For years, the “Unexpected John Cena” meme has been sweeping the internet.
The meme — a trend on the internet that goes viral — is for someone to take a video clip from, well, anything really, and add former WWE announcer Jerry Lawler exclaiming “John Cena!” as the WWE superstar’s entrance plays to the tune of a purposefully increased audio and bass.
Cricket Wireless decided to take the meme to real life, letting fans of the wrestler tell a camera why they love Cena and do their own introduction.
While they were speaking Cena blasted through a poster in the back surrounded by two men playing the signature horns from the theme music.
As expected, the fans freaked out. One child actually goes through a second or so of being scared by the surprise, and then quickly transitioned into losing his mind like any super-fan would.
