The meme format in question involves a still from early on in the film, specifically the moment in which Pugh's character encounters a cult ritual sacrifice while backpacking through Sweden.
Obviously, witnessing two people jumping off a cliff would engender some sort of dramatic response, and so Pugh's expression of shock and horror is a given. However, what's been less expected is its renewed use as a great reaction pic to a number of iconic pop cultural institutions — including Animal Crossing and a terrifying Shrek balloon.
Simple, yet effective, this may be one of our favorite memes at the moment. As such, check out a few of the best things Pugh's reacting to, below.
