ORLANDO, Fla. -
Jordan Alexander did not think that her annoyance on a Disney ride would be so popular on the Internet.
Like most theme park rides, Disney World's Splash Mountain snaps images of park-goers at the height of the ride.
Alexander was not excited.
She wanted her husband, Steven, to go on the ride with her.
"It was a long day. I had bronchitis, I had a crying baby and my husband informed me that he doesn't have it in him to ride my favorite ride," Alexander told WSTM, explaining her expression in the photo.
"It was hot and I was getting tired, but she really wanted to go on Splash Mountain and I had promised her earlier that I would go on it with her," her husband said. "At the time I was just beat and I said, 'I don't think I'm going to go on Splash Mountain.' She said, 'Fine, then I'm going to go on by myself."
Jordan Alexander planned to get her husband back in time for the photo op.
"I kind of practiced it the whole way," she said. "And by the time we got to the last drop I didn't know where the camera was and so I just guessed and looked over and took the picture and that was that."
"When she first showed me the photo, I just lost it," Steven Alexander said. "How could you not? I was like, 'Did you coordinate this with them?' Because it was so perfect."
Steven Alexander decided to share the image on Reddit March 2, and the image only increased in popularity since then.
It has been viewed over 2 million times.
The Reddit feed spawned countless Photoshop images of Jordan Alexander.
"The Mona Lisa one cracked us up the first time we saw it we just died laughing," Steven Alexander told WHAM. "Then the one where she is Photoshopped in with all the current politicians running for president was really hilarious," he said.
Jordan Alexander doesn't mind her new fame.
"I think it's great that people are taking it and having fun with it," she said. "I think some of the Photoshops are absolutely hilarious."
