Ladies and gents, I present the newest meme of 2017; America’s newest sweetheart — ‘Gary from Chicago.’
Of course if you were watching last night’s Oscars and followed Twitter Monday you’re well aware of Gary Cole already. The Chicago native and his fiancée were part of a tour bus group that unknowingly walked into the Academy Awards with the help of host Jimmy Kimmel. It was one of the most clever, hilarious and memorable stunts in recent memory. And Gary was at the center of it all. He even got ‘married’ by Denzel Washington.

And to top it off, several Chicago entities started reaching out to Gary, including the Chicago Bulls and Gino’s East pizza.
It looks like they also have free bridal services to take advantage of.
It was also announced that Gary will also be on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night.
JK really is the best. It’s settled. There should never be any other Oscars host while he’s still breathing.
