Our spidey senses are tingling courtesy of the Tom Holland memes gaining viral attention.

Though a Tom Holland Euphoria cameo is still a mystery, we can confirm for certain that the latest actor to step into Peter Parker's shoes has a sense of humor. While promoting the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home on 4K and digital streaming, Holland and his superhero predecessors recreated an iconic meme.

You are undoubtedly familiar with the Spider-Man illustration that depicts three of the vigilantes pointing at one another. It's practically internet royalty. Well, Holland teamed up with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire—Peter Parkers of yesteryear—to bring it to life.

It's Spider-Man times three! Consider this the live-action version of your favorite meme. Have a look at the LOL moment below.

Tom Holland and Zendaya have been promoting their 2021 super-hero film for the past several months, but this trio seems to be the real showstopper. (No offense to the lovely Zendaya, of course.) 

Though the pointing gesture is meant to symbolize hypocrisy online, most fans aren't aware of its origins: the scene comes from the 1960's Spider-Man cartoon, where the do-gooder had to fight off two imposters. (Ahh, nostalgia!)

The film is set to arrive on digital on March 22. Several weeks later, it'll be available in 4K UHD and Blu-ray on April 12. You can pre-order it online (opens in new tab)
