Eastwooding: Empty-Chair Meme Explodes After Actor's RNC Speech

by at . Comments

The biggest story to come out of Thursday's conclusion of the Republican National Convention was not Mitt Romney's acceptance specch, but #Eastwooding.

Eastwooding being the Twitter hashtag for parodies, jokes and memes at the expense of acting legend Clint Eastwood's unusual, yet highly entertaining speech.

The 82-year-old debated an invisible Obama in an empty chair in what had to be the strangest endorsement of Romney all week, and the Internet went nuts.

Here's the original photo - angled so Invisible Obama still uses a teleprompter (subtly hilarious) - along with some of our favorite celebrity-based parodies:


Clint expressing utter disgust with Keanu Reeves' first term:

Clint debating Paris Hilton (basically an empty void of air):

Clint Eastwood, Paris Hilton

President Obama actually showing up for the debate:

Clint Eastwood, Barack Obama

Clint debating the Princess Leia hologram from Star Wars:

McKayla Maroney is not impressed by the stunt (or most other things):

And finally, a confounding and disbelieving text from Hillary Clinton ...

You know @matt that he is strait you his old lady or the skank he cheat on his wifey with .You defendin him he not man enuf to do it himself.?


Mitt spoke for 40 minutes. It's a speech not a damn mini series. What kind of specifics has Obama given in 4 years? Mitt gave you a 5 point plan and it ALL has to do with JOBS.


Wow! Matt's busy this morning! And on a Sunday to boot! Matt gay? Oh, please! If you trolls have a beef about getting your stuff erased? Then go to the management. They are the only ones who have that power and authority. Btw, you---"on the other side of the road"....bite off, you're no angel. You like the fight and bickering be honest. I'll echo the previously stated question: "this is good-bye"? (God, we could BE so lucky?!?)


Barack will definitely be back in office after this horrendous failure. Clints speech is the epitome of the repub party: old rich white people that only they can see an invisble problem with Obama! Clint is demented obviously and guess what GOPers...THAT'S NOT COVERED IN MITTS HEALTHCARE PLAN LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL "His policies failed...he didn't do this he didn't do that" well did Mitt say ANY SPECIFICS on what he'd do?? The whole 3 nights was nothing but Obama scapegoating when we all know who got us here ----->Bush. And the obstruction of the GOP senate KEPT US HERE. Remember it was a group of REPUBLICANS ((ncluding Paul Lyan) that said their MAIN GOAL was to assure that PBO is a 1-termer...not jobs, economy, healthcare, foreign policy but making sure that BLACK MAN isn't our president. The republican party today is superfluous out of touch and only out to help a select group. HONEY BOO BOO HAD MORE VIEWERS THAN THE RNC.......END OF STORY!


Life partner- neither am I. Lots of gays on here? Your kiddin. Still- 428-361= .... I'll keep all that in mind.


Im not in the market for a life partner matt you will have to try on thg for one i have two grown kids .I like women even though you keep trying to make me a black woman. you could try tyrone on thg if he isnt on entitlement programs he would be perfect for you matt PEACE OUT.


Yes- I expect you will be watching & so will I! Make sure you are visible, I would hate to step on your toes! So- I'm guessing this is goodbye?


I've told you before , I'm not HH- goodbye Chely- Belly.


You can hate me all you want, Chely peaches- as I said- I really have no interest in trying to eliminate what you say! Matter of fact I like it when you talk, because you make me look that much smarter! I think it's best we stay out of each others way and yes- I know when it's you. You take things to damn personal- get your tender feelings hurt and start trying to bring others in with your accusations. We are not good for each other- you stay on your side of the street. As will I.


If you think matt works for thg or in anyway erases your words or blocks your ip, or that he is HH,, then you have completly lost your mind. there are political threads you deranged individual and they are there to be commented on. there is an election coming up and people are not satisfied and you will not dictate who says what. you & matt, you point the finger at the one you hate and you think that because you hate him that he is responsible for you dissatisfaction? you are indeed out of your mind.
