The Brief: "Flex Tape can't fix that" memes present situations in which something has gone so wong, even Flex Tape couldn't fix it.
Flex Tape can fix that memes are based on the many-use repair tape’s slogan. “Flex Tape can’t fix that” memes use a photo of a man holding a sign with that phrase on it as a reaction image for awkward, cringey, or devastating events.
Similar to “oof size large memes,” these memes can be used synonymously with phrases such as “ouch, that’s gotta hurt” or “sick burn” in reference to someone being seriously roasted. The idea behind this phrase is that even the hyped-up powers of Flex Tape are no match for the destruction caused by an insult or embarrassing mistake.
