About a year ago I was on the internet and did a double take. Who was that slightly ambiguous, slightly attractive Asian girl, and how did I know her?
I couldn’t figure it out, so I went about my life. Until two weeks later…and there she was again! This time on a billboard. What was happening? Was I the only one seeing this “girl next door” Asian girl showing up everywhere I turned?
I decided at that point that I would start documenting this, to prove that I wasn’t insane. And sure enough, on the internet, in the USA, in a London chicken shop, and even in a bookstore in Barcelona Spain, there she was, masquerading as a customer service girl, a work-from-home gal, a happy vacationer, a bed and breakfast traveler, and even as a staged ‘popcorn lover’.
Every single one of this pictures was taken by me personally either with my phone or with a screenshot on my laptop, completely “serendipitously” and without searching for her.
Behold, my collection:
1. “Damsel in Defense” Billboard at 4th of July Carnival in Provo, Utah
If you mess with this girl she’ll sock you in the face with her pink boxing gloves and then pull out her “personal protection products” on you. Ok, that’s fine.
2. Customer Service Thank You Email for UPrinting.com
But she’s a nice girl. She’ll even answer my calls when I have questions about printing products at UPrinting!
3. “Work From Home” Ad for MrsJanuary.com
But I thought she worked at the printing place answering my calls? Does she do that from home? Sure looks like she wears a uniform to work for UPrinting…
4. Barcelona, Spain Gift Shop
A double citing in Spain! Apparently this girl has some time to travel. Not only did she make the “Barcelona News,” but it looks like she also had some time to hit the beach! And apparently she can’t seem to throw away her camera from 2nd grade…
Wow, this girl designs logos, too? Does the printing company know about this? By my count she sells personal protection products, answers calls at the printing factory, travels Europe (and does something cool enough to get into the Barcelona News), and designs logos. All while working from home?
6. Ashley Furniture in Draper, Utah
I was starting to think that this girl didn’t have any time to sleep working 4 jobs. Turns out she does! Ashley Furniture snagged this picture of her with her pillow.
7. Paris Traveler on Bedandbreakfast.eu
Looks like she’s fled Barcelona and is now shopping on the Champs de Elysee in Paris. Seriously, where is this girl finding the time to travel?
8. Internet Ad for NextAdvisor.com
Well, at least we know how she’s paying for everything.
And paying enthusiastically.
9. Chicken Cottage, London England
And my personal favorite. There I was roaming the streets of London when I walked past a quaint little fast food place called “Chicken Cottage.” And you guessed it. Homegirl’s face (not sure if those are her hands though) was larger than life staring back at me on the wall. Life made.
10. Who Am I?, HomeGoods in Indianapolis, Indiana
You can’t fool me stock Asian photo girl. You’re not big bird.
