Orlando Bloom must've missed the futuristic memo, and we're damn glad he did.  

At this year's Met Gala —  "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" — celebrities draped themselves in metallic, glow-in-the-dark garments fit for a journey to Mars. But what's that? Amid a sea of metaled couture, a wild piece of plastic emerged.

Pinned to Bloom's lapel was a Tamagotchi. 

And like any nervous newbie in a swarm of paparazzi and superstars, the digital pet shit itself

So on what many consider one of the most glamorous nights of the year, Bloom wore a Tamagotchi, nay, a shitting Tamagotchi. 

2015 was the year of Rihanna's fur-trimmed yellow cape. While many are clamoring over Claire Danes' light-up dress, I'm going to give 2016 to Orlando's soiled Tamagotchi.
