‘Arrived at Met Gala’ is the latest hilarious meme that gamers have run wild with
You don’t need an eye for fashion to appreciate how amusing all of the memes surrounding The Met Gala are, yet no crowd has had fun with it like gamers. From simple, snarky quips about how many of the Gala’s guests look like a certain Kingdom Hearts protagonist to full-blown edits of Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, and Animal Crossing characters appearing on the red carpet — folks are having fun with this meme.
It wasn’t long before all of this went viral, and soon hundreds of Photoshop savants began, well, adding their favorite characters to the event! From obvious choices like Aerith Gainsborough from Final Fantasy VII to more obscure name-drops like Yakuza’s Kazuma Kiryu.
