Real Life Inception: Ryan Gosling 'wears' latest Macauley Culkin t-shirt


It's the greatest battle the internet has ever known.

Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration.

It all started with a plain white t-shirt and iconic Life Magazine cover.

The Notebook hunk was spotted wear a t-shirt featuring Macauley Culkin wearing a Ryan Gosling t-shirt, when Ryan Gosling originally wore a Macauley Culkin t-shirt.

Get it? Good.

Some crafty online users with questionable Photoshop skills have taken this competition to the next, more epic level.
