As you may know, actor/director Clint Eastwood spoke at the Republican National Convention, and spoke to President Obama in front of a cheerful crowd. Obama, in Eastwood's speech, took on the form of an empty chair next to the podium. For full context, here's video from the convention:

It's been all over the Internet today. There's already an "Invisible Obama" Twitter account, a "Clint Eastwood Talking To A Chair" song, and even a comeback from Obama himself.

Now, "Eastwooding," like planking, Tebowing, and owling before it, is a meme, and photos are surfacing all over social media. Google+, being the photo-heavy social network that it is, seems like a good place to start, though you'd probably have just as much luck on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.

Here's some of the latest entries to the Eastwooding craze from Google+:
