The “Dawson Crying/Crying Dawson” gif celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2011 and new dad James Van Der Beek is marking the anniversary by mocking the most popular character of his career with brilliant perfection.
On Tuesday, James launched Vandermemes.com, a new website (Yep — it’s real! We checked…) that builds on the viral fame created by his crying gif. The giggle-inducing image has become a staple on messageboards and fan-operated websites in the years since its introduction in 2001. On the website, Van Der Beek uses his famous face to offer reenactments of all your favorite Internet emotions. Eye-rolling? He’s got that. Excited? No doubt. Sad face? Got ya covered.
There’s even an “Eager Beaver” and a new “Crying Dawson” clip!
