Father John Misty Turns Himself Into A Meme at Brit Awards

J. Tillman, master of the internet

If you don’t already follow Father John Misty on Instagram you are sorely missing out.

J. Tillman’s feed is filled with photos of him looking at his phone during various exciting events, — from Taylor Swift concert (high on LSD) or on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, FJM is always looking bored. It’s his way of commenting on the fact that people spend too much time on the internet.

While at the Brit awards Wednesday night (Feb 24), for which he was nominated for best International Act, the I Love You Honeybear singer had a fairly solid idea that he would not win. “My publicist told me I’ve literally no chance of winning” he said later, which is why he put together a plan to bring his bored persona to real life.

When the camera panned to him before the winner was announced, he looks down at his phone looking disinterested. After the awards he took the clip and posted a number of videos to his Instagram, fused together with other meme-inspiring videos and tagging Mastercard, the event’s sponsor. From the pizza rat to Donald Trump, Father John Misty nails it all. Take a look below:
