The whole “asking a famous person to the prom” thing is so 2010, because now all the cool kids are Photoshopping celebrities into their Enchantment Under the Sea photos. (They’re also making references to a movie that came out in 1985.)
Take Gabi Dunn, for instance. According to the Canadian teenager, “My boyfriend and I broke up a few days after prom, so I decided to ‘edit’ the photos a little @VancityReynolds.” Reynolds is practically royalty in the Great White North — National Lampoon’s Van Wilder is their Mr. Smith Goes to Washington — so good on Dunn for making Deadpool her arm-candy.
And equally good on Reynolds for responding to Dunn on Twitter. “We should photoshop me over his yearbook picture next,” he tweeted, while adding the hashtag, #DontMessWithGabi. Nearly 300,000 people (and counting) agree.
Obviously we don’t know what happened between Dunn and her prom date — notice how she wrote “my boyfriend and I broke up,” instead of “my boyfriend broke up with me,” so maybe it was a mutual split? — but her former-fling has probably moved on. He’s already tweeting at Reynolds’ (future ex-?) wife, Blake Lively. “I got some gossip for you, girl: let’s not grow old together.”
Meanwhile, Reynolds and Dunn are working on adopting Ricky Baker.
