It all started when a photo was taken of him at Disneyland looking miserable on a ride.
It’s pretty iconic but in case you haven’t seen it, here’s a reminder.

The photo not only made for hilarious memes, but even got a reference in Family Guy.
He was a good sport about it, later sharing a photo of himself smiling at the park, saying he was having an “absolutely miserable time.”
Now, a new meme has arrived to continue the saga. It’s a short video poking fun at what the vocalist might sound like on a roller coaster using the Smashing Pumpkins’ “1979,” and you just have to watch it.
