Look: Can the Michael Phelps Game Face Replace the Michael Jordan Crying Meme?

Here are some of the best social reactions.

Published August 9th

Just when you thought that nothing could replace the infamous Michael Jordan Crying meme, there's this insane #PhelpsFace.

When South African swimmer Chad le Clos tried to psych Michael Phelps out with an animated warm-up routine before the 200-meter butterfly semifinal early Tuesday morning, the most-decorated Olympian of all-time shot back the most sinister expression you'll ever see from an athlete.

Think WWE's The Undertaker or the damn grim reaper himself.

Wow. The cold expression became known as the #PhelpsFace on social media instantly, with people immediately questioning whether it could replace the Crying MJ meme. Hey...it's possible.

And of course, an onslaught of hilarious internet slander followed.

Here are some of our favorites.

And what's even more crazy is that the #PhelpsFace matches the expression of his baby son, Boomer

Like Father, like son. You can't make this up.

Ha!

As if all those gold medals weren't enough, Michael Phelps just added to his Olympic legend.
