The Brief: Vector from Despicable Me continues to show up in new popular meme formats from "you just got vectored" to "Hey" to Gru reading to "oh yeah" memes.
The villain from Despicable Me, Vector is the star of several popular meme formats including You Just Got Vectored and “hey” memes. In February 2020, he started appearing in several new meme formats on Reddit.
Gru Reading Next To Vector
This image macro format comes from the same clip as Vector “hey” memes in which Vector approaches Gru, who is reading a map of his plan to steal the moon. While Gru is waiting to apply for a loan, Vector brags about his plans and inventions. As Vector acts obnoxiously in this scene, these memes often label Vector as someone acting strangely and Gru as someone confused by their behavior.
This meme shows the potential of the Gru reading image to serve a similar purpose as the distracted boyfriend format.
In the bank scene, Vector gets so excited that he improvises a dance and says his catchphrase “oh yeah.” This moment has been turned into a meme format representing celebration.
