WTF is this GIF?

Dylan Sprouse—twin of Cole, maker of artisanal mead, and not a cast member on the CW's Riverdale—is the star of a brand new editorial with W magazine alongside his adorable model girlfriend Barbara Palvin.

As I scrolled through, expecting to learn all about what it's like to be two pretty famous, very hot people and, you know, date each other, I was stopped in my cyber tracks by a particularly jarring image. Buried beneath the series of '70s inspired images that would make your still VSCO obsessed friend's heart sing, was a GIF of Sprouse spreading the hind legs of a raw pink chicken.

If I could remove this image from my memory by scrubbing my eyes, or hitting my head against a very hard wall, I would! The way Sprouse's lips curl slightly up into a smirk as the camera pulls away and the once feather-covered chicken limbs spread, is nothing short of menacing. But on second, third, fifteenth watch I wondered... is there someone out there who is turned on by this? Are there die-hard Sprouse fans that would see this GIF and think, I wish I were that chicken? Is there such a thing as a raw chicken kink? Does *shudder* Sprouse himself have this kink?

I sure as hell hope not.

If you need to see it... if you really must... scroll away, my raw chicken loving friend.

We talk to the stars and creator about the show's iconic first season

Veronica Mars is a show that's had more than nine lives over the course of its 15-year run. What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.
