In 2017, the caption found its visual mate in the Big Brain Wojak meme. For example, in December 4th, 2017, an illustration of a Wojak driving a car made out of his giant head was submitted to 4chan with the message "tf2 2intelligent2furious" (shown below, left). On December 18th, a thread titled ">tf2 too intelligent to enjoy films" was submitted to /tv/,[9] where various big-brained Wojack illustrations cavorted (shown below, right).

On January 9th, 2017, a 4chan user submitted a "Big Brain Wojak ":https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/big-brain-wojak meme, showing Wojak seated on his own giant head while using a laptop on a desert island with the caption "tfw to intelligent to swim" to /pol/ (shown below).[8]



Big Brain Wojak

Big Brain Wojak is a character variant of the Wojak meme depicted with an exaggerated brain and head that surpasses the limits of his skull. Often, his brain turns into various objects and other entities ranging from a chair or a hot air balloon to an elephant and other animals. The memes featuring the character are typically used to illustrate posts and moments that showcase massive intelligence, often in an ironically overblown way. The humorously massive-brained Wojak is the opposite of the Brainlet variant of the character.

Big Brain Wojak is often paired with the "TFW too intelligent" catchphrase.
