The explaining girl meme is the latest explaining person meme to blow up the internet, but the first where it is a girl talking to a boy instead of vice versa. In this piece by KnowYourMeme
, the girl in the meme has been found, and interviewed. It turns out that she is from Argentina, and the photo was taken at a music festival there.
Funnily enough, the featured couple were actually in the background of an original photo the snapshot of them is from, which was taken in 2018. The girl's name is Denise "Denu" Sanchez, and the boy in the clip is her now ex boyfriend. The meme originally circulated mostly in Spanish speaking media in 2019 before resurfacing recently. She claims that she was actually just singing song lyrics to him, and that it's too bad some memes portray her poorly. She says, "They have treated me like a toxic girlfriend too! Hahaha. It's funny to see how people draw conclusions from a photo and think they know a lot about how you are!" All in all, it's a shame that many of the memes hold her meme character in a less positive light, but it seems like she has a good sense of humor about it.
