The comedy series Zoolander and Zoolander 2 are satirical films that are meant to be making fun of the fashion industry, oarticularly in the 90s. The first film came out in 2001, with a sequel coming out many years later in 2016. However, it seems the funny films have been given a new lease of life. Now, a certain scene from the first film has been given the meme treatment on TikTok.

What Is The Zoolander Meme On TikTok?

The trend itself is very simple. All it is is the same clip from the film interlayed with some text about seeing something unexpected.

The actual clip is off Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) stood taking pictures for an event when his rival, Hansel (Owen Wilson walks behind him. Zoolander is pulling his notable ‘Blue Steel’ pout but is evidently shocked and disgruntled to see his rival.

In the film, Zoolander is a three-time Model of the Year award winner and is on his way to collect the prie for a fourth year in a row. However, Hansel swoops in and wins the prize instead.

The faces of the two characters are intended to be charactures of the faces models pull, which makes the meme even funnier.

All the memes use the same sound which is YouTube Astrocapella, with the words ‘Oh, who is she?’ sang over and over again. Currently, the sound has almost 35k videos to it.
