This Taiwanese Couple Hilariously Captured Their Own ‘Follow Me’ Travel Pics
In 2011, Russian photographer Murad Osmann and his girlfriend (and now wife) Natalia Zakharova created the now popular and much copied #followmeto meme.
The project saw the couple sharing photos of themselves in the familiar scene of the girl (Natalia) leading her guy (Murad) by the hand during their many travels around the world.
While there have been numerous attempts at copying the concept, no one has really caught social media attention as much as the original couple did.
Enter: Forrest Lu and Agnes Chien, a Taiwanese couple who seemed to have just revived the popular meme in what could be its most hilarious version yet.
The couple recreated the famous “followmeto” pose during a recent holiday trip in Hawaii. But rather than imitating the hand-holding pose of Murad and Natalia, Agnes applied a painful variation, dragging Forrest instead by tugging at his nostrils, hair and ears.
Within 48 hours, the photos posted on a Facebook community page immediately went viral, accumulating more than 130,000 reactions, almost 40,000 shares and 12,000 comments.
Netizens mostly praised the couple for their sense of humor, with some even expressing in the comments section that they too will try the same poses in their own trips.
