Sad, Zip-Lining Kanye Is the New Sad Keanu

A newly discovered photo, spreading rapidly across the Internet today, shows Kanye West looking depressed while zip-lining on vacation with Kim Kardashian.

This isn’t the first time Kanye has been photographed looking a bit forlorn, even on what should be joyous occasions. The rapper is often photographed unable to conjure a smile, and has been known to tweet such laments as “Fur pillows are hard to actually sleep on.” We’re not the only ones who thought of Sad Keanu when we saw the photo, and we thought we’d give the Internet a head start on replacing that meme with the even better (?) Sad Kanye.
