For years, an iconic screenshot of James Van Der Beek crying on a dock in "Dawson's Creek" has been used as a reaction picture on the Internet. Car break down? Dawson crying. Can't find your homework? Dawson crying.
It reached a level of popularity so inescapable that the actor actually paired with Funny Or Die to create James Van Der Memes -- a site dedicated to trying to get people to use the actor's face for something other than tears.
But the cry-face is still a reaction shot staple, and some Internet citizen recently had the idea to take the meme a step further. Thus, 1990s Problems was born.
What better star for an image macro about the struggles of a 1990s youth than the crying face of someone from the quintessential 90s teen show?
