Others on the site began using GIFs and stills from the scene to imply that they were not fans of the tweets they were replying to. For example, on October 18th, 2022, Twitter user @soydel2001 used a still from the scene to criticize a person who posted art of Sonic the Hedgehog without his shoes on (shown below, left). On March 3rd, 2022, user @zanebible2 posted a GIF from the scene in response to a user who implied Joe Biden was having an affair with Nancy Pelosi (shown below, right).
