Someone has found more pictures of the girl from the “distracted boyfriend” meme
G’day guys, girls and wankers. How ya going today? Now, I’m gonna lay it all on the line and guess that you’ve probably seen the ‘Distracted Boyfriend’ meme at some stage in the past year. It’s as common as the Queen of Elsinore and I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve seen it on your Facebook feed within the last week. Well…the girl in that meme who looks shocked at her boyfriend’s wandering eyes. She’s been keeping something from us all…
Thanks to Twitter user, Ernie Smith, we now know that the stock photo used for that meme was not the shocked girlfriend’s first rodeo. Yeah, nah, she’s been in heaps of stock photos – and if her facial expressions are anything to go by, she might not even have been mad at her boyfriend in the one we all know and love – she might just walk around like that all the f**ken time.
I’m f**ked if I know exactly how Ernie found out about this sinister internet secret, but as a social media journalist, we can be sure he was chasing some lead down a rat-warren of red herrings, dead-ends, cats and flat-Earth conspiracies.
The model, whose real name is Carla Ramos, is bloody good at looking shocked, exasperated and completely f**ken flabbergasted. That’s probably why her boss, Antonio Guillem, relies on her when he needs to capture the essence of a massive bloody surprise.
And, in fairness to Guillem, he seems like a top bloke who’s rightfully protective of his friends. “What really worries us and we are not going to allow it… is the use of the images in a pejorative, offensive or any way that can harm the models,” Guillem told the Insider.
And we’re glad, because we’d be almost as shocked as Ramos herself if anyone were to think that’s OK.
Final thought: What has to be said here is that young Carla, a top sheila by the looks of things, has the shocked look down pat. I don’t know if it’s any different to the days of hand models and shit, but I reckon if there’s a niche market for stock photos of women who can nail a range of emotions from what the f*********kkk???? to What. The. F**k? Carla deserves to be queen of that niche market. Good shit, Carla.
