High School Seniors Transformed Into Pop Culture Icons For Their Student IDs

"Senior year is gonna be finger lickin' good."

ID photos are notoriously terrible. Everyone knows it's hard to force a genuine smile after waiting in that long line, after all. But, for seniors at a high school in Michigan, Picture Day has taken on new meaning, as the students dress like pop culture icons and memes — and their spot-on recreations have quickly gone viral.

In recent years, students at North Farmington High School have established a new tradition. To make their school IDs more fun, seniors have begun dressing up as popular characters and famous celebrities. Participants then post a side-by-side comparison of their ID photo and the image that inspired their costume to Twitter using the school year's corresponding hashtag. (This year, for instance, you can view said posts under #NFID19.)

"The idea behind it is that the way our yearbook works is that everyone submits their own senior portraits," Erin Sawyer told POPSUGAR. "Therefore, the ID pictures are only on the IDs. The first class of seniors [that did it] took this as an opportunity to have some fun with their pictures! Now, I think some people wish the ID photos could be their yearbook photos!"

While North Farmington's Class of 2018's ID photos went viral last fall, the Class of 2019 has certainly taken this challenge to the next level. Here are just some of the highlights:
