In the new movie Palm Springs, Andy Samberg’s character Nyles and Cristin Milioti’s Sarah wake up to the same day, every day, which Nyles describes as “one of those infinite time loop situations you might have heard about.”
For everyone still following stay-at-home orders, that description also feels like it applies to life in coronavirus quarantine. What is a weekend? What is a Wednesday? When every day is just another day at home, “infinite time loop” sounds pretty accurate.
Palm Springs premiered on Hulu July 10, providing some much-needed new content for everyone staying at home. The saturated colors, Hawaiian shirts, goofball expressions, and nihilistic dialogue also made for premium GIF fodder. So, in addition to showering us in 90 minutes of mostly wonderfulness from Samberg and Milotti, Palm Springs also gave the internet the gift of new memes — that just so happen to also have big time coronavirus quarantine vibes.
Here are some Palm Springs memes that almost too perfectly describe quarantine.
For when you’re trying to explain what life is like when every day is the same.
For when lol nothing matters.
For when you’re a trash person who’s given up.
For when acab.
For when your quarantine buddy turns out to be pretty darn great.
