When the internet finds a new meme, the image can become an international sensation practically overnight. The most recent example is the "distracted boyfriend" meme, which features a man walking hand in hand with his girlfriend while leering over his shoulder at another woman.
The people who appear in the meme, which has been used countless times since it emerged several weeks ago, are stars in their own right.
