Sanders’s inauguration outfit – a practical parka and mittens fit for the cold January weather in Washington, DC – promptly became a topic of fascination on Wednesday as Biden became the 46th president of the United States.
Social media users have shared tweaked images in which Sanders’s photo has been added to well-known films and paintings for comical effect.
Twitter user Ashley Holub shared a selection of memes on Wednesday, with the caption: “The internet really can be magical”.
Among the images she included is a version of Georges Seurat's famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, with Sanders’s photo added among the Parisian silhouettes.
One person also added Sanders’s image to a still from the 2018 apocalyptic thriller Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock.
Another image features Sanders next to Tom Hanks’ titular character in the 1994 classic Forrest Gump.
