Let’s hear it for the sassiest member of the Rose family.
There are some moods words simply cannot describe. That’s why, whenever any Schitt's Creek fan is feeling that certain type of way, they know exactly who to turn to: David Rose. The spoiled rich kid-turned-lovestruck townie became an unlikely source of relatable quotes, facial expressions, and mannerisms when Schitt's Creek rose in popularity and he remains the king of reaction GIFs to this day. So, the next time you're in need of some sass to convey your emotions, look no further than these Schitt's Creek David memes.
Even though Schitt's Creek ended at the beginning of 2020, the cultural impact of the heartwarming sitcom likely won't fade anytime soon. The riches-to-rags story about the wealthy Rose family losing all their money and moving to a small town started as a hidden gem on the Canadian network CBC in 2015. After a couple seasons, Netflix acquired the show's international streaming rights and the fandom grew increasingly more invested until its popularity exponentially grew in the show's final seasons. When Schitt's Creek's sixth and final season aired at the start of 2020, it became an awards season juggernaut, sweeping the Emmys and Golden Globes.
But the true impact of Schitt's Creek is probably best exemplified in the internet content it has spawned. While Moira's kookiness and Alexis' cool-girl vibe are hard to compete against, David Rose is a top contender for being the show's most meme-able character. His perpetually annoyed and witty retorts are simply the best for social media, and Dan Levy has clearly mastered the art of capturing all of David's ridiculous mood swings in his facial expressions.
Look no further for proof:
Clearly, David has a face and a way with words that were made to be memed, and Schitt’s Creek fans haven’t been shy about turning nearly every single David moment into internet gold. Even though the show has been over for a while now, David is still all over Twitter and Instagram, and he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Since superfans are constantly in the middle of a Schitt’s Creek rewatch on Netflix, new memes are popping up all the time.
And the fun doesn't stop there. Since the best way to use David's witty comebacks and expressive faces is in the form of reaction GIFs, Giphy created a full section dedicated to David Rose GIFs.
