Sadly, my bestie had long since moved away when the movie Bridesmaids came out. I watched it alone, per usual, and when I saw the airplane scene I instantly shouted, “OH MY GOD! THAT IS ALLISON!” I can’t prove it, but I’m pretty sure Kristen Wiig based her character on Alli.
Alli’s infamous back bend that occurred at (a very crowded) SIX bar in Austin. It is one of the most hilarious moments we’ve ever shared that shall be emblazoned in my brain for all eternity. Since it is such a meaningful memory, I decided to recreate it using a very powerful medium of artistic expression. Enjoy.
