Sad Kanye, anyone?

Kanye West has had his fair share of memes from “Imma let you finish…” to the GIF parade that is the “Bound 2” video, but the latest—#sadkanye—might be the best yet. The picture, for those of you have been MIA from the internet for the past two weeks, was taken at a zip-lining site and features Kim Kardashian smiling next to a random dude as Kanye sulks in the background. If a picture is worth a thousand words, #sadkanye is worth a thousand memes. His image has been Photoshopped into every imaginable scenario: The Beatles’ Abbey Road cover, scenes from Forrest Gump, The Lion King, and more. We’ve looked at ’em all.
A meme is only truly a meme, though, when the guys at M.O.C embroider it onto a shirt. That day has finally come and M.O.C has put forth a collection dedicated to sad Kanye. The meme has now joined the ranks of Pharrell’s hat, Drake’s dad lean, Miley’s unforgettable VMAs twerk, and Jay Z’s awkward dive. It’s actually Kanye’s second appearance on the brand’s clothing—his first being the shrug he gave when he stormed Taylor Swift’s 2009 VMA speech.
You can find #sadkanye on a bucket hat, sweatshirt, and more. We’re leaning towards the bucket hat, TBH, since they seem to be making a comeback. Head over to their site to grab your #sadkanye gear and be sure to revisit our interview with M.O.C.’s brilliant founders.
