The 90th Academy Awards took a break from handing out awards midway through the show on Sunday as Jimmy Kimmel, Gal Gadot, Mark Hamill and Guillermo Del Toro led a group of actors and directors out of the Dolby Theatre.
The group walked across the street in Los Angeles to a different theater where an unsuspecting audience thought they were seeing a sneak peek of the upcoming film A Wrinkle In Time. But once Kimmel and Gadot entered the theater the lights immediately went up and the audience realized they were live on national television.
The actors all began handing out snacks to the moviegoers, but one man quickly stood out. Armie Hammer, star of the Oscar-nominated film Call Me Be Your Name, broke out a giant hot dog cannon and started firing delicious hot dogs into the crowd.
Hammer's stunt quickly turned into a laugh riot on Twitter.
