If you were browsing Instagram on the morning of October 9 (and who wasn’t), you may have encountered a fairly strange post from pop sensation Ariana Grande.
With no caption or context, she posted a heavily cropped, blurry picture of herself with the caption:
i showed you my d*** pls respond
Some Grande fans were confused, but her more internet savvy viewers knew 25-year-old Grande was referencing a now-classic meme that got its start in 2014 when a nameless man snapchatted tumblr user sassafrassle with this picture:
The image was quickly given the meme treatment and recreated endlessly by the internet:

Many suspect Grande’s use of the old meme was a joke intended for her fiance, comedian Pete Davidson!
Either way, fans love that Arianna’s deep into the meme culture! Is there anything she can’t do?
