🔗 Batman and Superman and Simon and Garfunkel | Pigeons & Planes

This meme is the best thing to come out of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The movie wasn't very good, and its misunderstanding of Superman and Batman is abysmal, but at least this meme inspired by the movie has launched The Sound of Silence to #6 on the Billboard chart. 

Simon & Garfunkel’s classic 1966 song “The Sound of Silence” has jumped up into the Billboard Rock Top 10 chart because of a meme. And a beautiful meme at that.

“Sad Affleck” has taken the internet by storm and racked up nearly 22 million views on YouTube in just two weeks. The video shows a dejected Ben Affleck learning about the horrible reviews Batman V Superman is receiving. “The Sound of Silence” comes in while Affleck stares at the ground, reflecting on every decision he’s ever made in his life.
