Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek, best known for lip-syncing to Queen songs, has inadvertently become a meme.

This is thanks to a rather creepy and unnerving advert that Malek has made for Mandarin Oriental hotels where he lists the various things that he is a 'fan' of.

Wearing a purple suit that makes him look like The Joker, the 37-year-old star names Queen, his mum, camomile tea, hand-written letters, classic movies, travelling by train, random encounters and mischief as things he is a fan of.

Yet Malek's stunted and odd delivery throughout the entire clip makes an unusual video even more uncomfortable, and the clip was soon being ridiculed and mocked with jokes and memes.

Here are some of our favourites:

Perhaps he was auditioning for another role?

Some thought it was a dating video.

Others felt that it was for something a lot more sinister.

It was a little less worrying when sound-tracked to music.

Malek isn't the only celebrity to have made a found like this for Mandarian Oriental but everyone else manages to come across as normal compared to the Bohemian Rhapsody star.

Here are a few more for example.

Stanley Tucci.

Christoph Waltz.

Chen Man.

Dev Patel.

Isabelle Huppert.
