Dawson’s Creek was the teen drama to watch in the ’90s and early aughts. But even younger audiences who grew up on its successors like The O.C., Gossip Girl or The Vampire Diaries probably recognize star James Van Der Beek from Tumblr.

A shot of his character tearfully letting childhood love Joey (Katie Holmes) move on with his best friend Pacey (Joshua Jackson) in season 3 is now a viral meme — and he’s all for the Internet’s obsession.
