The Andrew Tate v Greta Thunberg controversy has taken the internet by storm, which guarantees one thing; top-tier memes.

One such meme that has gone outrageously viral in the last 48 hours is a video of cars flying from a building, which has been described as Andrew Tate’s cars 'killing themselves' after an unfortunate week for the controversial media personality.

But did you know that the meme actually came from a famous movie scene? Take a look:

In case you need a little recap; Andrew Tate's cars became unwilling targets of the internet after the former kickboxer tried to take on environmental activist Greta Thunberg.

Earlier this week he tweeted the activist: “Hello Greta Thunberg. I have 33 cars. My Bugatti has a w16 8.0L quad turbo. My TWO Ferrari 812 competizione have 6.5L v12s.

"This is just the start. Please provide your email address so I can send a complete list of my car collection and their respective enormous emissions."

In an unsurprising turn of events, Tate got owned by the 19-year-old when she replied with: "Yes, please do enlighten me. Email me at smalld**[email protected]."

The internet went wild, as you can imagine.

When Tate tried to hit back at the teenager with a two-minute video of himself lashing out at Greta, dressed in a robe, smoking a cigar, with a pizza box in front of him, things got considerably worse for the internet celebrity.

Not long after the video was posted, Tate's home was raided by Romanian authorities and he was arrested as part of an ongoing human trafficking investigation.

Tate has been under investigation since April of this year for human trafficking allegations.

Romanian news outlet Gandul claims 'authorities waited for the right moment to catch the Tate brothers, who were always out of the country'.

"After seeing, including on social networks, that they were together in Romania, the DIICOT prosecutors mobilized the special troops of the Gendarmerie and descended, by force, on their villa in Pipera, but also on other addresses," the news outlet claimed.

Rumours swirled online that it was Tate's own callout video that got him caught, thanks to the pizza box that was clearly from Jerry's Pizza in Romania - though this hasn't been confirmed yet.

One of the most popular memes to come out of this whole debacle was a tweet from one user who shared a behind-the-scenes video from the filming of Fate of the Furious (2017), accompanied by the caption: "Andrew Tate's cars killing themselves after Greta got him arrested."

The outrageous stunt, known as the 'Raining Cars' scene, was performed for the sixth film in the Fast & Furious franchise.

The scene centres around cyberterrorist Cipher (Charlize Theron) hacking into all the self-driving cars in New York City and remotely driving them towards the motorcade of the Russian Minister of Defence.

Rather than shooting the flashy action scene with CGI, the production crew used real cars and actually sent them flying off various floors of a parking garage - which must have been done at an incredibly high cost.

I'm sure the team are glad to see that the jaw-dropping scene lives on - even if it is in meme form.
