick figure taking both pills, crushing them and snorting the mixture in the bottom frame was originally part of the “Matrix Revisited” xkcd[1] comic (seen below, right).
