Macaulay Culkin Just Won the Meta Arms Race

Because apparently, wearing a t-shirt of a t-shirt just wasn’t meta enough. Well played, Mr. Culkin. Well played.

When word got out about his pizza-themed, Velvet Underground cover band (appropriately named "The Pizza Underground”), it seemed like Macaulay Culkin had cracked the unbreakable code of the internet. And a new development, freshly unearthed on Twitter, seems to confirm the theory.

A recent tweet depicts Culkin the Elder wearing a t-shirt of Ryan Gosling… wearing a t-shirt of Macaulay Culkin. The shirt is supposedly a piece of Pizza Underground merch, but we're inclined to believe that it’s a deliberate step in Culkin’s latest campaign of pop-culture domination. And that, good sirs, may be the most meta thing of all.

We'll be monitoring the internets closely for the inevitably forthcoming t-shirt of Culkin wearing a t-shirt of Gosling wearing a t-shirt of Culkin.
