Caption contests are an integral part of the Internet. From Netflix to ICC, brands have, over the years, taken the route of memes to increase online user engagement.
Recently, Google joined the popular trend with an image and asked people to share a few words to capture the picture’s essence and good folks of the web delivered with the funniest captions possible.
The image was shared on the official Instagram page of Google Arts & Culture. “#CaptionThis facial emotion,” they wrote. The caption further described that the bust is called “Childish Weeping” and was created by an artist named Franz Xaver Messerschmidt between 1771 to 1783.
Since being shared on August 21, the post has gained more than 4,800 likes and hundreds of comments.
