Who doesn’t love a good meme? Dolly Parton gave a new take on an internet-favorite meme. The popular meme shows a man and woman walking down the street, passing by another woman. The man is mid-double-take as the woman with him stares on in anger. Known as the “distracted boyfriend” meme, it has been modified many times over.
Dolly Parton Takes On ‘Distracted Boyfriend’ Meme
Dolly Parton may be 75-years-old, but she’s still keeping up with trends. She showed that her meme game is just as strong as unofficial ‘Meme Queen’ Loretta Lynn. Dolly Parton jumped into the meme game with her take on what distracts a boyfriend, while referencing one of her most iconic songs.
In Dolly’s version of the meme, the boyfriend is distracted by a girl named Jolene. His wandering eye isn’t amusing to his girlfriend. In a photoshop win, “Jolene” is wearing a sweatshirt from Dolly Parton’s merch line. The pink hoodie says “I Will Always Love You” on the front.
The legendary singer captioned the post with the joke, “How did Jolene get some of my merch?!”
Fans React to Iconic Meme
Dolly Parton has amassed almost 4 million followers on Instagram. Her update to the overused meme earned over 250,000 ‘likes’ and many comments. Many fans simply tagged a friend in the post to share the meme with other Dolly fans. But Dolly Parton’s post also got a ton of comments appreciating her sense of humor and wit.
Some of the comments include:
- Favorite take on this one ever lol

- I’m begging of you please don’t take my hoodie
- She loves you too! Why do you think she’s always been after your man? 💁🏼♀️
