Garcelle Beauvais, Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Banks and more put their spin on viral Elf on the Shelf meme


John Tsiavis/BravoA new viral meme has taken over the internet and it’s inspired by the Elf on the Shelf Christmas tradition. 

In this quirky and funny new trend, celebrities are posting photos of themselves with other stars whose name rhymes with theirs. 

Co-host of The Real and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais was seemingly the first to get things started by sharing a meme of herself sitting on the shoulders of singer Pharrell Williams on Tuesday, December 1. Above it read the phrase, “You’ve heard of Elf on a Shelf, now get ready for this…”

Since then, numerous celebrities have hopped on board. 

Elizabeth Banks shared a pic of Tom Hanks sitting on her shoulder alongside the caption, “I know you’ve all heard of Elf on a Shelf, but have you heard of…(Inspired by @garcelle).”

Piggybacking off of Banks’ post, Reese Witherspoon chimed in with a photo of two character from Grease dancing on her shoulder. 

“Oh hey @elizabethbanks! I see your Hanks-on-Banks and I raise you a Grease-on-Reese,” she wrote. 

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot also jumped in with Pascal-on-Gal, as well as, Mark Ruffalo with Stark on Mark
