Are you familiar with the "Bro Explaining" meme? For context, it's a photo of a confident-looking chad explaining something to an uninterested beautiful girl sitting beside him. It's a popular meme that's been around for a while. But, it's a meme, so you don't expect it to happen in real life.
Except, well, it just did, and to a popular figure like the WWE superstar, Liv Morgan, and the WWE's Senior Vice President of Live Events, Justin Scalise.
Liv Morgan recently attended a regular season NBA game between the New York Knicks and the Charlotte Hornets at the Madison Square Garden in New York. Morgan was there to promote an upcoming WWE live event that will be held at the said arena.
While there, Morgan sat next to Scalise, who was obviously trying to explain something to her.
Given that Morgan is one of the most popular wrestlers around, the camera naturally panned to her. Unfortunately, it had captured the exact moment that Morgan was deep in her thoughts as Scalise was desperately trying to get her to listen to whatever he was saying.
It didn't take long for fans to poke fun at the extremely memeable situation as the clip went viral almost immediately after it aired:
We all saw that viral clip of @YaOnlyLivvOnce at The Knicks game last night, but there's more to the story than that clip shows... 😂#WWETheBump pic.twitter.com/pK22H6sPZF

Morgan later appeared on this week's episode of WWE The Bump to explain what happened, saying:
It's so weird to me what goes viral and what doesn't. I mean, first of all, I just want to say we had no idea that we were even being filmed. We had no idea that the camera was on us, which doesn't excuse anything, but that is Justin Scalise who works here for WWE. He's incredible. He was explaining something to me and I was watching the game and I was listening, but I was also kind of deep in my head thinking my own thoughts.
Morgan added that he apologized to Justin after seeing the clip go viral and she says that he was "such a great sport about it."
Morgan is currently part of the WWE 2K23 roster at launch. She isn't booked for WrestleMania 39, which is disappointing, to say the least.
