  • There was a woman handing out Fiji Water bottles at Sunday night’s Golden Globe’s pre-show event.
  • She was spotted turning up in a few photos. Then a lot of photos.
  • Then she pretty quickly turned into the first meme of 2019.

As the world settled in to enjoy the glitz and glamour of the 76th annual Golden Globes on Sunday night, something strange happened.

At the first major awards event of the year, with A-listers pouring onto the red carpet, the internet began to notice someone unexpected.

Someone that happened to be in almost every red carpet shot:

A young woman in a blue dress with a tray of Fiji Water bottles – the beverage brand was a backer of this year’s awards show – began to turn up in the background of a few red carpet photographs.

And a few more.

Then, before the widening eyes of the internet, “Fiji Water Girl” – as she has become known – morphed into the year’s first show-stopping meme.

The internet has been literally upended by what may or may not be some very cunning, strategically placed, highly tweeteble water-carrying.

Either that, or Fiji Water Girl has taught the world a lesson in scorched earth photobombing.

Scroll down for how the internet has not coped.
