'Euphoria': 'Is This F*****g Play About Us?' Has Become TikTok's Latest Viral Meme

Thanks to Euphoria, fans are excitedly recreating making “Is this f*****g play about us?’ into a viral meme on TikTok.

In the recent Euphoria episode, Maddy (Alexa Demie) realized that Lexi (Maude Apatow) made an entire play based on their lives. The moment led fans to look back on other plays and films that were based on real life, leading to a ton of hilarious TikToks.

Two TikTokers made jokes about how the X-Men comic books were heavily inspired by the Civil Rights Movement and leaders like Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.

Another poked fun at the fact that 'Dreamgirls' is inspired by the behind-the-scenes drama with Berry Gordy and The Supremes.

And for Disney Channel fans, one video made a joke about the fact that London Tipton, the character played by Brenda Song on 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,' is based on hotel heiress Paris Hilton.

Aside from the hilarity people found in the play, Zendaya has been taking viewers on a whirlwind ride thanks to her intense performance as Rue.

Zendaya recently spoke to Shadow and Act about what it’s been like channeling this character, particularly when it comes to how her character Rue will act in the back half of the season after her conversation with Ali (Colman Domingo).

“[She is] trying to make sense and maybe understand what Ali was f*****g saying to her. In that, Ms. Marsha, who I love, who is open with her own personal story with addiction and honestly with her, we just roll the cameras and let her speak,” she said. “There’s something that she said, which ended up being the title of the episode: ‘Trouble Don’t Last Always.’ She was dropping gems. And she was telling Rue, ‘You can’t have both, if you want your sobriety, then you can’t be looking for a relationship at the same time. Because you can’t do it for someone else. You have to do it for yourself.’ And Rue is not trying to hear it then. So my hope is maybe that by the end of this, she’ll learn a lesson. And I think that there’s a deep love there, obviously, that she’s shared with Jules, but whether or not it’s healthy or whether or not it’s the right time is a completely different thing that Rue’s going to have to figure out.”

The show’s season finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
