10 Puts on Sunglasses Memes That Will Make David Caruso Proud

The “puts on sunglasses” or “takes off sunglasses” meme started circulating from one of the famous character in CSI Miami Lt. Horatio Caine.  Lt. Horatio is played by actor David Caruso. As the boss of the investigative team in the beach area in Manhattan, he often is expected to solve the crime or be ahead in the investigation over everyone else.

Every episode starts with Horatio being called for a crime scene and he usually stands on top of a body and speaks a short but puny dialog about how he thinks the person died or been murdered. The scene always ends with Horatio putting on his sunglasses before saying the punch line and with the song “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by the Who in cue of the lyrics “Yeahhhhh!”).

The meme internet universe goes crazy when he puts on his sunglasses. That gesture signifies that the episode show is about to begin. So like all good things, when the internet got a hold of this priceless moment, it became a popular meme.

The meme is a crop from the movie Wolf Of Wall Street where Leonardo Dicaprio was nominated for Best Actor in Oscars. His role there is a fierce and a heartless but successful stockbroker who spent his time carefree on drugs, money, sex, and other vices. The movie almost won him Oscars. Do you think he was able to match Lt. Horatio’s signature “puts on sunglasses”?
