Open Post: Hosted By A Woman Who Photoshopped Herself Into A Picture With Michael B. Jordan And Ended Up With The Real Thing

November 29, 2018 / Posted by:

Most of us hos are too lazy to do anything about our celebrity crushes other than to lazily consider masturbating while idly thinking about sweater daddy Tom Hardy in Lawless, only to get distracted and wind up worrying that your oncoming headache is definitely a brain tumor. Not so for Bolu Babalola. Bolu put her rich fantasy life to good use and Photoshopped a picture of herself standing next to Michael B Jordan and posted it on Twitter asking people to help her reunite with her summer fling. It was a joke, of course, a play on the “please help me find… Twitter do your thing” posts that been going around of late. But to her surprise, the post went viral and faster than you can say “Wakanda Forever”, she found herself standing next to Michael in the flesh. Whores, it’s time to step up our games.

Here’s her initial tweet.

What I appreciate most about Bolu’s game is her dedication to the bit. No amount of imbecilic cries of “IT’S FAKE” would deter her from fully committing to the premise. She spent a lot of time replying to her detractors, swatting down haters, and doubling down on the premise.

Her hard work paid off and Michael saw the tweet himself.

Bolu, who is an entertainment journalist, took the opportunity to pull off a coup de grâce when she attended the Creed II premiere in London where the cast was in attendance. When it came time for the after-show Q&A, she moved on him like a bitch. After asking a legit question, she asked him if he recognized her from the viral tweet.

The rest is the stuff of internet legends. Bolu was able to take an actual picture with Michael, almost closing the circle completely.

And just one hour ago, Michael closed the loop himself.

I think we can all learn a lesson from Bolu. If you want to manifest your dreams, you have to put in the work. Even when you know that 99.9 percent of the time, it won’t do a lick of good. But if you keep at it, that 1000 page tome about the inner life of one of Tom Hardy’s Lawless cardigans, might eventually wind up in his hands.
