This video of DJ Khaled has become an unstoppable meme.
By now, there’s a good chance you’ve seen the video of DJ Khaled having lunch in the middle of a river when he takes a sip from his wine glass and suddenly stands up with wide eyes, having a vivid realization. The clip stems from his pre-Khaled Khaled album teasers, in which he was slowly rolling out the list of high-profile features he had lined up for the album.
Back when the album was only about 98% complete, DJ Khaled shared the video, which became an instant hit with the meme community. Almost immediately, people began using different captions to describe the video, joking that Khaled had remembered to cancel his free Amazon Prime trial in the middle of lunch. Now that the world has had time to sit with his latest album, which is on pace to sell 100,000 copies and debut at #1 on the charts, DJ Khaled is becoming a global meme.
