Dolly Parton Just Kicked Off a Hilarious Meme Trend & It’s Already Gone Viral

There’s no doubt that Dolly Paton has inspired countless trends in her day — and this week, she sparked a new one with a hilarious LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder meme. She only shared the photo last night and within less than 24 hours it’s fast becoming one of the first viral social media fads started by a celebrity in 2020.

On Tuesday, the iconic singer shared a meme across her social media profiles showing four pictures of herself: in the upper left-hand, a buttoned-up pic of herself from her short-lived variety show Dolly; in the upper right-hand, a portrait of herself in a Christmas sweater sitting in front of a studio backdrop; in the lower left-hand, a casual black-and-white snapshot of herself leaning against an old doorframe; and in the bottom right-hand, a picture of herself decked out in Playboy bunny apparel.

This little eclectic stroll down Dolly lane would be fun in and of itself. But she took it one step further by assigning social media profiles to each — LinkedIn for the polished pic, Facebook for the Christmas portrait, Instagram for the boho hippie photo and, well, Tinder for the Bunny. “Get you a woman who can do it all,” Parton cleverly captioned the meme, adding a winking emoji.

Being the trailblazer that she is, Parton’s meme moved other starts to share their own social-media-squares. Joked Ellen DeGeneres of her own, “When my agent asks if I can play different roles.”

Jennifer Garner played along, writing of hers, “Yes ma’am, @dollyparton, whatever you say.” (Hers even inspired former Bachelorette suitor Tyler Cameron to try to shoot his shot with her in the comments.)

Shark Tank‘s Barbara Corcoran proclaimed, “You can have it all, just not all at once!”

Kristin Chenoweth nailed the meme too, giving a nod to her “favorite trendsetter,” Parton.

Conan O’Brien posted a version with a truly hilarious Tinder square, asking fans, “Which Conan are you?”

Fan accounts joined in on the fun, with The Office‘s handle sharing four contrasting photos of — who else? — Steve Carell’s Michael Scott.

While these memes may have just gone viral it’s not the first time we’re seeing them. According to Know Your Meme, Twitter users back in 2016 compared photos they’d post to their various social media accounts. But at the end of the day, we’re just thankful these memes exist and that Parton got this trend going again.
