U.S. President Barack Obama met on Thursday with members of the country's gold medal-winning Women's Gymnastics team at the London 2012 Summer Olympics, and a photo taken at the meeting featuring Obama mimicking of McKayla Maroney’s “Not Impressed” face quickly went viral online.
The official White House description of the photo reads: “President Barack Obama jokingly mimics U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney's ‘not impressed’ look while greeting members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams in the Oval Office, Nov. 15, 2012. Steve Penny, USA Gymnastics President, and Savannah Vinsant laugh at left.”
Maroney took to Twitter the same day to pose the question: "Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President ... ?"
Maroney’s “Not Impressed” face became a meme in August when an image of Maroney looking disappointed with a silver medal hit the Internet. Sites such as Reddit, Buzzfeed, and Gawkers quickly began using the photo and theme-appropriate captions to express disappointment with various topics.
