The so-called “McKayla Maroney is not impressed” photo has become a meme, after it was photoshopped and quickly spread across the Internet. She was later spotted teaching Jenna Bush how to “do the Dougie“, as shown in the video below.

As noted at Los Angeles Times on Thursday, August 9, 2012, US gymnast McKayla Maroney was a favorite to win the gold medal in the London 2012 Olympic Vault last Sunday, but ended up winning the silver medal only, with a score of 15.083. She was then photographed standing on the podium, looking unimpressed.
“It wasn’t the silver that I was disappointed about. I was just disappointed in what happened and how I performed. I really wanted to be able to hit both my vaults but I ended up falling on my second one,” Maroney, 16, was quoted telling to “Today’s” Savannah Guthrie on Thursday morning.
Apparently, the “McKayla Maroney is not impressed” facial reaction inspired 28-year-old Gavin Alaoen of New York to make a Tumblr photoshopped images last Tuesday and immediately went viral, attracting 1,200 followers after only a few hours it was created; with other memes soon followed.
Alaoen made three photoshopped images for the “McKayla Maroney is not impressed” photo including; Usain Bolt posing with the mascot of the London Olympics, the US men’s basketball team hamming it up on the sideline, and Alex Morgan scoring the winning goal for the US women’s soccer team.

On another occasion, McKayla Maroney was seen with Jenna Bush, daughter of former US President George W. Bush, and other members of the US women’s gymnastics team including the now famous Gabby Douglas. All of them were riding a double-decker bus touring London.
McKayla Maroney started to dance to the tune of “Teach Me How To Dougie” while Gabby Douglas gave it a try, as the others look on. Jenna Bush was quite hesitant to join and could hardly stand up on the running bus. When the bus stopped, McKayla tried to teach Jenna the dance steps but the latter had a hard time to follow.
