A short, handsome, cool dude. Everybody loves them and they’ll always be there for you. Gimmick is a person so caring it’s almost to a fault because they put everyone else’s needs above their own. They are multitalented, especially when regarding the fine arts, and are always willing to lend a helping hand. Besides just being somebody who is talented, funny and kind, a Gimmick will also be extremely intelligent and good at things like math and science, which shines through in their rubix cube skills, gaming abilities, and various other instances. Gimmick is also a tech-deck god. If you know a Gimmick, thank the universe everyday for putting someone so amazing into your life.
Person 1: Did you see Gimmick and Danielle the other day ?

Person 2: Yeah! Theyre so sweet to her.

Person 1: Well, they are named Gimmick.
Person 2: It suits them.

A person of mixed Italian/Irish ancestry. From a combination of racial epithets Guinea and Mick.
Tony acts all Italian, but he's got an Irish mother, so he's really just a Gimmick in disguise.
