Team USA’s Olympic uniform is cause for talk after folks on the Internet noticed something familiar about the gloves. It appears the gloves look strikingly similar to the gloves worn by Jim Carrey’s character Lloyd Christmas in “Dumb and Dumber.” Tons of people have turned the gloves into a meme after the 2018 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony.
The uniforms were designed by Polo Ralph Lauren and feature modern details and updated fabric. They even include battery-powered heaters. Seems the Internet was most impressed with the resemblance the gloves had those worn by Lloyd Christmas. Some of the Twitterverse hilarity is below.
