“That’s On Me, I Set The Bar Too Low” memes come from a special cross-over episode of New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, according to Know Your Meme. In the episode, there is an exchange between Zooey Deschanel’s Jess Day and Andy Samberg’s Detective Jake Peralta. Jess challenges Jake’s validity as a cop.

Jake: “I’m not a thug, I’m police.”Jess: “Okay, then name one law.”Jake: “Don’t kill people?”Jess: “That’s on me, I set the bar too low.”

The meme format has been around for a few years, but recently took off in May 2021 after a version about Spider-Man director Sam Raimi went viral on Reddit.

Many are sharing their own versions on social media.
