Meme Watch: Prancing Cera

By: 08.30.10  •  11 Comments

Edgar Wright, the director of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and the writer/director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, kickstarted a meme this week when he posted the picture of Michael Cera to the right on his Flickr page.

Almost immediately a tumblr page called fyeahprancingcera started, while sites like BuzzFeed started collecting user-submitted photoshops, and comedy tumblr pages like TheFrogman added more lulz.  I’ve collected twenty-one of my favorite Prancing Ceras below, along with a few photoshops of my own.

The next two photographs are the first thing I thought of, and sure enough, someone else had noticed this, too:

As an expert on the ways of gayness I declare this the gayest one. [via]

I spoke too soon, this is the gayest one. [via]

Wait, this is the gayest. [via]

Damn it.  Okay, it couldn’t possibly get gayer than this. Right? [via]

I stand corrected.  We’ve reached the limit.  Let’s move on before they start sparkling. [via]

Giggity. [via]





The answer to, “What is he running from?” [via]


And now, Michael and Homer hang out for a while:





Chillin’ out, maxin’, and prancin’ all cool. [via]

I didn’t know he was friends with Sarah Jessica Parker. [via]

Woah.  Stop right there.  This is madness. [via]

Okay, fair enough. This is madness. [via]


And, of course, an appropriately creepy .gif:

Improper bumper car usage! You guys are so getting kicked out.

Still more hetero than Twilight.

But don’t grow too accustomed to your new meme fame, Cera.  This isn’t over:
