​Jack Black Walks Past Couple, Accidentally Turns Them Into A 'Distracted Boyfriend' Meme

At the end of last year, Jack Black launched his very own gaming channel on YouTube, Jablinski Games, which took off with an introductory video on 21 December. Just over two months later, he's now on 3.8 million subscribers - even though he only actually posted his first proper gaming video three weeks ago.

The rest of the content has mostly involved the actor knocking about, enjoying his daily life. Hanging out at the arcade, enjoying time with his sons, getting his beard shaved, working out, eating chicken salad... that kind of thing.

His latest video doesn't feature any of that sweet gaming action, but it does include a hilarious moment that sees Jack Black and some random couple become a real-life version of that 'Distracted Boyfriend' meme.

Having had his hair dyed and beard shaved, and completed a workout, Black went to refuel with some food.

Opting for the supposedly healthier option, the star decided to go for a salad - but couldn't help but steal a bite of his companion's cheeseburger.

Musing on his meal while walking along the street, two random people clock the famous face, and their reaction is priceless.

One YouTuber spotted the moment, commenting: "That looks like that one meme where the guy holding hands with his girl turns his head and looks at another girl."

Someone else agreed, saying: "Dude's reaction at 8:12 should be a meme."

Another wrote: "That guy in the background just realised that he just walked past THE jack black."

A fourth added: "I've seen this meme before."

The meme has been used to illustrate everything - even politics:

The meme in question is, of course, the one in which a guy walking hand-in-hand with his girlfriend has turned 180 degrees to check out another woman - much to the shock and disapproval of his other half.

The two real-life people featured in the photo are called Laura and Mario, who understandably have found their bout of viral fame to be pretty strange.

Speaking to LADBible, Laura said: "For me it was a curious and funny photo shoot, especially when we had to make the photos like the meme, more humorous. When people saw us simulate those scenes in the street, they stopped to look and laugh - in my case, I had to have a more serious face. I had a hard time keeping it."

Antonio Guillem, who took the photo, added: "Because we were having a great sales response to our work, we decided to take a few risks planning a session representing the infidelity concept in relationships in a playful and fun way.

"As I always work with the same models, it was quite easy to create the situation even though it was quite challenging to achieve face expressions that were believable.

"Mainly, because we always have a really great work atmosphere and almost all the time one of the models was laughing while we were trying to take the picture."
