Lost in a crowd is a panfandom tumblr meme that started in August 2015. It is a text-based meme in four parts: character A can't find character B in a crowd and says "This calls for drastic measures," character A shouts something that character B is guaranteed to find offensive, character B leaps out of the crowd and shouts something angry in reply, character A says either "There they are" or "Found them." Often the thing guaranteed to anger character B is an insult to character A.

memedocumentation identified the origin of the meme as a Steve/Bucky post on August 10 by jibblyuniverse.[1] As of October 2015, the post has over 46,000 notes.[2]
