My family lives in Nashville, so I know that the fine people of the musical city don’t often get too head over heels when they see themselves a celebrity, but this is pretty ridiculous.
According to Instagram user Jedidiah Jenkins—whose mom throws a giant potluck dinner with her neighbors—White crashed the party without any warning, with NOT A SINGLE SOUL even recognizing who the famous singer even was.
The caption describes the situation in detail… and is pretty hilarious:
This picture is incredible. My sister texted it to me. Listen to this.
My mom helps put on a neighborhood potluck in front of my childhood home. Our little dead-end street is populated primarily with older and quiet people. The houses are modest and suburban. My neighborhood has been doing this potluck for over a decade. At the bottom of our street, there is a large gated historic home shrouded in trees. We’ve never really spotted that neighbor. But we have from time to time heard guitar coming from the garage.
This year, without warning, the occupant decided to come mingle with the neighbors. Of course many of them had no idea who he was. “Jack White? nice to meet you.” He apologized for traveling so much and missing out over the years. #lifeiswonderful by @making_dinner #lookatthesepeople #theyhavenoidea #notelvisdontcare
Jack White is one of the most famous musicians on the planet—albeit, not in the public eye much—but, still, for NO ONE to recognize him is insane.
Here’s the real question, though: Did he bring that “famous” guacamole recipe that he joked about earlier this year, something else or just chow on everyone else’s grub?
