The 25 Best Tweets From #ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin



I had begun to see a ton of photos like this on Tumblr recently with the caption “This could be us but you playin’.” The photos were always some subversion of the perfect couple. Instead of long walks on the beach it would be, like, photos of Dean and Castiel from Supernatural eating pie or  Beyoncé and Jay Z in “Partition” or some other totally ridiculous pair. My go to #ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin would be that photo of Zac Efron and Dave Franco sitting on a porch and drinking coffee from Neighbors. You know that picture. That beautiful, beautiful picture. Today my favorite thing to look forward to on Tumblr became a hashtag on Twitter. If someone has ever tried to run game on you, if your crush just won’t stop frontin’, if you long for a future where you and your boo could watch Netflix and snuggle without drama, then #ThisCouldBeUsButYouPlayin is the hashtag for you.
