Boy From Viral Meme Has Grown Up and Now Has New Deal With Popeyes

You may have seen Dieunerst Collin's face before, but you likely never knew his name. His famous side-eye has been shared online millions of times in different memes.

It all began when he was just 9 years old and waiting in line at the popular fast food chain Popeyes. His side-eye gained popularity and was made into a meme shared several times over the last 10 years.

Now, a decade later, Collin has grown up and plays college football at Erie College in Painsville, Ohio.

According to Foodbeast, because Collins is allowed to earn sponsorship money through a name, image, and likeness deal, also known as a NIL, Popeye has signed him to a sponsorship that will include his name, image, and likeness on billboards and in advertisements.
