Kristen Bell Carpooled In An Uber And She Live-Tweeted The Whole Thing

By

Celebrities: They're just like us. They're just wealthy and probably have car service on call, and sometimes, they order Ubers and accidentally hit the UberPool option.

Then, they deeply regret it.

Yesterday, actress Kristen Bell made that very mistake.

Instead enjoying a private, relaxing Uber ride, Bell shared the car with a few strangers. They might've been gawking at her, but she gawked right back.

What's more, she did it on Twitter, live-tweeting the ride and its ensuing awkward silence.

Bell realized she'd made a mistake when her Uber driver suddenly announced plans to pick up others.

Didn't know @uber had a carpool option, but my driver just pulled over and said "gotta pick someone else up". this should be fun. — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015

Turns out the option isn't just seasonally festive.

come to think of it, i did press "pool" but i thought it was a fun summer reference. like how @google changes fonts to celebrate holidays. — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015

Some silence is golden. This particular silence, however, was not.

noone is talking. this silence is the only thing more awkward than if all of us were talking. #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015
if I'm not home in 10 minutes pls call the police and tell them i was last seen in a honda accord with 2 males mutes. #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015

Then, the singing began.

Breaking News: one of them is singing. "take my hand, well make it swear. uhhhUUHH! livin on a prayer!" #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015
He appears to know all the words to the verses as well. pretty impressive. #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015

When the singing faded, the only thing left to do was gaze out the window.

Bell questioned where, exactly, they were headed.

not sure where the other rider is headed but were getting close to my house. then it occurs to me "WHAT IF HES COMING OVER?" #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015
ok he's opening the door and getting out. a little too close to this garbage can for my taste. #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015
alright I'm pulling up safe and sound. thank you for the ride, emanuel. it was full of surprises. #ubercarpool — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) May 28, 2015

Any interest in making this a full-time gig, Kristen?

@IMKristenBell @uber Wouldn't mind sharing a ride and a chat with you! Hey, Uber there's a marketing idea! Celeb co-shares! — Kerry is so very (@kermarshmallow) May 28, 2015
