Justin Timberlake Beat Everyone to the Punch with the 'It's Gonna Be May' Meme

Preemptive meme-ing.


This is your final notice that it's gonna be May tomorrow, guys, which means it's time to whip out that Justin Timberlake in *NSYNC meme, ASAP. We know, we know, you've already seen it circulate a billion times before, but JT himself is in on it now.

Yep. That would be Justin tweeting that "it is ACTUALLY GONNA BE MAY", because that meme is so unavoidable that it couldn't escape his timeline. And, because this particular one is dripping in all the noughties nostalgia, we don't care how many times we've seen it. It just never gets old.


For those who didn't catch the reference, it stems from the *NSYNC single It's Gonna Be Me, which was released in the year 2000 (WE FEEL ANCIENT), and featured Justin pronouncing 'me' as 'may'. Even President Obama has had a LOL at this one, as he proved in April 2014 when Facebook-ed a picture of himself alongside Justin with the caption—you guessed it: "It's gonna be May."

So, go forth, download the meme on Google images, grab some gifs from Giphy, track down YouTube clips, and let the world know that, guess what? It's gonna be MAY.

Oh, and hit play on the song, too. Because it was, and always will be, one of the best singles of all time.
