Michael Peña may be an extremely talented actor from Chicago who has played various roles expanding from misunderstood hispanic locksmith in Crash, to the owner of a baseball team in Mexico in Eastbound and Down, to a 1940s gangster cop in the new movie Gangster Squad (coming out Friday, January 11). But he might as well not know what a computer is because he has no idea what a meme is. Pft.
So we took the time to school him on what a meme is, at least what the Ryan Gosling "Hey Girl" meme is, and he returned the favor by rating recent pop culture events as gangster or… not.
