Fans noted that Gaga's latest makeup creation could be a spot-on reference to a classic moment from the beloved comedy Broad City.

Lady Gaga is the keeper (yes, the mother, sister, father, brother) of ace Broad City references today.

After the Oscar-winning superstar shared a new Instagram video touting her latest campaign for Valentino Beauty's Voce Viva fragrance, a fan on Twitter noticed her aesthetic in the clip closely resembles that of Abbi Jacobson's in a 2015 episode from the beloved Comedy Central series.

The episode, titled "Wisdom Teeth," sees Abbi under the care of Ilana (Ilana Glazer) while recovering from oral surgery and the effects of psychedelic sedative drugs, Vicodin, and weed. Her bout with the drug cocktail sends her on a trippy journey through New York City filled with Drew Barrymore impressions, grocery store gallivants with a life-sized stuffed rabbit named Bingo Bronson, and an insane run-in with a cosmetic brush. Fans noted the similarities between Gaga's makeup (the outlined lips, the turquoise eyeshadow, and thickly drawn eyebrows), hair (both Abbi and Gaga sport pigtails), and clothing (matching sweaters, hello!) as indicators that this is, indeed, a spot-on reference, though Gaga made no mention of the series in her post.

Gaga has long been a fan of the series, which she called her "favorite show" in a 2015 tweet after her 2011 single "The Edge of Glory" was featured in an episode that sees Abbi dancing naked through her newly empty apartment.

Elsewhere, Gaga has a healthy roster of projects lined up for the remainder of 2021. She's set to release the Dawn of Chromatica remix album featuring reimagined versions of songs from her 2020 LP by Charli XCX, Bree Runway, Rina Sawayama, Pabllo Vittar, and more, before she drops her latest collaborative album, Love for Sale, with Tony Bennett in October. She'll also hit the big screen in the prospective awards contender House of Gucci in November.
