When Ariana Grande recorded her new song Thank U, Next, the singer probably didn’t expect it to become one of the world’s most adaptable memes.
After all, the number is based on her former high-profile relationships with various ex-boyfriends, including her most recent ex-fiancé Pete Davidson.
Grande confronts her past in the break-up anthem with the lines, “One taught me love / One taught me patience / One taught me pain.”
Turns out, these three lines have proved to be one of the most versatile when it comes to the creative meme world.
Internet users have managed to transform the poignant lyrics into rib-tickling captions that are applicable to Cheetos, Kanye West, World Cup scores, Japanese anime, Zayn Malik departing One Direction, and more.
The sad lyrics-to-comical memes transformation even snagged the attention of Netflix US that issued a Shrek-themed response and Grande, who couldn’t help but join in.
See the best memes that surfaced and Grande’s response below.
