Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the newly minted White House Press Secretary, is learning a valuable lesson on the job: If you wear solid green on television, viewers may be tempted to use it as a green screen so they can superimpose hilarious images onto you. It's a lesson that anyone who has spent a considerable time on screen has learned — and more often than not, it's a lesson that is typically learned the hard way. We know it was for Sarah. Just see for yourself. As you can probably imagine, people had a field day with the situation, and really got into it.
Like this hero, Buzzfeed's Jesse McLaren, who truly knows a thing or two when it comes to making a viral image (and, in general, pics that people, like, really, really like):
While it was probably a bad day for Sarah Huckabee Sanders (and, if we had to guess, an even worse day for whomever she pays to dress her — someone we can only imagine has since been fired...), you will probably not be surprised to learn that it was a great day for Twitter, with the people of social media feeling incredibly grateful for both Sarah's mishap, and Jesse's creation.

People, like Katheryn, didn't just sit back and let the fun unfold. She took action and even made a request: "So if I wear green tonight at the rally, can you make cool movies on my shirt? Cuz you know I will."
This guy used Sanders's dress in a practical way.
I was watching Goodfellas on her dress just this morning. I can never resist that movie.— jltdawg (@jltdawg) July 28, 2017
One user had a suggestion for what McLaren should include in his next clip.
Needs to have a clip from the sinking of the Titanic in here— The Resistence (@tpabob46) July 28, 2017
Hopefully Sanders wears another green ensemble soon so we can get a sequel to this epic clip. Because, well...
