The Michelangelo meme is the latest meme sweeping the Internet and it's hilarious. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie trailer debuted last week and since then the film has been receiving mixed reviews. While there are varied opinions on the film itself, what is not in question is the strange look they gave to fan favorite Michelangelo.

'Mikey' makes an appearance toward the end of the trailer in a short candid conversation with Megan Fox's April O'neil and in that short time we can see he doesn't look how were used to.

The scene that the meme mimics is when he takes off his mask to show his strange appearance. Rather than holding up the mask in the meme though, we see him holding up a picture, a magician's scarf and even a bag of weed. With the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie coming soon, the meme only stands to gain traction on the net. Stats for Disfigured Teenage Turtle Memes Trending: This Quarter & Hot
