This meme has gone viral because all women can relate

A photo of a man shouting into the ear of a very bored looking woman at a nightclub has gone viral — because it’s the “internet’s most relatable meme”.

The hilarious snap was posted on Bourbon Bar’s Facebook page earlier this week, after being taken at one of their ‘Milk’ events in Edinburgh.

But it was only when a clever social media user spotted its LOL value that they made it into a meme that things kicked off.

Congratulations to Milk in Edinburgh on taking what I suspect may be the most relatable nightclub photo in the history of the art,” the clever meme was captioned. 

Since then it has been shared over 12,000 times, with people commenting on how much they ‘feel’ for the poor woman involved.

“Oh wow, I feel this on a spiritual level,” one person commented. 

“The essence of rejection is almost tangible,” another said.

While another declared, “She looks like the most bored woman in the world”.

Others speculated just what was being said in the moment the photo — which showed a man in a red chequered shirt ‘chewing the ear off’ a woman who looked less than impressed — was snapped.

The pair involved have since come forward to say they’re friends, but couldn’t remember what they were talking about.

One things for sure, she definitely looked bored to tears by whatever he was telling her.
