A few days ago, Phatrick129 posted at Reddit, “My friends keep reminding me I look like a certain someone…” And yes, he does bear an alarming resemblance to the Overly Attached Girlfriend (AKA “Krazee Eyez Killa” AKA @Laina622). Laina’s hilariously creepy cover of a Justin Bieber song for a contest entry turned her into an instant meme.
It seems her meme power is so strong that simply looking a bit like her is enough to propel a person to internet fame, as Phatrick129 learned this week. His picture has quickly taken over the pre-existing Overly Attached Boyfriend page at Quickmeme, while Redditors photoshopped him in creative ways. Among the scenarios theorized at Reddit were that the overly attached boyfriend is really just “the overly attached girlfriend in her guy costume so the boyfriend still can hang out with her whenever he wants to just hang out with the guys.” Another Redditor posited that a guy “tells her he’s gay, she gets a sex change so they can still be together. Forever.” FOR-EV-ER.
Here are 16 of our favorite “overly attached boyfriend” memes.
Is there a difference between “overly” incestuous and just incestuous? Maybe the royal family knows. [via]
