The Brief: An image of Spiderman appearing to rapidly hit the floor with a wrench is being used in both literal and metaphorical memes.

The Spider-Man hammering image macro meme comes from video footage of someone in a Spider-Man suit crawling on the floor and then hitting it with a wrench. It’s often used by fans to illustrate what might happen in a fight between the bug-based superheroes Spider-Man and Ant-Man.

Many of these Spider-Man memes are straightforward and literal. They represent an overzealous percussionist or someone hitting something repeatedly with a mallet, hammer, or another tool. They often use Photoshop to show what Spider-Man is hammering or what tool he is using in the meme.

This meme is also being combined with Will You Press The Button? memes to show someone enthusiastically hitting the button.
