The Brief: These memes make fun of Billie Eilish stans, who act as if her lyrics represent the pinnacle of human sadness, by comparing them to heartbreaking scenes from popular movies, TV shows, and video games.
Billie Eilish is a singer known for using sad and depressing lyrics in an attempt to come off as deep. These memes roast her fan base, which is thought to consist of young and privileged teenage girls, for identifying with her surface-level sadgirl aesthetic, despite the fact that they haven’t experienced any actual hardship. In an effort to ridicule her stans, the memes showcase scenes from movies, TV shows, and video games sadder than Billie Eilish’s songs.
While these memes are primarily dunking on 14-year-old girls, they also poke fun at the fact that boys of similar age, represented in the memes as “me,” take sad moments in video games and movies just as seriously as Billie Eilish fans do her music.
