So who else was taken aback when Lawrence (a.k.a. actor Jay Ellis) just went and popped up on us in the last five seconds of the latest episode of Insecure? Oh, OK… so everybody then, right? Cool. Well, one super fan, now being dubbed the lieutenant of the #LawrenceHive, had by far the BEST reaction, so says Jay Ellis himself.
Garrett Richardson went viral after his fiancé posted his dramatic reaction to Lawrence springing up at the 7-Eleven during Beychella. While Issa Rae and the whole cast had us thinking Lawrence was gone for good (there was a whole petition to bring him back!), they were setting us up for an epic “We GOTCHA!” moment. It worked, and Garrett’s reaction is a whole mood. Check it out for yourself:
The moment continued some more. Guys, this is pure #BlackBoyJoy at its finest!
Yes, that’s a Best Buy-inspired shirt with Lawrence’s name on it, which might now be the official Lawrence Hive jersey. In case you were wondering where to cop yours, Garrett got his here.
After Garrett’s reaction hit the web, Jay Ellis took to Twitter to announce his top five favorite responses to his prolific Insecure return…
And Garrett nabbed the number-one spot!
