The 63-year-old actor raised the stakes on Sunday when he recreated his iconic “30 岩” scene-turned-meme while distributing candy in Brooklyn, ニューヨーク.
で 2012 episode of the comedy series entitled “The Tuxedo Begins,” Buscemi’s character — private investigator Lenny Wosniak — recalls going undercover disguised as a high school student.
As he walks past a group of teenagers
, he greets them with the toe-curling line
: “How do you do, fellow kids?
The scene spawned a meme that is often used to poke fun at people failing miserably to relate to a younger generation.
In pictures circulating online, Buscemi was seen sporting the same red baseball cap, a red hoodie, and a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Music Band.” He completed the look with a skateboard.
Both he and Elvis Costello were happy to pose for photos with fans while giving candy to trick-or-treaters.
It’s safe to say Buscemi’s costume idea was a hit with lovers of the show, with many taking to social media to praise his creativity.
Actress and screenwriter Mindy Kaling shared the original GIF on Twitter
, along with the caption
: “I can’t believe Steve Buscemi dressed as his own meme on Halloween.
Sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann tweeted: “No more calls. No more tricks. No more treats. We have the international, unanimous Halloween 2021 winner and it’s Steve Buscemi as…Steve Buscemi.”
And author Amina Akhtar tweeted: “Steve Buscemi wins celeb Halloween.”
