Sad Kanye photo gives the Internet something to smile about

Cheer up! It's Friday, and there's a new sad Kanye West photo out there to add to the Internet's popular obsession with collecting images of the hip-hop star looking less-than-cheerful. 



The photograph, which showed up on Reddit on Thursday, was allegedly hanging on the wall of a zip-lining office "in the middle of Mexico." It shows West seated in the background, hunched over a bit, wearing a red helmet and staring at the ground. His fianceé Kim Kardashian poses in the foreground of the photo with her zip-line gear on as well, alongside an unidentified man.

Sad Kanye is a known entity online, and a Tumblr by that name collects images of West and pairs them with captions aimed at predicting what he's thinking as he's snapped looking sullen.

Comments on the new image also took a shot at reading Kanye's body language, including, "He looks like a kid who got dragged somewhere on a family vacation who just wants to back to the hotel and play his gameboy."

West is not alone. Sad Keanu is a popular meme of Keanu Reeves based on a photograph of the actor sitting on a park bench by himself eating a sandwich.
