What a week it’s been for memes. First there was yodeling boy, then there were international students, and now we have the “If you don’t love me…” transformation reference.

Thanks to K-Pop fandom, the beloved “If you can’t handle me…” glo-up meme from 2015 has resurfaced with a slight change in phrasing. “If you don’t love me at my…” has now become an internet favorite.

The first sign of its resurgence started with a picture of Mingyu from Korean boyband Seventeen. From there, Twitter caught hold of the meme, juxtaposing everything from celebrities to sneakers, for better and for worse.

From Spongebob to James Harden to Kanye West, we’ve gathered together a selection of Twitter’s finest “If you don’t love me at my …” memes below.
