There’s no shortage of memes that Kermit the Frog has helped inspire. While the most famous one is arguably a picture of him sipping some tea which inadvertently spun into the Tea Lizard debacle, a new Kermit meme has taken the internet by storm. Evil Kermit and his villainous temptations have spread through online culture, memorializing the Muppet once more through internet jokes and sparking a slew of remixes.
The scene on which Evil Kermit is based comes from Muppets Most Wanted, the 2014 musical comedy starring Kermit and company. In the movie, Kermit is approached by his evil doppelgänger Constantine who’s dressed in a dark cloak, just like a Sith Lord from Star Wars. Within the film’s context, it’s a look-a-like of the protagonist. But in the meme, it’s as if your evil side tells you to do something you know you shouldn’t do.
