God damn we love our job sometimes.

So there’s this thing happening on the 26 of Feb. Possibly the most Melbourne thing we've heard all month; there’s no real way to describe it so we’re just going to come straight out: thousands of people are heading to Fed Square to gather and say ‘Wow!’ like Owen Wilson. That’s it. That’s exactly what’s happening.

See it turns out that Owen Wilson (of Zoolander & Wedding Crashers fame) says ‘Wow!’ in his movies...a lot. And there’s a group of people that want to celebrate that fact. If you’d like to brush up, here’s a short compilation of the many times Owen Wilson has said ‘Wow!’

Now the big question: how exactly do you ‘Wow!’ like Owen Wilson? It has to be said: this guy nails his wows. You’re gonna have to capture that sort of child-like falsetto. And there’s a slight elongation on the second W. Sometimes he kind of whispers his ‘wow’, as if he really is overcome by the sheer ‘wowness’ of the occasion. You can’t teach that kind of acting...

Anyway, this thing exists. According to the Facebook event page, over 2000 people will be saying ‘Wow!’ like Owen Wilson. Even more amazingly, the event is due to last for TWO HOURS. That’s a lot of wows.
