“I remember when that photo came out. It’s actually a really funny story because we were legit late for something and Kevin was waiting on the corner. Nick and I were both together and we were heading to meet up with Kevin and he was just waiting on the corner looking at his phone, and now that it’s like a part of the whole meme family. I’m really proud. I think at first Kevin was like dammit, did I really just become a meme, but now that Kevin is quite the internet savvy guy I think he appreciates it a lot. I also use it constantly. I’ve Tweeted it and Instagrammed it a couple of times, so I definitely support Kevin memes” (shown below, right).
