After Umbrella Academy actor Aidan Gallagher is at the center of “lauv” memes after he performed his new song “She” on Instagram Live. Fans thought his pronunciation of the word “love” sounded more like “lauv” or “loaf.”

The latest Aidan Gallagher memes are in the form of “Live-Action Cast Release” TikToks. These videos typically see TikTokers sharing their fake casting announcements with photos of various celebrities performed to Børns‘ “Electric Love” mixed into Gallagher’s “She.”

Lyrics:

Baby, you’re like lightning in a bottle
I can’t let you go now that I got it
And all I need is to be struck
By your electric love

When Børns sings the word “love,” the audio cuts to Gallagher singing “love.” TikTokers usually insert a picture of Aidan Gallagher at that point.
