The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: Viggo Mortensen’s Ridiculous Teen Heartthrob NYT Magazine Cover

UHHHHHHH, HEYYYYYYYY, VIGGO MORTENSEN, WHAT’S UP? I didn’t realize Delia’s was doing catalogues for boys now. (Q: Does Delia’s even still exist? A: I’m an adult man.) This is the cover for this weekend’s Sunday New York Times fashion magazine, T. So, I will repeat the question: hey, Viggo Mortensen, WHAT’S UP? The dude is 53 years old. 53 YEARS OLD! So we’re not even just talking about the age-inappropriate outfit, which makes him look like he’s not sure if he’s going to make it to Jacob’s bar mitzvah this weekend because the new skate park opened two towns over and if he can convince his mom to drive him and Brad then the two of them are going to go shred. It’s also the FACE HE IS MAKING. He looks like he’s asking to borrow your lip balm as a pretext to fingerbang you under the bleachers. Hey, Viggo Mortensen, Jordan Catalano called and said he wants 1993 back. And finally, what is up with that sub-headline? “Hollywood’s grungy anti-hero”? How so? He’s handsome, and successful, and has certainly played some challenging roles, but was also just a straight up HERO in Lord of the Rings, and what does the word “grungy” even mean in the year 2011? I think it’s an adjective to describe squash blossoms at a fancy restaurant. Whatever. Caption it, or don’t, like, so over it and it’s your funeral sooooo. Dude.
