Let’s be honest: Much of 2016 was a very confusing mess, and it’s likely that 2017 will be no different. So we can be thankful that we now have Dave Scanlon to help us express our confusion. The gif image known as the “Dave Scanlon Reaction” is a.... Reaction meme, used to represent when someone is confused, surprised, or insulted. If you’re curious as to who Dave Scanlon is, he is a video editor at the video game website “Giant Bomb.” His original reaction was to one of his colleagues making a rather lewd joke. Due to the sheer versatility that the gif has, it has very quickly spread across social media platforms, most notably Twitter. With how 2017 has went so far, we’ll definitely need this.
