Is He Cool? Yeah, He’s Cool- Michael Rooker and the Mary Poppins Meme!
Yondu became an overnight sensation after the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which gifted audiences with amazing new characters, a rocking soundtrack, and most importantly, one of the most popular Marvel memes that is practically perfect in every way.
While the second Guardians film had plenty of hilarious moments and scene-stealing lines, none captured the hearts of fans so much as Yondu’s epic, “I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!” as he floated gracefully down from a battle, clutching his yaka arrow. Since the film, the meme has taken off, no one embracing it moreso than Yondu himself, Michael Rooker.
Yondu and Mary Poppins are now the two coolest characters in the galaxy. Michael Rooker has even made sure to appropriately accessorize himself- we heard his badge from SDCC even said “Mary Poppins” on it! Yondu blue even became one of the most popular colors for cosplayers this summer. At other conventions like D23 Expo, just before Comic-Con, dedicated costumers were already making mash-ups and declaring, “I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!” with pride.

Michael Rooker has been the meme’s biggest advocate, and certainly embodies the cool spirit of Mary Poppins and the savage ravager that is Yondu. And in the end, aren’t we all Mary Poppins, y’all?
