For the meme to work you simply have to use the “gonna tell my kids” template, choose an image and think of a fitting scenario. Like Baby Yoda and Danny DeVito, because it’s genius and it also capitalizes on one of the week’s biggest trends: Baby Yoda, not Danny DeVito.

The meme works so well because, like the best memes, it requires a bit of internet and pop culture knowledge. If you don’t know who Baby Yoda is, or god forbid, Danny DeVito, this particular version of the meme is not going to do much for you.
