G7 Leaders Photo Went Viral & The Memes Are Perfect

Bring on the memes! A photo of the G7 leaders has gone totally viral this weekend, thanks to a gloomy background, awkward smiles and some weird socially-distanced poses.

The group — which included world leaders like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, President Joe Biden and German Chancellor Angela Merkel — posed for the picture on June 11, the first day of the G7 summit in Britain.

Despite the seriousness of the summit in general, it didn't take long for the internet to start poking fun at the bizarre image.

Twitter users from all over the world took the opportunity to transform the original photo into memes or to add hilarious captions to the image.

CBS's Late Show host Stephen Colbert got involved in the fun, sharing the image and asking, "Before I order these figures, does anyone know if you can take them out and play with them or are they glued to the display stand?"

Jimmy Kimmel compared the group to the lost souls from the TV Series Lost, referring one of the show's final episodes by saying, "We have to go back."

Other creative Twitter users also made America's Next Top Model,Love Island and Avengers references.

It's not the first time the G7 summit has gotten a little weird. Back in 2019, Melania Trump was spotted lovingly gazing at Justin Trudeau, and the Canadian PM was also accused of going for a "fake" run.
