Dark Souls 3 Invokes Sad Affleck Meme to Promote Upcoming Release

Hello darkness, my old friend…

You’re likely familiar with the “Sad Affleck” meme at this point. The “Sad Affleck” meme stems from an interview with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, after the pair are asked about their reactions to the less-than-stellar reviews. Cavill gives a lengthy answer, but poor sad Ben just sits there, with a somber expression on his face, chiming in only with an “I agree” when prompted. It didn’t take the internet too long, and after some creative editing the interview is now available with Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” playing over Cavill’s answer.

But this is old news. The new news is that the official Dark Souls Twitter account showed off some creative editing of its own, with a Dark Souls-themed version of the Sad Affleck meme. In the DS3 version, Cavill and Affleck are asked to reflect on the original. While Cavill answers, Affleck has flashbacks to dying. Dying a lot. “The Sound of Silence” is still there, as is the very sad Affleck face.

Dark Souls 3 will be available in North America on April 12 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
