Macaulay Culkin should grace more t-shirts. It would appear that Ryan Gosling agrees as he sported a t-shirt featuring the child star and current member of alt-folk band Pizza Underground. Now Culkin has fired back with his own genius take on Gosling’s shirt.
Earlier this week, the Pizza Underground Twitter account shared a picture of Culkin wearing a shirt depicting Gosling wearing a shirt depicting Culkin. It was possibly the most meta moment of the week and it did not go unnoticed on the Internet. The band was even in on the joke by prefacing the picture with “Let’s get Meta” followed by all the prerequisite hashtags.
Following the picture, the Internet fell in love. The original post on Reddit garnered over 3,500 upvotes and almost 2,000 comments. The Photoshop warriors also rose to the occasion and tried to make it as meta as possible.
