Once in a lifetime, a crusade comes along so all-consuming and important it appears on the horizon as but a dot, only to quickly move to the forefront of all that is necessary and righteous. A plight so imperative, one cannot do anything but stand up in solidarity to make sure justice is done: the call to bring the Creepy Lucy statue home to its rightful resting place, the @midnight studios.
Creepy Lucy has taken the Internet by storm thanks to her…shall we say…interesting facial aggression (a.k.a. the stuff of nightmares). But as is our want when it comes to things that are a little bit off, we’ve fallen in love with Creepy Lucy and feel as though she should belong to the Internet world that truly loves her. And what better place for that to happen than Chris Hardwick’s @midnight studio space?
Nowhere, that’s where! Because — for those not in the know/somehow managed to miss last night’s episode of @midnight (we’ll excuse this egregious oversight… for now) — the studio where @midnight tapes is actually the very same space that Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz filmed her iconic series, I Love Lucy.
Because really, could there be a more perfect convergence of things than the memerific iteration of Lucille Ball ending up in the studio that she once worked in, now home to all things Internet on Comedy Central? I don’t think so.
Intrepid fan Dawn D’Orazio made a two hour trek to the park in which Creepy Lucy stands to get the #BringLucyHome campaign started. And outside of giving her perma-points from here until the end of eternity, we’d also like to commend her for doing the good work, fighting the good fight for the sake of the Internet.
So C’MON nerds! Let’s all tweet in solidarity to #BringLucyHome! It’s the right thing to do, because America and Internet.
