Woman Has 'Most Devastating Moment' Of Her Life After Stranger Hands Over Secret Sketch Of Her
| Last updated
A TikToker has shared a hilarious story about the time a stranger decided to sketch her from afar, only to leave her 'almost crying' when he handed her the finished product. You can see the questionable artwork she was given below:
TikTok user Emma Keane (@emmakeanehaha) posted a video on the platform, writing: "Getting handed that piece of sketchbook paper was the most devastating moment of my life."
In the clip, she recalled how she'd been travelling from Connecticut to LA, and that it had been the first time she travelled by herself cross-country.
"I was wearing this," Emma said, cutting to a photo showing her outfit that day - a black crop top, grey hoodie and a pair of jeans.
She continued: "Pretty normal travel outfit situation, right? But I was kind of feeling myself. It was the first time I was going cross-country - whatever, I was feeling good about what I was doing.
"I'm sitting down at the gate, I'm in Minnesota, it's seven in the morning and this guy - about my age - he sits down across from me and he starts staring at me.
"And then he whips out a sketch book and a 24-pack of Crayolas, and he starts staring at me and drawing, and staring at me and drawing.
"At first I'm a little bit creeped out - at first I'm like, 'Is he drawing me right now?'
"Then I'm like, 'Is this creepy or is this awesome? I decided it was awesome."
Emma admitted that after realising she felt OK with what was going on, she then started 'posing' as she read her book.
Then, after around 30 minutes, she said the stranger got up from his seat and walked over to her.
"He goes, 'Hey, I'm sorry if this is weird but I drew you'," Emma explained.
"He handed me this drawing. THIS. HE HANDED ME THIS. I almost started crying."
Emma shows viewers the picture she was given, which isn't exactly the most flattering depiction of her.
It looks as if it could have been scribbled by a child, rather than a guy her age called 'Joe'.
"Never before in my life have I been humbled so instantly," she said, adding: "I think that constitutes a hate crime."
Her video has since gone viral, racking up more than 687,000 views and thousands of comments.
One person wrote: "This is the best thing I've ever seen. I would not know how to respond I think I would have to just pass away."
Another said: "Men have such unfounded confidence sometimes it's so funny."
A third quipped: "When you're expecting Jack from Titanic and you get Joe from the airport."
A fourth added: "The first red flag was the crayons."
