The new Joker movie has spawned some of the best memes.

The controversial Joker movie was released last week (4 October), starring Joaquin Phoenix as the infamous DC villain. The movie has been criticised for being "violent" with some reporting that people have even walked out of the cinema. However, others have loved Todd Phillips' take on how Arthur Fleck became the Joker.

Of course, with any popular movies, the memes started rolling in and the internet is losing it over one particular scene. Basically, in one scene the Joker is seen riding in the car. The same happens in the 2008 movie The Dark Knight, where the Joker was played by Heath Ledger. Someone pointed out the obvious similarities on Twitter, writing: "for those who didn’t catch the reference."

Now, everyone's mocking the original tweet and saying where the actual reference is from.

A cultural icon.

What hasn't been inspired by Danny DeVito, honestly?


Pay Krusty his royalties.

The expressions are everything.

A mirror image.

I'm officially done.

What would we do without the internet, right?
