The internet remains undefeated when it comes to finding an innocent photo and turning it into a meme.
The latest trending image to get the treatment is from the Tuesday photocall of the movie “The French Dispatch” at the 74th Cannes Film Festival. Timothée Chalamet, director Wes Anderson, Tilda Swinton and Bill Murray pose for photographers for a news conference, but their attire suggests they didn’t agree on a dress code beforehand.
Chalamet sported a pink T-shirt with slacks while Anderson paired a white suit with a pink shirt and tan tie. Swinton, who has wowed the red carpet throughout the festival with futuristic looks, wore an electric blue Haider Ackermann suit, and Murray carried out a look that Vogue called “wacky chic.” The comedic actor looked comfortable in a printed shirt with psychedelic patterns, blue shorts, sneakers and a fedora.
The clash of styles inspired Twitter users to come up with memes characterizing anything from vacation photos to art.
I would like this picture of Bill Murray wearing this outfit and two watches to the premiere of The French Dispatch preserved and put up at The Louvre next to the Mona Lisa. The balance of his outfit in contrast to Tilda Swinton’s sharp suit is HIGH ART. pic.twitter.com/90WudoGQPl

This one Twitter user tried to get everyone back on track, even if they gave Chalamet an extra “e.”
Good grief everyone is so bad at this.
