The Weeknd's Super Bowl Halftime Show Viral Clip Watched 25 Million Times

Tom Brady may have won his seventh Super Bowl, but it was a moment from The Weeknd's halftime show that became the meme of the night.

The Grammy-winning Canadian singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, delivered a memorable show that featured fireworks and backup dancers with bandaged faces. He performed a medley of some of his most popular songs, from "The Hills" to "Blinding Lights."

But it was a brief moment involving some close camera work by the singer before he launched into his 2015 hit "Can't Feel My Face" that went viral, with one three-second clip posted on Twitter amassing more than 25 million views by early Monday morning.

It shows the singer appear confused and lost in a brightly lit mirrored hallway, apparently searching for an exit—and prompted a flood of jokes on Twitter, with people relating it to real-life circumstances.

Another person joked: "Me trying to find the bathroom at the club after 6 or 7."
