Merely hours after Kimberly Guilfoyle’s speech Monday night at the Republican National Convention, the internet created the now-viral #GuilfoyleChallenge. People are creating memes on one particular line in Guilfoyle’s speech — her thunderous, “Ladies and gentlemen, leaders and fighters of the American dream, the best is yet to come!”
The original line can be seen below.

However, the moment has taken a life on its own as people began recreating the speech, channeling all of their anger and passion into their impersonation. One user has gained over two million views on his video of him screaming the speech into the streets.
#GuilfoyleChallenge Goes Viral
The challenge videos didn’t stop at real-life recreations. Users also took it upon themselves to edit Guilfoyle’s speech into iconic scenes from TV shows and movies. Following multiple critics comparing RNC speeches to SNL skits, people edited Guilfoyle’s speech to a mashup with The Office‘s Dwight Schrute.

Taking advantage of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s recent hit, “WAP,” @sainthoax created a parody of multiple RNC speeches. By the time Guilfoyle’s line came around, the two rappers are running away at the thought that the “best was yet to come.”
In another video (the next slide in the post above, or view it below), they edited Guilfoyle’s face directly into an iconic Ursula scene from The Little Mermaid.
As the Halloween season quickly approaches, some users got a little spooky with their takes on the #GuilfoyleChallenge.
While people have gotten creative with their takes, many can be summed up with this clip of a wild marmot screaming on a mountain.
