RAMIK MALEK: Awkward Promo Inspires Weird Memes

Rami Malek's performance in Bohemian Rhapsody won over Oscar voters, but his performance in a promotional video for Mandarin Oriental hotels is creeping out the Twitterverse.

In the one-minute clip, the actor stares into the camera and monotonously lists the things he's a fan of -- such as his mom, handwritten letters, chamomile tea and classic movies.

The awkward video has inspired dozens of memes and snarky tweets.

Here's what people are saying:

  • "A serial killer talking to you in his car before he drives past the turn he was supposed to take."
  • "When you're in a job interview and they ask about your leadership but you misheard the question."
  • "I feel like the camera should be panning out revealing a very heinous crime Rami Malek has just committed."
