MENUMENU

Armie Hammer holding a hot dog cannon is an instant Oscar meme

We swear this isn’t a euphemism.

The 90th Academy Awards took a break from handing out awards midway through the show on Sunday as Jimmy Kimmel, Gal Gadot, Mark Hamill, and Guillermo del Toro led a group of actors and directors into a different movie theater—where they surprised an audience who thought they were seeing a sneak peak of A Wrinkle In Time.

The audience got much more than they hoped for as the celebrities began passing out snacks in the theater. Call Me By Your Name actor Armie Hammer stole the show, however, with his giant hot dog cannon (no sexual innuendo intended).

Twitter was incredibly entertained, and Hammer transformed from actor-in-a-Academy-Award-nominated-film into a full-fledged meme.

If I were baked out of my mind watching A Wrinkle in Time and Armie Hammer came in and shot a hot dog at me I'd think I had died

“How was the movie?”
“Armie Hammer shot me with a hot dog”

Hammer later celebrated with the cast of Call Me By Your Name after James Ivory won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay

The hot dog cannon meme was one of the top meme-able moments of the 2018 Oscars. Meryl Streep also updated her “shouting meme,” and The Shape of Water set decorator Shane Vieau was roasted for his short jacket sleeves
