Please welcome to the stage: the first contender for Best Meme of 2017.
You know that GIF of Rihanna winking and sprinkling magic? Well, that's been cancelled. We've got a new wink and sprinkle in town and his name is Salt Bae.
Over the weekend, an Insta vid did the rounds of a chef from Turkey sprinkling salt onto a rather mouthwatering piece of meat. It's not ideal viewing for the veggies out there but here it is - and it's truly a sight to be seen. It's had over 3 million views in three days and it's mesmerising.
The sultry chef in question, Nusret Gökçe, has now affectionately been renamed as 'Salt Bae' and has been turned into one of the first internet breaking memes of 2017. Salt Bae is now on hand to help illustrate your thoughts and feelings, especially when you're purposefully trying to "do the most" or need to embellish a story to make it sound a little juicier.
