The confetti at the Super Bowl LV has well and truly settled after a memorable night that saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take home the trophy and The Weeknd cement his name in the Halftime Show’s hall of fame.
Unsurprisingly, the night resulted in a deluge of memes on social media, from reactions to Super Bowl adverts featuring the likes of Drake to The Weeknd's unforgettable performance.
During his set list, the ‘Blinding Lights’ singer delighted fans by using the whole stadium for his performance, from taking to the field with an army of bandaged lookalike backing dancers to singing in front of a city landscape underneath a veil of fireworks.
However, the moment that really had the 'Twitterverse' talking was the compromising and rather stressful situation The Weeknd found himself when trying to find the exit in a labyrinth-like tunnel.
The tunnel scene resulted in memes aplenty, with some comparing The Weeknd’s ‘lost moment’ to the feeling after a few too many tequila shots and battling our way through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Here are the best memes from the Super Bowl LV:
The Weeknd getting lost
During his performance of 'Can't Feel My Face', the singer ventured to what appeared to be a room beneath the stadium's stage and into a maze-like illuminated structure adorned with head-to-toe mirrors.
Taking hold of the camera filming his every move, The Weeknd enthusiastically swayed and pulled it closer to his face while singing, as well as seemingly struggling to find his way through the tunnel, resulting in some hilarious memes from viewers.

Drake's State Farm advert
Drake joined NFL stars Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes in the State Farm 2021 Super Bowl advert alongside actor Paul Rudd.
'Drake, from State Farm,' the Canadian singer introduces himself in the clip, playing a stand-in for a man named Jake who works at the US insurance company. As the pair talk over each other in the clip, Jake tells the singer, 'Hey stand-ins don't have lines', much to Champagne Papi's disappointment.

If you were furiously typing 'super bowl' into Google this morning and accidentally wrote 'superb owl', then you're not alone.
After years of tech users writing the typo, and Google going as far as to create a search page for the two words and linking it to the Super Bowl, Twitter was flooded with images of owls on Sunday night.
Played around with a slow shutter speed today to show motion. This was one of the only pics that somewhat turned out. Hope you enjoy it!#TwitterNatureCommunity #birds #SuperbOwl pic.twitter.com/XuAznAK8N4
