Ben Affleck's grumpy expression at the Grammy's on Sunday resulted in him becoming a rapidly-spreading meme.
The internet was so obsessed, in fact, that Daily Mailcommissioned a lip reader to reveal the terse conversation Jennifer Lopez and her hubby mumbled to each other unknowingly in view of the camera.
Reportedly, it went something like this:
"J.Lo: 'Stop. Look more friendly. Look motivated.'"
"Ben: 'I might.'"
But while we thought we were stealthy and sly with our quickly-generated memes, it turns out that Affleck actually knew the memes were circulating while he was still at the Grammys, all thanks to his wife.
According to TikToker @AlmostAnna, who was a seat filler at the couple's table, Lopez showed Affleck the memes with his bored expression during the awards show.
The creator Anna revealed that the two were actually very "lovey dovey" and holding hands the entire time even though Affleck's expression didn't change much.
She then shared the moment Affleck found out he had gone viral.
"J.Lo showed Ben Affleck the phone and was like, 'Oh my god honey look at this meme circulating about you.'"
You can watch Anna recount the moment below.

Viewers of the video thanked Anna for the clarification, many stating that Affleck frequently has that same stoic expression. They were also glad to hear that there's no trouble in paradise.
Anna also shared that the new information did not help make Affleck's expression any better.
"[Ben] was like, 'Oh god this again.'"
Yes, poor Affleck has been the face of a few viral memes in the past.
'Sad Affleck' had its moment during the Batman v Superman era, both from the movie and his promotion of it.
And who can forget the Affleck smoking meme?
However they appeared on camera, however, didn't change the fact that they had a nice night.
Lopez took to Instagram to share highlights from the night, captioning her post:
"Always the best time with my love, my husband."
We're glad everything is fine with the couple... and that Affleck has a sense of humor about it all.
