The Brief: A clip from The Office where Idris Elba's character says "I'm aware of the effect I have on women" has inspired a meme.
In the episode of The Office “Two Weeks,” two women co-workers are overtly competing for Idris Elba’s character’s attention and attempting to flirt with him. His character comments on this, privately saying “I’m aware of the effect I have on women.” This comment is a nod to the award-winning actor’s evident handsomeness. Eldra was named “sexiest man alive” by People Magazine in 2018.
This moment has become a meme format in which someone recounts a moment where women seemed to be flirting with or attracted to them. It’s often used ironically and humorously.
An ok maybe I am straight mash-up meme:
