Russell Wilson memes took over the internet on Monday night
Broncos may end up being good. Russell Wilson didn’t look too bad, the team fumbled over the edge of the backfield several times, and the receivers slickly opened the ball to get the ball. One night, however, everyone – mainly Seahawks fans – rolled their eyes at Russ’s manicured public image and fatherly prankster leadership. had to enjoy that Denver lost in embarrassing fashion.
I’m not here to recap the match, I’m here to recap the reaction. This was a prime opportunity to use last season’s biggest meme against Wilson, and people have done it with varying degrees of success.
Let’s take a look.
Our first sampling uses a convenient green screen behind the meme to her husband Wilson ahead of the coach’s decision to try to score at 64 yards instead of letting new head Bronco try. moved down to fourth and brought the team into actual range for Brandon McManus.
I love using technology. If they had Nathaniel Hackett in front of the blue screen it could be infinitely more fun. Denver’s new coach probably saw how much love Brian Daboll received for his late-game gamble, and didn’t think about what would happen if this were to happen (predictably). ) terrible. Oh good. What else do we have?

Here’s Russ in front of a Bronco, specifically O.J. Simpson’s Ford Bronco.
I’m not exactly sure what the thought process was, but there’s at least a vague enough connection that one could chuckle. And it’s a lot better than the people who opted to put 9/11 footage behind Wilson. I’m not going to share that, or try to find the joke in it.
It’s like the people who play the most offensive option during Cards Against Humanity regardless of if it’s actually funny.
Speaking of people trying to be funny, KIRO 7 in Seattle’s Kevin Ko gave his best rendition of Let’s Ride much to the delight of the local news desk.
Forced laughter is the worst laughter. There’s nothing more disturbing than people being forced to smile while someone does a cringe-y bit. Ko was almost redeemable, but he really should’ve thought through the “Do I smell like corn?” joke. Oh, you smell like corn because Wilson is corny? Hilarious. Let’s get you onstage at the Haha House.
Some of the funniest “Let’s Rides” didn’t even come from Seahawks fans. Regrettable/unintentionally funny posts are the best. I’m here for every part of this tweet that aged horribly. Unironically hashtagging #LETSRIDE in a hype tweet shows a considerable lack of self-awareness, and that’s just the beginning.
I don’t know Riker Lynch, or why his handle is verified, so maybe he wasn’t serious with this. At the same time, he’s playing the bass in sunglasses and a Courtland Sutton jersey, and he also used the official team hashtag. My guess is this guy’s attempt at humor is holding up his phone so you can see the gif he’s laughing at, or playing the Seinfeld jingle on his Fender Mustang. (He definitely thinks ” Slappa da bass “from” I Love You Man” is hysterical, which I just… I can’t.)
The best use of Let’s Ride on a Monday night doesn’t even appear online. Shelby Harris, a defensive midfielder who came in to replace Wilson, shared his feelings after the game.
The Let’s Ride meme will only get old if the Broncos are good, and they most likely are. That said, on a magical night at the crucial moment, they failed to do so, and the internet came alive with the laughter of children (or really immature adults), and all true in the world.
