(Newser) – You might have seen the memes, or videos like this one, poking a little fun at how often Owen Wilson says "wow." They're like those focusing on Matthew McConaughey's recitation of "all right," but apparently have a more enthusiastic following. Case in point: About 4,000 people and counting say they'll attend a Monday event in Australia for the express purpose of gathering to say "wow" like Wilson, per Mashable.

The organizer of the Melbourne meet-up tells the Herald Sun that the event started as a joke but is "all real now." He adds he's been touched by the outpouring of support from fans "fascinated with repeating the same annoying phrase over and over again." Can't make it to Melbourne? Zoumboulis also operates a Facebook page for the "Owen community," though it stresses it "does not represent Owen Wilson nor his views in any way, shape or wow." (Read more uplifting news stories.)
