You could have watched any of a handful of Marvel movies -- setting the comics aside -- to have seen Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and known she’s green. Yet, she’s somehow not as associated with being green as, say, Kermit the Frog or the Hulk. However, a new meme has changed that dynamic in a big way.

What is the Gamora Lipstick meme?
The Guardians of the Galaxy star was featured in a video that began circulating on social media last week. It shows Saldana applying green lipstick to complete the very-green makeup she wears as daughter of the Mad Titan.
The video instantly took on an odd and unexpected life as a meme. It’s not quite as universal as that passive-aggressive Daenerys meme. In fact, it’s quite specific. People have used it almost exclusively as a meme for something green that's getting ready to do something. Whether that’s money leaving the bank, lettuce giving you food poisoning, or “pickles right before getting removed from a hamburger.”
Where did the Gamora Lipstick meme start?
The video was originally shared by Saldana on Instagram back in April, just after the release of Avengers: Endgame, which has gone on to smash box office records like... like... like, uh, Hulk smashing something?
