"Wow" is to Owen Wilson as "That's hot" is to Paris, as "Smize" is to Tyra, as "Aha! moment" is to Oprah. It is his catchword, his calling card, his legacy. It has blessed the movies of Wes Anderson (The Darjeeling Limited) and Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris) with shades of adorably guileless Texan awe since 1996, when Wilson's first feature-length movie, Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket, hit theaters. And thanks to a new Youtube supercut produced by "Owenergy Studios," below, you can now enjoy the full breadth and subtlety of Wilson's use of the word, which includes breathy disbelief (making out in a produce aisle), casual surprise (enjoying a well-executed flipbook) and the catlike meow at 1:07.
