8 Best Putin Memes From Sochi's Closing Ceremonies
Apparently, the Olympic ceremonies are really boring for the world's leaders. Everyone remembers Queen Elizabeth II and her not-impressed face during the 2012 London Olympic Opening Ceremony, and, well, Russia's Vladimir Putin attempted to steal the show with his bored expression during tonight's Olympic Closing Ceremony. Sure, it's been a long two weeks for Putin. He's no doubt ready to be done with this show and get back to being homophobic or whatever it is that he does as Russia's leader. But like Charlie White, who couldn't keep up his fake ice skating act throughout the Closing Ceremony, Putin was unable to hide his general boredom during the event, despite the fact that several parts were very entertaining. I mean, the show's producers made fun of their Olympic rings gaffe from the Opening Ceremony. What's not to like about that? But even that couldn't coax a smile from the man.
So like all good Internet users, people leapt at the opportunity to turn Putin's not-impressed face into many memes. We've collected the eight best ones for your viewing pleasure. We hope you enjoy them more than Putin enjoyed the Closing Ceremony.
1. PUTIN + THE CRYING BEAR
I don't know if this one is that believable — that seems like a little too much emotion for Putin to be showing. How sad is it that creepy nightmare bear is shedding tears for the Olympics ending, though?
2. DEALING WITH SOME BASIC B*TCHES
3. SLEEPY PUTIN
4. CHILDREN MAKE PUTIN SAD
5. THE EPIC GOLF CLAP
6. PUTIN LOOKING REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE TO BE STANDING NEXT TO ANOTHER MAN
But also he looks like he's maybe awkwardly holding that man's hand?
7. SAD PUTIN LOOKS WAY TOO MUCH LIKE HANNIBAL
Putin and Mads Mikkelsen's Hannibal Lector share a similar facial expression. That puts Putin one step closer to being a cannibal and this makes us uncomfortable.
8. HE FINALLY SMILED AND IT IS TERRIFYING
Go back to being bored, please!
