Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May has been made fun of online and off for various videos of her awkwardly dancing. Most of these jokes and memes mocked her dance moves, politics, and/or apparent desire to seem “cool.”

Her most recent meme-inspiring dance performance, Theresa May did a couple of robot-like moves to “Dancing Queen” by ABBA before she spoke at a Conservative Party conference. In variations of this meme, which is popular on Reddit, screenshots of May make her appear to be creeping up on someone, with overdramatic bodily movements. People have been using this meme to illustrate scenarios when someone dramatically walks in somewhere or awkwardly creeps up on something.
