On Oscar night, Ellen DeGeneres's selfie tweet which featured the likes of Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o and Kevin Spacey got 1 million RTs in an hour. The tweet broke the record for the most RTs in Twitter history.
Not sure who did this, just found here on twitter, but it's epic..pic.twitter.com/jc04Wid9fI
With F1 driver's faces replacing those of the Hollywood celebs, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel, Felipe Massa, Nico Rosberg, Romain Grosjean and Alonso himself were all photo shopped on the well-made meme. Lewis Hamilton's dog Roscoe also made it to the meme and why wouldn't he, when the pooch has official permission to be present in the paddock for every F1 race.
This tweet didn't break any records but it did earn many favourites and re-tweets.
The F1 ace found the person who made the meme and thanked him with this tweet,
