The infamous Michael Jordan meme face, that gets plastered on any and everything that remotely has anything to do with someone taking a loss, is here to stay. The meme comes from Jordan’s induction speech into the NBA Hall Of Fame where the invincible icon, the same guy who scored 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assist, 3 steals, and one block in one of the greatest games in history and being called the “flu game” broke down on stage in a weeping somber.
Even though the meme comes from a joyous moment in Jordan’s life, in today social media society, the meme stands far greater. The meme is a great way to display an insult to one’s failure. In and article for the New Yorker magazine, writer Ian Crouch writes of depict the meme as a red flag on the great career of one of the greatest players in the game. To Crouch, the meme tarnishes the billion brand that Jordan has built.
To us, the meme is far not that deep, the meme just represents something that is funny. The Jordan brand can never be tarnished because of a meme.
