Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 4, Vol. 1 of Netflix's Stranger Things.

If you're not watching the fourth season of Stranger Things right now, what exactly are you doing?

At the moment all eyes are on Season 4, Vol. 1 of the hit sci-fi show, which is currently the fifth most popular Netflix title of all-time after amassing 628.1 million total hours viewed within the first 28 days of release. But it's been one particularly gripping scene that has made the rounds on the memeosphere, adding yet another arrow to the show's arsenal of viral moments.

This season's spine-chilling villain is a dark wizard named Vecna, whose curse feeds on the trauma of kids and kills them in gruesome fashion. And when he gets the plucky Max (Sadie Sink) in his clutches, her friends watch desperately as she eerily floats to her impending death, frantically trying to find a way to disenthrall her.
