Please witness the beginning of a brand-new meme dubbed Frog Nephew.
Racked reporter Chavie Lieber shared an adorable and mildly terrifying photo of her nephew Sammy dressed up in a homemade frog costume on Thursday, much to the delight of the internet. Please see for yourself.
In celebration of Book Week, Sammy, who’s 5-years-old, had the opportunity to dress as a character from his favorite book, so he chose Max Velthuijs “Frog and the Birdsong.”
Lieber’s sister Nechama put her DIY skills to the test, and using some ping-pong balls, a morph suit and some red and white striped shorts from Amazon, the Frog Nephew costume was born. Sticking true to the character, the costume also got a crooked smile drawn with a sharpie, which Lieber says is her favorite part.
One of Lieber’s coworkers noticed a striking resemblance to a viral tweet where a girl’s mother dressed up as her dog for Halloween. We’re beginning to see a great new trend here.
The tweet is still in its infancy, but we see a lot of potential for Frog Nephew as one of the best memes of February.
