The Brief: This meme involves an image macro of a man standing in front of a chessboard saying "outstanding move." It can be used to sarcastically or seriously applaud someone or something.
The image in this meme originated from a Spanish chess video. At one point, the video host recreates an epic move from a famous chess game, calling it a “maravillosa jugada” – an outstanding move. This meme has since proliferated as an image macro, first in Spanish, and then in English, to react to a variety of situations. It has been used both mockingly and as a way to express real admiration.
