15 Of The Best Dat Boi Memes You Need To See Right Now

If you have been on any part of the Internet over the past few weeks, you’ve probably come across an illustration of a frog on a unicycle. Sometimes he is a GIF animation, other times just a regular image, but in all of these scenarios, his name is “Dat Boi,” he is a meme, and I, like most other people, love him dearly.

Dat Boi is a truly dank meme because he does not really make sense, but, at the same time, he doesn’t have to. Basically, all one has to do to make this meme work is to post any image of Dat Boi on their feed and caption it, potentially, with either (or both) of these captions: “Here comes Dat Boi”  and “O shit waddup.”

His exact origins are murky. Some people have attributed it to an old illustration in a physics textbook, but according to some in-depth research from the good people at New York Magazine, it appears that Dat Boi is actually a conflation of two older, less popular memes that combined to make the Dat Boi a super-meme. In any case, people are fiercely protective over Dat Boi, even more so than former fan favorite memes like Damn Daniel and Mr. Krabs. It seems that people empathize with him because, according to New York Magazine, “Dat Boi is funny because the frog does not look like the kind of person you’d call ‘Dat Boi.’ He’s a frog, and he’s on a unicycle.” Who can’t relate? We all see ourselves in Dat Boi, which means that we can’t help but greet him with a “waddup?” whenever he cycles across our feeds.

Anyway, I love Dat Boi. I cannot say how long he will last, but I also cannot imagine my life without him. So, before the Dat Boi backlash arrives–which, as many people have been speculating, is nigh–check out these inexplicably perfect Dat Boi memes:
