The story of how perennial Internet favorite Chris Pratt got his infamous first headshot is almost as good as the headshot itself.

A couple weeks ago, Pratt graced us with a throwback Thursday photo to make all others pale in comparison: his very first headshot. And it’s glorious.

The name’s Douchemaster McChest And this is my first headshot. You’re welcome. #throwbackthursday circa 2000

Of course, when he stopped by to chat with Jimmy Fallon, the infamous headshot came up again and he just had to know how it happened. Pratt, like always, delivered and it sounds like something completely improbable that’d come straight out of a comedy or horror (depending on how twisted your sense of humor is).

For all we know, he could be making it up, but does it really matter? The Internet’s already lapping it up.
