Ellen DeGeneres’ famous Twitter-breaking Oscars selfie has had a makeover. LEGO has cleverly re-created the photo with its signature figures. The LEGO Group tweeted the photo along with the message: “The real #Oscars #selfie…sort of #Oscars2014 @ellenDegeneres_.” All that’s missing from the LEGO Oscars selfie is the Oscar statue for the winners to hold – maybe they’ll work on that next year!
This follows on the heels of “The Simpsons” recreation of the famous photo, which the internet went crazy for.
The Simpsons’ view allowed Jared Leto to be visible as opposed to having his face cut as in the original. Homer Simpson also got in on the fun in the Simpsons version of the famous Ellen Degeneres selfie, which Bradley Cooper was clearly not happy about. Plus, Homer Simpson claimed “The ugly true story of that Oscar selfie can finally be told! Let’s break Twitter again.” He hinted at a secret addition to the photograph: “Look for Bart.”
Very clever all around.
