Girl Does Impossibly Realistic Impressions Of Celebrities While Stuck In Traffic—VIDEO
I can count on one hand the number of times I have dealt with traffic in Los Angeles, and despite the fact that I was never the one driving, all of those instances continue to haunt my dreams. Honestly, props to anyone who actually lives there, because I could not find a way to deal with it, unlike this creative woman who does spot-on celebrity impressions while sitting in traffic in LA. The comedienne in question is Lauren O'Brien, a Los Angeles-based morning talk show host whose tweets have been featured on Ellen (and based on her eerily perfect impression of Ellen Degeneres in her car, I'm guessing there is already a petition somewhere out there to get her on the show that I need to sign).
Among her impressions are Taylor Swift, Mindy Kaling, BOTH Olsen twins, Katie Holmes, Kristen Stewart, Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Anne Hathaway and Lena Dunham. And she doesn't just do impressions—she full-on dresses like them before adopting all of their mannerisms and saying things that they would undoubtedly say, in a true go big or go home fashion (because we already know that with that kind of traffic, she isn't going home anytime soon).
So far this week the video has gained a lot of notoriety, including the approval of one of the celebs themselves:
I think what is remarkable (and a little bit frightening) is that she doesn't even have to do much to change her appearance to uncannily look like these celebs. I think the next big blockbuster with a girl power cast like Bridesmaids should just be this comic playing ten different characters as ten beloved actresses. Am I the only one dying to know what a conversation between Mindy Kaling and Angelina Jolie would be like?! We have the technology, and her name is Lauren O'Brien:
