Gary from Chicago is the person this country needs to carry us forward into every unknown situation we will face for the next 30 years.
Gary, fresh off a Hollywood tour bus and armed with a bag full of approximately 300 or so things and his purple-clad smart phone, walked into the 2017 Oscars like it was his mom’s house and never looked back.
Gary was a part of Jimmy Kimmel‘s skit which involved a group of tourists being dropped off in the middle of the Oscars and walked through the theatre. From what I can tell, it was totally unstaged.
Gary was in town with his fiancée, but given the opportunity to photograph every A-list celebrity on the planet, Gary left her in the dust several times.
Gary seemed to be the only tourist not starstruck by the occasion. Or maybe he was so starstruck his social anxiety took over and he just held his phone up and took around 900 pictures.
Gary kissed the hands of Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. When Kimmel told Gary not to look into Ryan Gosling’s eyes, he stared straight at him and took a photo of him about 12 inches from his face. From there he took a wedding gift from Jennifer Aniston and acted so cool around Denzel Washington it was like he was at his house the night before.
At times, Gary was so in the zone that Kimmel couldn’t even contain him. After Kimmel introduced him to new Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, Gary just asked him to take his photo– not to take a photo with him.
There was no one in the room cooler than Gary from Chicago at the Oscars.
