When the Internet gets its hands on a meaty rumor like Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert’s personal plane flying en route to South Beach, what else would you expect? Primetime rumor season is pretty much primetime meme season, as we were once again reminded of on Sunday.

The real question, of course, is what song would Gilbert play to seduce LeBron back into the loving arms of Cleveland? Here’s to guessing it would involve lots of saxophones. But surely Gilbert wouldn’t limit himself to just a song, right? Why not fork up for a plane to awkwardly write “Sorry” in the sky, you’re surely wondering?
As for the plane’s passengers, apparently this is what people think owning a plane is like:

Then there’s the obligatory reference to “Airplane,” a film released 34 years ago that’s still completely hilarious.

And what set of memes would be worthwhile without at least one reference to 1990s culture?
