Chris Evans was all smiles when he finally met one of the creators of the hilarious nails meme made popular on Black Twitter.
The Avengers: Endgame star crossed paths with Nicole, also known as @alamanecer on Twitter at ACE Comic Con in Seattle over the weekend. The Twitter user and created one of the hilarious nails memes that have taken over social media.
The images appeared in the Black Twitter universe thanks to @WrittenByHanna, who wrote, “I listened to an interview recently where Chris Evans said he didn’t know what Black Twitter was which is deeply unfortunate because now he can’t see the beauty that is all these memes of him,” along with several hilarious pics of Evans in bonnets, braids and gold hoops.
The interview referenced was his chat with the Thirst Aid Kit back in January.

After Evan’s coffin-styled nails appeared Evan’s Captian America character, inspiring many to add nails to other characters like Chadwick Boseman, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr.
After weeks-long of these memes getting more and more creative, Evans finally noticed himself at the center of the photoshopped pictures and couldn’t have been a better sport about it.
“This gave me a genuine belly laugh,” the 38-year-old actor tweeted in response to the meme in early June. This past weekend, the actor addressed the meme once more and met the clever creator of the meme in person.

At the ACE Comic Con in Seattle, Evans posed for a picture with Nicole, who headed back to her hotel to drop some photoshop magic on the picture. She even got Evans to pose for the photo so the nails can fit just right.
Comic Book noted Evan’s reaction to the joke at the event. “I was surprised how many postures I would strike that work so seamlessly,” he said after sharing how he was shown the memes by his brother.
“You don’t think you’re making a move that would work for it but then all of a sudden you’re like [gestures] and it works. It’s kind of hilarious. Yeah, those are so funny. They crack me up. My younger brother was the first one to turn me onto it. He sent me a bunch of pictures and I thought they were just so funny. They really cracked me up.”
This without a doubt makes him the best Avenger.

The meme also inspired Nicole to create the #CaptainAcrylica fundraiser with the Stonewall Foundation for black and Latinx members of the transgender community.
