Kumail Nanjiani's story about his wife's anniversary gift is pure genius

A smartly dressed man sitting in a chair looks surprised.

Ever played Framed, the Wordle-style game where you guess a movie based on key images?

Well, Kumail Nanjiani does. Plays it every day, apparently. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Obi-Wan Kenobi and Eternals star told guest host Rob McElhenney that he was playing Framed on the morning of his anniversary while at work, worrying about what to get his wife after he’d learned that she’d got him a present despite their agreement not to buy gifts for each other.

“The first screen pops up and it’s a wide shot of Chicago, and I’m like, ‘I think this is the movie Emily and I did together, The Big Sick!'” says Nanjiani in the clip above. “On our wedding anniversary, the movie we made about us meeting and falling in love. What are the odds? Crazy, right? Amazing!”

Feeling good about the day again, Nanjiani explains that he called his wife as soon as she was up to tell her about their movie being on Framed.

“So 8 a.m. I call her and I say, ‘Hey Emily, you should play Framed today.’ And she says, ‘I know. Happy anniversary.'”

Now that is how you do an anniversary present.
