Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland made the internet’s dreams come true when they recreated the famed finger-pointing Spider-Man meme, and now The Amazing Spider-Man actor has revealed how the playful image came together.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the SAG Awards, Garfield confirmed that they really did plan on recreating the meme. “It was always going to happen. I think everyone was like, ‘How do we do the meme? How do we do the meme?’” he said. “Before we shot anything, we just did a photoshoot, the three of us just pointing at each other. I think they must have got one good shot because we were all cracking up so much. We couldn’t quite contain ourselves.”

Garfield also previously told the Happy Sad Confused podcast that they needed to recreate the meme in the film “in a way that [makes sense].” He shared, “It took us a while. It kind of happened naturally while we’re on that scaffolding deciding, ‘Peter #1, Peter #2, Peter #3. But actually, I remember having a lightning bolt and then running into set and telling Jon [Watts, director]: ‘I’ve got it, I’ve got it, I’ve got it!’”

He continued, “There’s this moment where Jacob [Batalon, who plays Ned] is like, ‘Hey, Peter!’ And we all go, ‘Yeah?’ But in the script, it was like that was that. We all go ‘yeah,’ and then my Peter says, ‘This isn’t going to get old at all.’ Something kind of sardonic, which felt a little undercutting, and not quite right for the moment, because it’s cute. It’s actually kind of cute. So I remember thinking, I can say, ‘This is adorable. We’re so adorable.’”
