That Was Quite a Show is a quote from the Rihanna song "Take a Bow." The full lyric, "That was quite a show / Very entertaining," was taken out of context in a series of parodies that spread on Twitter in October of 2019. The clip is used as sarcastic commentary on television series and other events.


"Take a Bow" was released by Rihanna on April 15th, 2008. It is a single from her album Good Girl Gone Bad: Reloaded.[1] The song is about Rihanna being disinterested in taking back an ex-boyfriend who cheated on her.

On October 18th, 2019, Twitter user @g0ld3nretriever posted a clip from the song in which Rihanna sings "That was quite a show / Very entertaining," captioning it, "'Do you watch Succession?' Me, lying:", gaining over 1,200 retweets and 10,000 likes (shown below).


After @g0ld3nretriever's tweet was posted, other users took their clip of the song and added various captions. Many were about other television shows.

User @wiisportsmovie used the clip to joke about Fleabag, gaining over 50 retweets and 200 likes (shown below, bottom).

User @crotchner tweeted, "my parents watching me struggle with mental health for a decade," gaining over 190 retweets and 2,000 likes (shown below, bottom). The meme was covered by Junkee.[2]
