A Girl Has Been Catching Her Classmate Matching His Shirt To His Drink Every Day In School

A "national hero" and "the greatest of all time" are only some of the titles people have given teen Brian Milan.

Posted on

This is 16-year-old Brian Milan. He's currently a sophomore at a high school in Stafford County, Virginia. He's like a lot of kids at school, except he's been secretly pulling a hilariously slick and random as hell stunt since the start of the year.

Milan said his inside joke — again, with himself — eventually led students, and even teachers, to start noticing. One of his peers, Chloe Alwes, started sneakily taking photos of Milan in class every day. Alwes told BuzzFeed News she started noticing a few months ago, but thought "at first it was an accident," she said.

Alwes said she and Milan aren't super close friends, but they do sometimes chat and joke around in class.

"He's a nice kid!" she said of Milan. "Very quiet, normally he keeps to himself."

But her observations and suspicions eventually led her and another friend in class to just ask him, straight up, if he's been intentionally matching his shirt with his different drinks every day.

"My friend and I asked and he said he did on purpose," she recalled. "I'm not sure why but it's hilarious."

Alwes eventually posted some of her documentations to Twitter, where it's since exploded. Her photos of Milan have been retweeted over 123,000 times, and have even found their way on Reddit and all over Instagram.

People are picking up on Milan's now-iconic steez, and are calling him a "national hero" and the "greatest of all time."

People are enamored with and highly entertained by him.

For those wondering what it is in Milan's water bottles, he's said it's different flavors of Gatorade or Kool-Aid.

@oldirtyfuckaroo @blogdiva What the fuck is that crap? Fiji water isn’t red OR blue - does he use Mio or something? Food coloring?

Someone pondered what he'd wear if one day there was actually water in his bottle...

@oldirtyfuckaroo i wonder what he'd wear if he drank water lmao

...To which someone else responded with this image:

@Sixties_Love @oldirtyfuckaroo probably this

The joke has been going on for so long, that whenever Alwes isn't at school, Milan sends her a photo of his matching OOTD.

@oldirtyfuckaroo he wanted to make sure i was aware bc i wasnt there today LMAO

She said sometimes she, or other peers, will actually request colors.

On this particular day, depicted above, they had asked for "red."

Milan is planning to keep the schtick up for "awhile." And as he was speaking to BuzzFeed News, he informed us that even then he was matching.
