Chrissy Teigen Asked People To Share A Time They Were Famous For Like A Minute, And The Results Are Hilarious

"I was the first male zombie shot on the first episode of The Walking Dead."

Chrissy Teigen, whose boredom during quarantine has led to a ton of really good Twitter and Instagram content, took to Twitter yesterday to ask her followers a very important question: Have they ever been briefly famous?

have you ever been famous but for like 1 minute? a talking head on an infomercial, in the background of a big movie? something u share with people at dinner parties but it's so stupid..I would like to see it

Chrissy's own minute of fame came shortly before meeting John Legend on the set of his music video for "Stereo," when her boobs starred in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift as "girl getting out of car."

My boobs are in fast and the furious Tokyo drift. I sat on the floor with 200 people in a parking garage in downtown la. They pulled me to be “girl getting out of car”’and the shot ended up cutting off at my face as they panned up my body. Lmao

Tons of people responded to Chrissy's question, proving that basically everyone knows at least one person who's been an extra in a movie or TV show. Here are a few of the highlights from people who will forever have a wild story to tell if they need to fill awkward dinner party silence:

1. This superstar whose wiener leggings will never be forgotten.

@chrissyteigen That time a photo of me in wiener leggings was pasted all over the city of Philadelphia, as well as the Internet

2. This Last Week Tonight With John Oliver employee who did a wonderful job of being dramatically punched in the face.

11. This guy who actually ~married~ Priyanka Chopra first, so take that, Nick Jonas!!!

@chrissyteigen I got “married” to Priyanka Chopra in 2014. I put two flower leis on her to welcome her to a “green carpet” event in Tampa. Little did I know that symbolized “marriage” in Indian culture. The Indian press had a field day with it and I was giving exclusive interviews the next day.
