Blasting News reported in April on the story of 25-year-old Denver Dodd of Fort Smith, Arkansas. He had been going through some old photos when he found a photo of his grandmother, taken while she was drunk back in 1967. In the picture, she looked almost exactly like Johansson. After the image went viral on Reddit, Scarlett sent a video message directly to Geraldine, the doppelgänger in question, inviting her to get trashed with her at the premiere of her then upcoming comedy film “Rough Night.” Well, it finally happened.
