Some memes last a couple days. Others entertain for years (we’re looking at you, Distracted Boyfriend). And then there are the memes that inexplicably hold on for weeks – somehow getting better with age. “For the Better, Right?” falls into that category. It’s actually been months since the Star Wars format was first utilized to roast Elon Musk. But we’re at a point where we almost can’t remember scrolling through Twitter and Reddit without seeing some riff on Padme (Natalie Portman) and Anakin’s (Hayden Christensen) romantic picnic in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. Against all odds, we’re not really mad about it.
While we enjoyed the first iterations of this meme (which, surprisingly, didn’t start on r/prequelmemes), over time it’s become pretty self-aware – ignoring the clamor of haters who wish death upon the format. The jokes have gotten dirtier, dumber, and even more political. And somehow, they’re keeping our attention. We’ve put together some of the latest and greatest examples for your enjoyment, but we’re pretty sure there’s more meta humor to come.
