What started as a picture of a famous actress falling down in December 2012 has become one of the most hilarious Internet fads: the Scarlett Johansson meme. In the original picture, the actress is wearing a fur coat, jeans and a darker-than-usual hairstyle, not to mention a ridiculous face as she braces herself for the fall.

This image has been superimposed into various scenarios to a very comedic effect. This includes sporty situations, like riding a wave, curling, playing tag, escaping a kiddie pool, riding a dolphin, in a wrestling ring and climbing a mountain. The Scarlett Johansson meme can also be seen in a variety of pop culture scenes, such as the infamous Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke VMA performance, the Splash movie poster, the iconic 'King of the World' scene in Titanic, movies starring both Matt Damon and Keanu Reeves and escaping her ex-husband's lap.
