What made Wilder such a popular figure in internet culture? Likely his unparalleled delivery of physical comedy and ability to communicate such a full range of emotions with as little as a slight cocking of the eye. He’s become the surrogate face of many an internet user—his expressions giving wordless voice to disbelief, bemusement, or panic beyond the descriptive powers of language.
What a talented face. It will be missed, and likely never forgotten.
