Jack Black is a comic genius. There's no denying it. Everyone loves him. He's charming, self-deprecating and just seems like he is so much fun. But recently he posted a new, hilarious video, and he didn't even realise what he had created.
Although Jack Black might not have known what he created, you can be sure that the internet spotted it instantly. Wait until you see how it happened. It's hilariously accurate.
You know the meme.
via: ShutterstockAntonio Guillem had taken the photo back in 2015 and didn't think anything of it. But then the internet found the stock image in 2017 and it went viral. Rather than being known as 'man looks at other woman,' as it was originally called, it became known as 'distracted boyfriend.'
It's pretty sexist.
via: ShutterstockThe original picture is obviously sexist and degrading. It depicts a man objectifying a woman, while he walks with a different woman. It basically encapsulates all kinds of wrong. But the internet fought back and recreated it the opposite way round.
Although was it originally the distracted girlfriend?
It's not the only version to come back from the past.
Or has it just been around forever?
@ELXGANZA Yoooo I found this one @ my local museum #distractedboyfriend https://t.co/MzRxTb7GqS— The Visiters (@The Visiters)1523917748.0
It turns out the distracted boyfriend was distracted more than once.
via: ShutterstockThis guy seems to struggle not to objectify women. And it does make you question why the girl would stay with him. Maybe she understands that it is just that this man happens to be surrounded by beautiful women. He can't help it that he's been conditioned by society to think it's his right to openly lust after women.
Is he a 'player,' or just a terrible human being?
via: ShutterstockThis guy really seems like a jack-ass. But although most people laughing at these images, some people think it is 'classic lad' behaviour. The problem is that these photos normalise sexism, when it should be abhorred.
In fact the meme is part of a whole series.

It started off mild.

Some people decided to keep it sexist.Some men like to have fun together drinking beer, others might prefer wine, or a life without alcohol. But they are all still men. Some women enjoy drinking beer, and that doesn't make them manly. That just makes them women that like drinking beer. This meme just perpetuates gender stereotypes that make it difficult to see everyone as equal regardless of gender.
People can be very perceptive on the internet.Phil Collins was a drummer and singer in the rock band Genesis back in the '80s, before becoming a solo artist. You probably know loads of his songs, like 'In The Air Tonight.' But gradually he has taken a route into pop music that has made him widely disliked, a bit like the guy in this picture.
We all know someone like this.

This meme sums up a generation.As the world continues to crumble before our eyes, it can be hard to believe that the current order and system are the best way forward. Young people have always been more left-wing, but increasingly they are looking for an alternative route.
That's when the photoshopping started.
Aladdin has come up against quite a lot of criticism.
Who doesn't love the representation of Henry VIII as the 'distracted boyfriend?'
Seeing as though it's #MusMeme day we had to share this classic meme from the Castle with you! #HeverCastle… https://t.co/zSPHfxPyL6— Hever Castle (@Hever Castle)1534938186.0
It's the meme that keeps on giving.

If you didn't do this 'S' did you even live?
It had to be done.
But now there's a new 'distracted boyfriend' on the block.There is no way you haven't heard of Jack Black. He's been keeping us in stitches for over two decades now. He first came to prominence in 2000 playing record-store geek Barry Judd opposite music aficionado John Cusack, in High Fidelity.
The moment we knew we needed Jack Black in our lives.School of Rock is one of the coolest movies of all time. Who doesn’t love the idea of suddenly becoming part of an epic rock band instead of being stuck at school? And with lines like 'stick-it-to-the-man-neosis' and 'you're tacky and I hate you', how can you not love this movie?
He will always keep us laughing.He hasn't just been in comedies. He tried some more serious roles, such as when he played Carl Denham in the 2005 remake of King Kong. Then there was The Holiday, where he played the very lovable Miles opposite Kate Winslet. But it is Jack Black's humour that makes him a national treasure. His role as Nacho in Nacho Libre is the perfect sort of movie for him to run wild.
Jack Black is well known for his love of music.Jack Black and Kyle Gass made a movie about their own band, Tenacious D. In the movie they are a record-breaking band in the quest to search for the pick of destiny. In real life they are still a rock band who tour around and play in front of huge crowds. It looks like fiction became reality.
Have you noticed it is Jack Black in all these movies?Jack Black has a pretty distinct voice, but when it's all animated it can be harder to distinguish people. Back in 2002 Jack was the voice of Zeke, a sabre-toothed tiger, in Ice Age. Then in 2004 he played the vegetarian shark, Lenny, in Shark Tale. But he is best known for being the voice of Po in all three Kung Fu Panda movies.
Recently Jack Black's found his more feminine side.In 2017, Jack Black starred in the remake Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. He starred with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart. The only difference is that Jack is actually playing popular, high-school girl, Bethany.
Now Jack Black has his own YouTube channel.'Jablinksi Games' has nearly 4 million subscribers and he has said that he is going to post a video every Friday. The theme is meant to be gaming, but it looks like this channel is going to be about anything and everything.
