Kristen Bell Uber misadventure: Frozen star live tweets carpool
Stars, they’re just like us! On Thursday, Kristen Bell accidentally selected a carpool ride while using the popular transportation app Uber.
“I did press ‘pool’ but I thought it was a fun summer reference,” Bell tweeted. “Like how @google changes fonts to celebrate holidays.”
Unfortunately for Bell, it’s not a reference: As noted on the Uber webpage, UberPool is a ride-share service.
“The idea is simple. With UberPool, you share a ride — and split the cost — with another person who just happens to be requesting a ride along a similar route,” reads the UberPool copy. “The beauty, though, is that you still get Uber-style on-demand convenience and reliability: just push the button like before and get a car in five minutes. When we find a match, we notify you of your co-rider’s first name.”
Still, Bell was mostly undeterred by her error. The Frozen star live-tweeted the adventure, which included a Star Wars joke and a little Bon Jovi.
