The Super Bowl has officially come and gone and though the game itself did not turn out to be all that exciting thanks to Tom Brady‘s refusal to age, there was still plenty of entertaining moments throughout the night, especially the half-time show. The Weeknd’s unique performance proved to be divisive but more importantly, it became the subject of meme fodder, as everyone took to Twitter to rattle off their best takes on the mini-concert that featured no shortage of memorable moments from the popular singer. But tracking down memes the day after can often feel like a fool’s errand so here are a few of our favorite memes about the Weeknd’s performance.
Of course, the moment that got the biggest meme treatment was when the Weeknd seemed to run through a House of Mirrors looking extremely disoriented and confused. This was the moment that sparked a thousand memes and Twitter did not disappoint in delivering some truly hilarious one-liners.

And a few people noticed how the dancers seemed to be inspired by Jordan Peele’s recent horror film.
