In meme formats, as is true in most areas of life, people love to take down universally bad takes or opinions they really don’t agree with. These stances could be political, or simply founded in blatant ignorance – think Flat Earth theory or other conspiracies. While it’s true that there’s no shortage of these «Things I Don’t Like» exploitables, this new one masterfully combines the concept with our beloved Lord of the Rings, making for a very fun and versatile meme trend.
The new format features Liv Tyler as the elf Arwen, demurely placing her fingers over the mouth of Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) after he starts to share a sentiment that’s either extremely stupid or downright offensive. If you’re a fan of the movies, it’s a fun way to roast everyone from crypto bros to self-important misogynists – the eye candy doesn’t hurt, either.
