Amy Schumer pulled out all the stops to make sure she won the meme challenge that many of her A-list peers have been taking part in.

It all started when actress Elizabeth Banks posted a photo of herself with a tiny Tom Hanks photoshopped on her shoulder, kicking on the Elf on a Shelf celebrity pun challenge on Instagram. Banks had seen actress Garcelle Beauvais post the meme on her own page and decided to try it out.

"I know you’ve all heard of Elf on a Shelf, but have you heard of..." Banks wrote next to the picture, which reinvents the rhyme to read Hanks on Banks.

Celebrities of all kinds quickly joined in, including Gal Gadot posting a picture of "Pascal on Gal," Reese Witherspoon going with "Grease on Reese," Kerry Washington doing "Perry on Kerry," Jennifer Garner using "Penn on Jen" and her 13 Going on 30 costar Mark Ruffalo enlisting Robert Downey Jr.'s Marvel character for "Stark on Mark."

While all of those are good and fun, Schumer took it to the next level by using three celebrities to up her game. Photoshopping several images into a Zoom video chat, Schumer used Heidi Klum, Orlando Bloom (with Katy Perry) and Rumer Willis to make the ultimate pun.

"Klum on Bloom on Ruum on Schum on Zoom," wrote Schumer.

Celebs quickly reacted in the comments, with Bloom writing, "Schum always raising the bar" while Samantha Ronson declared her the champ.

"For the win. This should end here," wrote Ronson.

Schumer's post came after Willis used the comedian for her own pun, posting a picture of herself photoshopped on Schumer for "Rumer on Schumer."

"Honored to share this profound moment with you @amyschumer," Willis wrote on her post.

"The honor is absolutely mine. We are now connected for life in a very real way," Schumer replied in the comments.
