The image, while circulated online, did not spawn a meme format until June 11th, 2020, when Redditor timcxk reposted it to the /r/memes[2] subreddit, garnering over 20,000 upvotes. On the same day, timcxk[3] and Redditor[4] Tunbing posted the two earliest derivative memes based on the format, with the posts gaining 25 and 45 upvotes, respectively (shown below, left and center). On June 12th, 2020, Facebook[5] page Troll Football India posted a version of the meme about football player Gonzalo Higuaรญn, with the post gaining over 140 reactions (shown below, right).
