Rockstar Games has put a popular internet meme in Red Dead Redemption 2 and it is none other than Distracted Boyfriend. It is actually a very clever take on the whole meme with Arthur, Brother Dorkins and a kid.
In Red Dead Redemption 2, you can take a look at pictures of story missions that you have attempted so far. One of the pictures for the second Brother Dorkins mission “Brothers and Sisters, One and All.”
Here is the mission description from the Red Dead Redemption 2 Wiki.
A street kid steals Sister Calderon’s crucifix. Arthur chases the kid through the streets of Saint Denis to get it back.
If you check the picture for this mission, you will find out that it is identical to the distracted boyfriend meme that went viral recently. Here is how both of these images compare against each other.
Looking at both images side-by-side shows that it is an attempt to recreate the meme from Rockstar Games. It works out quite well in the context of the mission as well.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has recently received its Red Dead Online multiplayer beta, which is available to everyone with a copy of the game. Rockstar Games hasn’t shared any details on when the full Red Dead Online experience will drop, but it is good for those who want to get an early taste of the online multiplayer.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now for the PS4 and Xbox One.
