*Puts hands on cheeks.* Mind. Blown.
Macaulay Culkin just served us a slice of AWESOME -- he appears in a new photo that is pure pop culture inspiration -- the "Home Alone" alum sports a T-shirt showing heartthrob and fellow former child star Ryan Gosling, 33, wearing sunglasses and a tee featuring an image from LIFE magazine of the former actor when he was younger, pretending to choke himself. In the picture, Culkin, also 33, also sports similar shades, plus shoulder-length hair and a goatee, and is holding a coffee mug.
The photo was posted on the website of Culkin's comedy rock band, The Pizza Underground, on Sunday.
"Let's get meta #ryangosling #macaulayculkin #shirt #pizzaunderground #mug," the tweet said.
In 2012, a graphic suggesting that Culkin looked like a combination of Gosling and Steve Buscemi became a popular meme.
Where did the Ryan Gosling photo come from? The picture IS real -- it was snapped by a photographer from the paparazzi agency FameFlynet in March 2013. Gosling wore the T-shirt while filling his car with gas in Studio City, near Los Angeles.
Your move, Ryan.
