But what is the REAL story behind the pic?

Well finally, the star, 18-year-old Michael McGee has revealed…

“Me and my friend Mathew were just hanging out in class ... so we thought he could make a funny tweet — as me and Mathew were quite well-known around school for being funny guys on Twitter — so I made the face and he captioned it something and it got little or almost no attention,” he told The Daily Dot. 

So any regrets about becoming a viral sensation?

“My take on being ‘internet famous’ is cool and all. But I regret not copyrighting the picture right away because I could have made a lot of money there!”

The meme originally caught the attention of the internet when the picture was posted onto Reddit in 2014 with the caption: “Trying to hold a fart next to a cute girl in class”
