The year 2019 has blessed us with an abundance of memes, sensational scammers, and viral celeb moments—all ripe for the picking this #SpookySzn. ELLE.com is here to help you win Hallowmeme with our complete guide to costumes for people who love the Internet.
Who are Keke Palmer and Dick Cheney?
The very question that launched the meme heard ’round the world: Keke Palmer, actress, singer, and all-around hilarious human being, was asked during a Vanity Fair interview if her Nickelodeon character True Jackson was a better VP than Dick Cheney (Cheney, as we know, served as Vice President under the Bush administration). After staring at a photo of Cheney for a few moments, Palmer confessed that she has no idea who he is. “I hate to say it, I hope I don’t sound ridiculous. I don’t know who this man is,” she admits in the viral video. “He could be walking down the street and I wouldn’t know a thing. Sorry to this man.”
You Should Wear This Costume If…
You are truly sorry to this man. And, if you need a couples costume.
How to get it:
It’s pretty easy to recreate this iconic meme moment. For Keke’s press junket outfit, all you need is a simple tan blazer, black hoop earrings, and a slicked back ponytail. Spot-on comic timing doesn’t hurt, either. Your partner can take on Dick Cheney with a specialized rubber mask.
