Post Titled: case of the ol' mistaken identity
A few months ago I was trying to find Michelle Henery. She was once was subletting the apartment above me, we'd gone out to coffee and she interviewed me for Deutsche Welle Radio, etc.- she was a really cool person, however at some point last year her emails started bouncing back- email address no longer valid, so I googled her name and came across a lot a lot via google.
One thing that struck me out of all that was a wonderful quote by Will Smith: "Last February, actor Will Smith told a crowd at the Motion Picture Association of America that he was once mistaken for Barack Obama. An elderly couple approached him and said, "We love what you're doing. You're so great for the country!" according to Smith.

After Smith thanked them and walked away, the man said, "And we'll be sure to vote for you."" from ABC news

No mention of how old they were, though. Hm. I know that on a trip to the park with my +80 year old grandparents that they'd chatted with a couple for a good 15 minutes before the other guy mentioned his Asian heritage and my grandfather replied "ohhh, I didn't even notice you were oriental!"

on a sidenote, Cory says that Mr. Smith saying "OH HELLLLL NO!" in every single movie must be somewhere in his contract...

oh, and further down that rabbit hole, while trying to find a compilation of Will Smith saying "oh hell no" I stumble upon the weird world of youtube non-porn porn promotions, like this one. THey are... truly... bizarre...
