Queer Eye food expert-turned restaurateur Antoni Porowski is part of a meme that is ping-ponging around the internet today involving SNL cast member Pete Davidson and Underworld star Kate Beckinsale.

On Sunday, a photographer took a photo at a Rangers game in New York City that shows Porowski looking a bit pensive as Davidson and Beckinsale passionately make out right next to him.

Or maybe he was just trying to play it cool or actually focus on the action in the hockey game. Regardless of what was actually going on here, the internet jokesters immediately picked up on the fact that Antoni looks like the ultimate third wheel in this photo, and the composition also lends itself well to jokes in the vein of the “distracted boyfriend” meme.

Here are some of the funniest tweets about Antoni, Pete, and Kate, including a few that make references to Porowski’s work on Queer Eye.

Of course, Netflix’s social media team took a crack at the meme as well:
