Even if you didn’t look at a calendar on Monday, May 1, there’s a very slim chance you missed the various memes or gifs such as the one below.
As the popular saying goes, “If you can’t beat them, join them,” and that’s just want Timberlake did. On Monday, he took part with world as he tweeted, “Hey guys…it’s May.”
Hey guys… it's May.

The meme references the *NYSNC song, “It’s Gonna Be Me,” in which the word “me” sounds a lot more like “May.” It has become part of an annual meme that has brought new life to the hit song that was originally released in 2000.
However, Timberlake wasn’t the only boy band member poking fun at his famous line. The Backstreet Boys decided to also participate by playing off one of their hits, “As Long as You Love Me.”

Whoever came up with the meme was a genius because it never seems to get old!
