20+ Best Gladys Watching Memes from State of Origin

Without getting too political, it’s no secret our elected officials aren’t opposed to a good photo opp. Take our fearless PM, for instance. Whether it’s turning the first sod on a new Kmart or cracking into a FourN’ Twenty at a sporting match he knows nothing about, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has led the charge on candid happy snaps, but it appears he may have a new challenger. New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian has taken the internet by storm, after posting a completely-not-set-up photo of her decked out in NSW Blues gear awaiting the opening game of the annual NRL clash, State of Origin. Coke Zero in hand, tailored blazer in check, Gladys was the picture of nationalistic support, the only problem being, she posted it a good FOUR hours before kickoff.

The internet was quick to point out that Gladys had either received some poorly timed advice from the intern that runs her social media account or that she was indeed revving herself up for the battle by watching four hours of camera-twirling Gus Gould pre-game monologues. Naturally, Twitter did its thing, producing some bang-up Gladys memes in response to the awkwardly timed and framed image. Thousands of Gladys State of Origin memes flooded news feeds across the globe, with Guardian Australia reporter Naaman Zhou absolutely nailing the response.

Not since Bernie at the Inauguration have we seen a politician capture the imagination of the internet like this, which does make us think – Maybe that was her intention all along? Maybe Gladys was simply hoping young voters would take the meme and run with it? The NSW Premier is over here living in 3021, meanwhile, we’re just pumping out Gladys watching memes and chuckling to ourselves. Anyway, here’s the best Gladys memes we could find.
