First going viral in 2020, the Four Lads meme is an image of four British men all standing in front of a bar. It’s used to represent the stereotypical British man in 2021, with some of their defining features being Alexander McQueen trainers, tight shirts, and tattoos.
The meme blew up again last month, and now rumours are flooding social media that the four lads are getting their own Netflix documentary, but is it true? Let’s find out…
