No, you’re not seeing double — the Meryl Streep singing meme is NOT the same thing as the Shaq singing meme, for obvious reasons. While the general vibe of the two viral Internet sensations are pretty similar, the context of the latest joke to take over the social media sphere is very different.
The photo of the 67-year-old actress was actually taken from the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards when she was cheering on the late Debbie Reynolds, who was accepting the Lifetime Achievement Award. While Meryl obviously just wanted to show her good friend support, people eventually took the beautiful moment and ran with it, creating our latest meme-obsession.
