Meme Of The Week: This Dancing Pikachu Video Created Millions Of Memes

Detective Pikachu was released this week, with a large amount of critics calling it the first decent video game movie ever made. This curse that has plagued all sorts of franchises was unable to work on Pikachu, presumably because he’s so adorable that people are willing to spend hours just looking at his cheeks.

The creative team behind the movie, capitalizing on Pikachu’s cuteness, did all they could to highlight this, releasing adorable images and clips where he’s seen drinking coffee and making weird faces. Just before the film’s official release, Ryan Reynolds retweeted an hour and forty minutes long video that looked a lot like a leak of the movie. It wasn’t.
