James Van Der Beek introduces James Van Der Memes and emotes. A lot.
We have passed the cultural point where Internet memes are based on celebrities. Now the celebrities create the memes themselves.
The latest example: James Van Der Beek, who understands the online popularity of a certain image of him crying on "Dawson's Creek" and has decided to take things a step further. Hence, he has given us James Van Der Memes, a site devoted to animated gifs of the "Varsity Blues" star having emotional reactions that serve as potential, more handsome versions of emoticons. (Because why use a colon and an open parenthesis to indicate your depression when you can go with "mild Van Der Beek sadness," as captured above?)
One thing is clear: after both this and Pacey-Con, the gauntlet has been thrown down. Katie Holmes, it's your move.
