Internet swoons over Chris Evans, again.  This time it's over a mustache, Boston accent, and a new shirt.

Internet swoons over Chris Evans, again. This time it’s over a mustache, Boston accent, and a new shirt.

Remember the infamous Chris Evans Sweater incident? It was sparked by none other than former Mashable senior editor Nicole Gallucci and Decider’s Anna Menta (both of whom are friends, hello friends!). It was a moment of seemingly endless internet thirst for Evans, simply for donning an (admittedly good-looking) sweater in the film Knives Out.

Well, guess what, folks, the internet is swooning over Evans once again. Sure this isn’t an uncommon thing. Evans is a handsome guy and he’s charming and famous and all those other things. He’s got America’s ass, after all. But folks are really losing it over a specific clip online. It’s feeling very sweater-esque. Here’s the clip in question, which took place at an event for Disney’s new Buzz Lightyear movie.

We need to fully investigate what’s going on here. Evans grew out a killer mustache to star in Netflix’s upcoming film The Gray Man. He seems to be talking about that mustache with an interviewer. But good lord his charm is turned up to 11. The Boston accent, which you don’t always hear in Evans, is almost sultry? How the fuck did this man make a Boston accent sultry? It’s uncool and unfair to jabronis like me with an unholy Delaware accent that mashes together all the worst parts of Philly and Baltimore.

Anyway, Evans, fully bearded, in sunglasses and a resplendent, silky, orange shirt, is laying it on thick. “Whaddayou pruhfah: mustache or no mustache, be awnest,” he asks the interviewer, dishing out a slick smile.

Anyway, the internet lost its collective mind thirsting over this moment. There were fan edits.

And great reaction memes and jokes, most of which are frankly too graphic to share but that’s impressive in its own right.

If you were curious, Access uploaded a longer version of the interview clip on YouTube.

The interviewer, in this longer clip, admits he thought the mustachioed Evans looked like trouble. But Evans himself made a little joke about liking the facial hair.

“I mean look, it’s embarrassing to say, but it grew on me,” he said. “That’s a little pun. But I started to really like the mustache, I did.”

Damn, what a charming freaking answer. Evans, you did it again.

Anyway, this is not yet even close to a Sweater-Level Event but the internet is definitely…let’s say… excited about Chris Evans online again.
