If you watch a lot of TV, you're bound to run into a recognizable commercial actor or actress popping up in multiple ads. But sometimes, familiar faces pop up in other places rather than just conventional commercials, like bus advertisements, newspaper ads, etc. Which brings us to imgur user Emetkees, who started to notice this girl about 7 years ago:
And then he started noticing her in more and more places. In his Facebook feed, in Groupon ads, EVERYWHERE. Well, this lead to a long, stalker-esque but kinda sweet, journey to find out who exactly this girl was. Check out his abberviated post below, or for the full story go here.
It was almost 7 years ago now (not sure exactly) that I slowly started noticing this girl. I would see her every few weeks, when I was out and about, which is more often than usual to see a complete stranger. She wasn't my lunch waitress or my neighbor. I would see her at all sorts of places. Sometimes on my way to work. Sometimes at the shopping centre. Sometimes at a party. And then once in the newspaper!
She wasn't somebody you would particularly notice either. No distinct facial features or unique characteristics. She was good looking, but she was also quite plain. Not particularly old or young. No particular nationality either. In fact, she seemed to be nationality-less. Part Asian, part Brazilian. I'm not sure.
But I would always recognise her, even though I'd never met. She wasn't famous or rich... because I once pointed her out to a few friends, and they had no idea. She seemed so familiar, yet so unknown. She didn't have family resemblance, or a famous doppelganger... but I saw her everywhere.
