Prom is a special day for any teen. You get dressed up, wear your fanciest hair and makeup, and take plenty of photos with your date to remember the night forever. So nothing puts a damper on those memories like a bad breakup.

That’s what happened to Gabi Dunn of London, Ontario, who broke up with her boyfriend, Jeff Bright, only two days after prom. Yikes.

“It didn’t feel great,” Dunn told Buzzfeed News.

But why let all those great photos go to waste just because of a guy? Gabi decided to do something fun to try to redeem the photos from her relationship drama, and maybe make a hilarious dig at her ex.

She replaced her date in all her photos… with Ryan Reynolds:

That’s right. Why waste time over an ex when you can pretend you went to prom with Deadpool himself? Gabi put her impressive Photoshop skills to use to make an unpleasant memory into a celebrity dream date.

“I kind of have a huge love for Ryan Reynolds, and I wasn’t totally feeling myself on prom day, so I wanted to post my look,” she told Yahoo Style. “Who could be a better prom date than him?”

The real-life Hollywood star discovered the photo and came to Gabi’s defense in an awesome way:

That’s right: not only was the star cool with the photo edit, he suggested upping the ante with even more ex-replacements, even coining a hashtag.

But what about the other half of the breakup? Jeff wasn’t gonna just sit back and let some Hollywood heartthrob Photoshop him out of existence, and shot back with an alarming threat: not paying to see Deadpool 2.

But really, it’s all in good fun: the ex couple is still on good terms. Gabi told Buzzfeed News that she is now over it, and that the two are “still friends.”

“It was a bad breakup, but I’m totally enjoying this now,” she told Yahoo Style.

And for that matter, Jeff holds no grudge against his replacement.

“I think it’s cool,” he told Buzzfeed. “I think it’s nice that she used another Canadian.”

But don’t expect Gabi and Ryan Reynolds to go on any non-imaginary dates. She has no interest in breaking up his happy marriage to Blake Lively, as she joked on Twitter:

After going viral, Gabi’s post has inspired others to share their own Photoshop prom fantasies:

So what’s next for Gabi, now that she’s a newly single girl mingling with celebrities? Well, according to Yahoo Style, she’s planning to move to Toronto (leaving her suburb for the big city) and plans to travel.

And as for her love life, Gabi seems pretty content without a man (real or Photoshopped) in her life:
