"Not Bad" Obama Face

The “Not Bad” Obama Face meme is based on a press image of the then President of the UNited States, Barack Obama, taken by a Reuters photojournalist while Obama and Lady Michelle were visiting Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen of England on May 24th, 2011. The image shows the President looking impressed or wowed after seeing something. It is particularly used as a rage comic reaction face alongside the phrase “Not Bad” due to the sturgeon facial expression of the President, to convey feelings of being impressed or proud at something for exceeding their expectation. The picture was published on The Telegraph titled as “Picture of the Day” on May 26th. However, the rage comic was posted the same day on one of reddit’s subreddits by user joeyjoejoe99. Soon afterwards, numerous variants were spotted as different threads and comic strips. And while the phrase started being associated generally to all sturgeon faced pictures, the Obama reaction image was mentioned across popular meme sites including Memebase,, etc. The “Not Bad” Obama Face meme is also (sometimes erroneously) referred to as: obama not bad meme, obama sturgeon face meme, obama impressed face meme, obama rage comic.
