Sam Jackson and Victoria Beckham Shared a Moment of Intensely Awkward Recognition

By Dustin Rowles | Celebrities Are Better than You | July 7, 2014 | Comments ()


Sam Jackson and Victoria Beckham were at Wimbledon yesterday, and the two ended up sitting next to each other, though it is clear from this incredibly awkward moment captured on Vine that the two have never met.

Here’s basically what I expect is going on in the minds of each:

Beckham: There’s a strange man next to me who won’t stop scratching his thigh. It’s so loud. Why is he doing that? In my periphery, it’s hard to tell what’s going on. I’ll just turn my head real sublty, oooh, I recognize that guy. He’s Sam Jackson. I should say hell …. oh wait a second. What if he’s not Sam Jackson, and then he thinks that I think that all black guys look the same. ABORT. ABORT.

Jackson: Huh. Is that one of the Spice Girls? The one that’s married to the soccer guy? It’s hard to tell. All the 90s female pop stars look the same to me. Why am I scratching my leg SO INTENSELY. Am I making her uncomfortable? I should say something. Oh, she’s turning toward me … nope, she’ pulled out. I’ll just scratch my head, too. That way she’ll just think it’s break-out of itchy, dry skin all over my body and not localized on my right thigh, which I continue to scratch with OUT-OF-MY-HEAD INTENSITY.

LOOK AWAY, SPICE GIRL. Are you SCARY SPICE, because you’re freaking me out.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Bad Superman

    Looks like love at first sight to me.

  • L.O.V.E.

    This Vine makes much more sense once you realize he is purring under his breath that entire time.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I would have expected more profanity from both of them.

  • Reminds me of the time I saw someone at a movie theatre, and I couldn't figure out where I knew them from. Turns out, it was my gynocologist.

  • logan

    I think Sam is just screwing with her by scratching himself constantly.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    She's clearly an Hydra agent trying to maintain her cover amid the crowd.

  • Stephen Baltz

    Hail Hydra!!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Celebrities! They're awkward like us!

  • emmalita

    I'd have to keep my eyes averted too. If I made eye contact, a torrent of incomprehensible babble would come out of my mouth and then I'd try to touch him and end up in jail.

  • Kala

    He's one of the few celebrities that would cause me to break out into an uncontrollable smile. A smile so wide and so unwavering that I would probably unnerve the poor guy.

  • logan

    I'm sure Lawrence Fishburne is used to it by now.
