Steve Buscemi now has a second home in Wisconsin.

The 58-year-old actor, best known for starring in Fargo and Boardwalk Empire, was unwittingly the key player in a hilarious prank that’s captured the Internet’s attention.

Wisconsin resident Kevin Manion slowly replaced the family photos in his parents’ home with only solo shots of Buscemi. Despite adorning most of the shelves with Buscemi’s mug, Kevin said it took five full days for his mom to catch on.

“My dad noticed [on] the second day but my mom didn’t notice until the fifth day,” he told BuzzFeed. “[My mom] was in the kitchen and could tell something was wrong with my brother’s senior photo, like the colors were wrong, and his head was too big, so she walked over to it and started laughing so hard.”

Kevin’s sister, Clare, first revealed her brother’s antics to the world, through Twitter. She told BuzzFeed that Kevin concocted the idea due to summer break boredom.

In response to the media attention, Kevin wrote on Twitter, “I’ve peaked.”

Buscemi has yet to comment on the gag, but it’s not the first he’s been dragged into. In 2015, Boo Ya Pictures replaced Jamie Dornan with Buscemi in the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer. Checkmate, Kevin.
