Last night at the Oscars, host Jimmy Kimmel had a number of sketches up his sleeve. One of the most noteworthy was bringing a bus full of tourists into the ceremony, much to their shock and amazement. While the bus had 10+ visitors, only one stole the show: Gary from Chicago.
Fittingly, Gary wore a Hollywood sweater, which should have been our first sign that he was destined for stardom. Gary clutched his purple cell phone tightly, making sure to film the entire experience. Gary was joined by his fiancee, who got a hug from Denzel Washington and a kiss from Ryan Gosling.
Gary schmoozed with his favourite celebrities at the event, from Denzel to Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali. When Kimmel noted that it seemed as though Gary was ignoring the white celebrities, Gary replied defiantly, "I am."
Love him or hate him, there's no denying that although he didn't take home a trophy, Gary from Chicago was the real winner last night. Here are some of Twitter's best reactions to our newest internet sensation.
