Zack Snyder’s ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ got terrible reviews. But all was not lost, it also spawned one of the greatest memes of all time was created: ‘Sad Affleck’.
‘Sad Affleck’ is a clip where an interviewer asks Affleck and Henry Cavill about the downright awful reviews, ratings and critiques that film had received. Cavill starts amicably chatting away, but Affleck looks into the deep abyss of his soul while Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Sound of Silence’ plays in the background.
And now it seems that the meme has in turn pushed the iconic Simon & Garfunkel hit back into the charts.
That’s right, Simon & Garfunkel are currently sitting at #6 on Billboard’s ‘Hot Rock’ chart.
