The headline kinda says it all. Hannibal Buress was at E3 in Los Angeles last week and apparently went by the Nintendo booth. While he was there a Getty photographer took a photo of Hannibal hanging out with this statue of Gooigi, the gooey new version of Luigi that’ll be introduced in Luigi’s Mansion 3. I posted the photo to Twitter earlier today and people can not get enough of it. So many retweets and likes and whatever else. I get why—it’s a beautiful testament to a friendship that defies the borders between the real and the unreal, the everyday and the forbidden. Hannibal Buress is not the only celebrity whose photo was taken with Gooigi last week, but he’s the only one who really seems to get Luigi’s ectoplasmic doppelganger. These dudes need to do a buddy comedy together.
If you haven’t seen Hannibal hanging out with Gooigi yet, here’s your chance. I hope it’s everything you wanted it to be.
