In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Zoe Saldana plays Gamora, a space assassin who just happens to be green (a pretty normal thing out in space).
Though fans don't think much about it, playing a green person means paying attention to all the little details. Green lipstick, for instance.
In a recent Instagram video, Zoe Saldana showed herself getting into character, applying some green lipstick. The video quickly went viral, and has been given the meme-treatment by Twitter.
The meme (on of Twitter's silliest) is fairly simple: the video of Saldana applying lipstick represents a green thing preparing to do whatever it does best.

If there's one thing Twitter will never tire of, it's a dumb meme that makes very little sense. Thanks for making it all possible, Zoe!
