I love seeing glimpses into meme people’s regular lives. Dudes just some manager named Muhammad, living his best life.

He's a great manager, I'd imagine. He doesn't need to punish anyone for poor performance. He can just give them his signature look of disappointment, and they know.

That would never get old. I'm pretty sure I'd under perform for this (and I'm a verbal praise whore)

I haven't seen the TED talk in particular, but I've seen other videos with the dude, and he seems to be living the meme life to the fullest.

Once you're famous against your will, you have a lot of pain to hide...

Others have even told Akhtar that their companies printed his face on keychains to express their disappointment with employees or on mugs, presumably to prevent them from drinking too much coffee.

Bruh I watched that interview, and it was really cool to hear his stories, kinda wholesome, but in the last few seconds he completely messed up the wholesomeness, because he talked about creating a NFT 🤡

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

Well, I actually like NFTs these days, they’re a sort of told-you-so-cyberkarma. Imagine all the cryptobraggers now, with their very… very expensive links to subpar artwork that may not even exist anymore on the server!

It is a shame the painting didn't really capture the expression of the original photo. He just looks slightly bored.

[–] [email protected] 18 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

That's my first thought. There's so many layers of emotion in the original picture. I guess they can't use the original picture due to copyright or something like that.

Imagine he went to the museum, look at the painting, feel disappointed and make the original pose and expression :))
