John Cusack Raises Our Hopes For The Second Coming Of Lloyd Dobler At Peter Gabriel Concert


John Cusack in Say Anything

We’re pretty sure there were a couple of decades in which both John Cusack and Peter Gabriel were a little sick of people imitating that whole boombox-in-the-air scene from Say Anything. But when Gabriel celebrated the 25th anniversary of his album So, Cusack gave in to our collective nostalgia for the 1989 movie, stepping onstage to deliver a boombox to the singer as his band played opening bars of “In Your Eyes.”

It was a cute, brief interlude. But what really gets us about this exchange is what happened afterwards. Cameron Crowe, the writer/director of Say Anything, tweeted about it, and Cusack responded:

Then he added, “If I were u I would follow @CameronCrowe and occasionally suggest we work together again – was so happy to see him last night at gabriel.”

Um, wow. If this isn’t a call out for every straight girl in the world to rise up and start an international tweet campaign to bring about the second coming of Lloyd Dobler, we don’t know what. And all of you men still complaining that the iconic emo boyfriend ruined women’s expectations of romance, time to step up your game.
