TODAY Show Delivers New Meme: #Rokering

Oh man, this is hilarious. Even more so when you consider that all that is needed to participate is “a lamp and an angry face.”

On this morning’s TODAY show, weatherman Al Roker did his own, accidental version of photobombing. Something more akin to “video scowling.” As he subsequently explained, he had no idea at the time that the spot he chose behind investigative reporter Jeff Rossen positioned him perfectly next to a lampshade.

This is a most appropriate way to close out a week that began Sunday night with people (and pets) sharing on social media their own version of Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence‘s hotly debated bedsheet-like red carpet fashion choice. Thanks Al! Check out the fast-adding bits of #Rokering here.
