Obama not Impressed

After the summer olympics, McKayla Maroney’s face from her reaction of her silver vaulting medal went viral, but perhaps not in the way she would have liked.  The image of her unique and memorable facial expression was put in to millions of “memes,” depicting situations such as the Hunger Games, the royal wedding, and Van Gogh’s starry night, amongst other culturally iconic scenes.  Even Obama tapped into this viral phenomenon, so when she visited him at the White House, he mentioned it, and how he himself also makes that face on a daily basis, so they took this picture (left) together, now also going viral.
