Gallery Mondays: Michael Jackson Eating Popcorn

Michael Jackson eating popcorn thriller bet museum of meme

For the BET Social Awards last month, BET had a fun Museum of Meme in Soho, NYC that I couldn’t miss checking out.

While several of the pieces were quite funny, the meme featuring a painting of “Thriller” singer Michael Jackson stuffing his face with popcorn in a movie theater (essentially inspired by the meme that stemmed from this) with two real theater seats stationed underneath really got me.

It’s brilliant.

The art card description next to the meme, titled Michael Jackson Eating Popcorn, features a quote from Dave Chapelle: “He wrote a Thriller. Thriller.”

I just thought it would be appropriate for Oscar Monday with its film themed humor, so, enjoy!
